AIR ROUTE CAPACITY MODELS

Abstract: Three simple air route capacity models are developed. The first model is based on the assumption of common average speed of aircraft. This model gives a quick, rough estimate of an air route capacity. The second model is based on the assumption that overtaking of one aircraft by another is not allowed. This model gives the minimum capacity of a route. The third model is based on allowance for a certain maximum number of overtakings. This model gives a relatively more realistic estimate of the air route capacity. The models are intended as preliminary design aids for planners and designers of air route networks.
