  • Odier, Edouard Christian (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1976], 1976)
    This report examines the problem of determining runway fees at major commercial airports when the objective is the maximization of social benefits. Unlike most of the analytical work that has been performed to date, the ...
  • Lim, Liang Poh (Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    Using actual data gathered from field surveys and an extensive literature survey, this work examines and evaluates the economic and financial performance of the U.S. airports. A detailed analysis of the economics of airport ...
  • Eriksen, Steven Edward; Liu, Elliott Wu-Hsun. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory ; [1979], 1979)
    Introduction: One of the axioms in the air transportation industry is that advances in technology have led to a greater amount of passenger travel by air. Improvements in airframe and engine design have increased range, ...
  • Higginbottom, Samuel L.; Burgess, E. H. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    Introduction: THE U.S. AIRLINE INDUSTRY HAS BEEN EXPOSED TO A PERIOD OF MAJOR SURGERY DURING THE PAST THREE YEARS AND HAS SURVIVED. VIEWED FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE CAB, IT WAS NATURAL THAT THE GREAT IMPROVEMENT IN ...
  • Odoni, Amedeo R.; Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1976], 1976)
    1. The addition of the fifth runway at Schiphol increases the airport hourly capacity for landings by almost 100%, and the capacity for takeoffs by more than 40%. 2. The current runway system will provide good levels of ...
  • Fortune, Stephen James (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1981], 1981)
    In the past decade many major U.S. airports have encountered extensive opposition to plans for future growth and expansion from environmentalists and community groups who cite the noise and air pollution created and the ...
  • Wickham, Richard Robert ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1995], 1995)
    Forecasting is arguably the most critical component of airline management. Essentially, airlines forecast demand to plan the supply of services to respond to that demand. Forecasts of short-term demand facilitate tactical ...
  • Kirby, Mark Samuel; Hansman, Robert John (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    Real-time measurements of ice growth during artificial and natural icing conditions were conducted using an ultrasonic pulse-echo technique. This technique allows ice thickness to be measured with an accuracy of ł0.5 mm; ...
  • Sadoune, Michel (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1987, c1987)
    Air-traffic congestion and frequent saturation of major airports require improved Air Traffic Control procedures to make the flow of traffic more uniform and increase system capacity. Advanced technologies allow an increased ...
  • Hazelton, Lyman R. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1991], 1991)
    This thesis describes an expert system to aid in the management of operations in complex qualitative domains characterized by multiple parallel activities with time-critical relationships. An extension to "standard" temporal ...
  • Mann Robert Wellesley (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1976], 1976)
    A short-haul helicopter service demand analysis on journey to work trips between Nassau and Suffolk counties and the New York central business district was performed over several operational policy/scenario combinations. ...
  • Dogan, Norry ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    Introduction: The goal of this thesis is to test the flyability of a display system that uses a King Radio KEAO-346 altimeter and Micrologic ML-3000 LORAN-C receiver for final approach guidance and to model the dynamics ...
  • Appel Peter H. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1987], 1987)
    A generalized environment which facilities the development of various types of schedules has been developed. This environment includes an extensive user interface in which a graphics terminal and a mouse is used to display ...
  • Hwoschinsky, Peter V. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology [Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1975], 1975)
    A seventy hour flight test program was accomplished to determine the suitability and accuracy of a low cost Omega navigation receiver in a general aviation aircraft. An analysis was made of signal availability in two widely ...
  • Ryan, Justin Mark; Hansman, Robert John. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    A number of signal processing algorithms were developed for analyzing ultrasonic signals used to measure aircraft ice accretion in flight. A high speed digital signal acquisition system was designed and constructed to ...
  • Zickus, Jeffrey S. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    Airline revenue management entails protecting enough seats for late-booking, high-fare passengers while still selling seats which would have otherwise gone empty at discounted fares to earlier-booking customers. In the ...
  • Lewis, Dale B. (Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1994], 1994)
    Value density is often considered when considering the choice whether to ship cargo by air or by water. However, although cargo value is directly linked to the overall cost of shipment, it is the deciding factor in mode ...
  • Wischmeyer, Carl Edward (Cambridge, Mass. : Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1976, 1976)
    Introduction: Omega navigation has great potential as a navigation sensor for general aviation aircraft. Advantages of Omega navigation include signal availability at all altitudes, and no need for overflying of various ...
  • MacDonald, Bruce A. (Cambridge, Mass. : Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986, 1986)
    A generalized model of the domestic en route air traffic control system is constructed, which can be used to predict the rate at which controllers will need to intervene in the flow of radar-controlled traffic to prevent ...
  • Munds, Allan J. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1969], 1969)
