    Aircraft type, aircraft size, number of terminals, and degree of nonstop routing for a V/STOL transportation system in the Northeast Corridor are chosen by exploring a wide range of combinations. Helicopter and STOL aircraft ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Godly, Martin A. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1981], 1981)
    Introduction: The adequacy of air transportation in New England has been the subject of intermittent debate-over the last twenty years-, culminating in the Civil Aeronautics Board's 1970-1974 "New England Service Investigation" ...
  • Dodge, Steven Malcolm (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1973], 1973)
    Within the next decade area navigation is to become the primary method of air navigation within the United States. There are numerous radio navigation systems that offer the capabilities of area navigation to general ...
  • Williamson, Elizabeth Louise ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1988], 1988)
    Airlines have recently realized the importance of an effective seat inventory control system on revenues and profits. Yet, at the same time, there is a lack of practical optimization models for determining the number of ...
  • Nissenberg, James M. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1996], 1996)
    It is conventional wisdom among informed observers of the U.S. airline industry that the passengers who fly full-service, hub-and-spoke-style, "traditional" airlines like American, United and Delta are significantly different ...
  • Chen, Edmund ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1995], 1995)
    The way passenger traffic is distributed at multiple airport systems continues to intrigue air transportation planners, urban planners, and policy-makers as researchers attempt to unravel how airlines, air travelers and ...
  • Skwarek, Daniel Kew ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1996], 1996)
    The focus of revenue management research efforts has historically been on the development of seat optimizers which find revenue maximizing booking limits by fare class in a nested fare class structure. Significantly less ...
  • Tam, Koon-Ho Joseph ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1975], 1975)
    This study attempts to obtain an overall picture of air transportation in Mainland China, domestic and international, past and present, so as to lay the ground for further studies. A brief history of early aviation development ...
  • Simpson, R. W. ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1966], 1966)
    As part of a continuing study of the application of V/STOL aircraft to the transportation problems of the Northeast Corridor, the U.S. Department of Commerce has requested that detailed data be developed on schedules, ...
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Flight Transportation Laboratory (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1982], 1982)
    Functional summary: The Air Traffic Control (ATC) Subsystem of the Man-Vehicle System Research Facility (MVSRF) is a hardware/software complex which provides the MVSRF with the capability of simulating the multi-aircraft, ...
  • Blumer, Terry P.; Simpson, R. W.; Wiley, John R. (Cambridge : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1976, 1976)
    TOPSIM, a terminal simulation package developed at M.I.T., was used to simulate Tampa's landside terminal and to study its capacity-congestion characteristics as traffic levels increase. Tampa has no congestion problems ...
  • Van Acker, Jan (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1991], 1991)
    The thesis examined the effects on competition of deregulation in the airline industry by analyzing changes in concentration over the ten-year period 1979-1989 in two sets of origin-destination city-pair markets: the top ...
  • Imrich, Thomas (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory [1971], 1971)
    A system concept for a cockpit traffic situation display (TSD) was developed and a preliminary evaluation was undertaken to investigate the effect of a TSD on safety, efficiency, and capacity in the 3rd generation NAS/ARTS ...
  • Joint DOT-NASA Civil Aviation Research and Development Policy Study.; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration; Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Flight Transportation Laboratory ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept, of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1970], 1970)
    Summary: This report is concerned with describing the possible application of future air transportation systems within urban areas of the United States. The planning horizon extends to 1995 and the report focuses on the ...
  • St. George, Martin J. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    A deterministic model was developed to study the effects of inefficient scheduling on flight delays at hub airports. The model bases the delay calculation on published schedule data and on user-defined airport capacities. ...
  • Dopart, Kevin Peter (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    Controller and display interactions and information requirements in an advanced Air Traffic Control (ATC) system are investigated. A description of the present ATC system and of some proposed developments for the future ...
