Peer Reviewed

Abstract: This paper presents part of the results of a series of investigations under Contract FAA/BRD-236 and FAA/BRD-420 with the Fcdrral Aiviation Agency concerning the use of minimum time track data in airways design for continental and over-ocean routes [1,2]. In general, these studies involved considerations of minimum time tracks in terms of their geographical distribution, lateral separation between opposing tracks, persistence of track locations, and types of track networks that would preserve economic advantages and controllability.
