  • Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1968], 1968)
    Executive summary: A review is given of the material covered by the MIT/NASA Waterville Valley workshop which dealt with the institutional, socio-economic, operational, and technological problems associated with introducing ...
  • Clarke, Michael D. D.; Wickham, Richard Robert. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1995], 1995)
    Introduction: One of the most important strategic planning capabilities for an airline is the development of a good working understanding of the markets it serves in its network. These capabilities will include ...
  • Cohen, Dayl Arlene; Odoni, Amedeo R. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, [1985], 1985)
    Introduction: The allocation of slots at congested major commercial airports is one of the most difficult problems facing the aviation community today. The stakes involved are very large and the controversy generated by ...
  • Fisher, Michael R. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1987], 1987)
    In this thesis we investigate and analyze express airlines for the purpose of system design. Chapter 1 contains a taxonomy for express carriers that is built around elemental system components, distinguishable from one ...
  • Swan, William M. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1979], 1979)
    This work establishes the conditions for airline system design building from submodels of smaller aspects of air transportation. The first three sections develop submodels which then are combined in extensive numerical ...
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Flight Transportation Laboratory; Project TRANSPORT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology); United States. Dept. of Commerce; United States. Northeast Corridor Transportation Project (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1965], 1965)
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Flight Transportation Laboratory; Project TRANSPORT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology); United States. Dept. of Commerce; United States. Northeast Corridor Transportation Project (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1965], 1965)
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Flight Transportation Laboratory; Project TRANSPORT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology); United States. Dept. of Commerce; United States.

  • Sadoune, Michel ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1989], 1989)
    A Flight Path Generator is defined as the module of an automated Air Traffic Control system which plans aircraft trajectories in the terminal area with respect to operational constraints. The flight path plans have to be ...
  • Rivera, Jorge M.; Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory ; [1980], 1980)
    Growth of the United States air transportation system is currently facing two major barriers: energy and congestion. While the price of fuel has gone up by approximately an order of magnitude in the last 10 years, there ...
  • Hengsbach, Gerd; Odoni, Amedeo R. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1975, 1975)
    Two queuing models appropriate for estimating time dependent delays and delay costs at major airports are reviewed. The models use the demand and capacity profiles at any given airport as well as the number of runways there ...
  • Sheridan, Thomas B.; Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1979], 1979)
    This report describes work performed in the first year of a continuing research project aimed at developing useful methods for measuring the workload of pilots operating aircraft in the ATC system. Good methods of measuring ...
  • Belobaba, Peter ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1985], 1985)
    Background: Research into airline capacity management and yield optimization at the Flight Transportation Laboratory is being performed with the support and funding of the Cooperative Research Program. The focus of this ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A. (Cambridge : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1982], 1982)
    Introduction: 1.1 The Future of the Aviation System. It is nothing if not presumptuous to look ahead twenty years in any phase of human activity. This seems particularly true in civil aviation where the certificated airlines ...
  • Natarajan, Krishnan (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1981], 1981)
    This report describes an extensive evaluation of Loran-C for use by general aviation. Flight, ground, and antenna tests were done. Flight tests measured the accuracy and the ability to make approaches. Receiver reliability ...
  • Seagrave, Norman P. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1979], 1979)
    The charges dealt with here are those paid by international airline operators for the use of airports and airways. At airports, there are charges for landings and takeoffs and various fees or rentals for other facilities ...
  • Wilson, John L. (Cambridge, MA : [Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1995], 1995)
    The value of revenue management to the airlines has been amply demonstrated, both by industry experience and in simulation studies of the reservation process. However, there have been no attempts to determine if the benefits ...
  • Smith, Barry C. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1979, 1979)
    A method of vehicle routing and scheduling for an air based intraurban transportation system is developed. The maximization of level of service to passengers in a system operating under time varying demand is considered ...
  • Simpson, R. W. ([Cambridge, Mass.] : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1966], 1966)
    A detailed study of hourly weather observations in the Northeast Corridor during the periods 0600-2400 for a ten year period 1944-1958 was made to study the implications of weather affecting the operations of a VSTOL Airbus ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Taylor, Morais Anthony. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1976], 1976)
    Introduction: At present there is concern regarding the feasibility and future impact of allowing service by wide-body aircraft into National Airport in Washington. Some of the important issues are: (i) To what extent would ...
