Data-driven flight procedure simulation and noise analysis in a large-scale air transportation system
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2018)
Aircraft noise is a growing source of community concern around airports. Despite the introduction of quieter aircraft, increased precision of onboard guidance systems has resulted in new noise impacts driven by overflight ...
Full efficiency benefits and implementation considerations for cruise altitude and speed optimization in the National Airspace system
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2014)
This study examines the potential fuel burn benefits of altitude and speed optimization in the cruise phase of flight for domestic airlines in the United States. Airlines can achieve cost reductions and reduce environmental ...
