NAVIGATION AND CONTROL REQUIREMENTS OVER INTERNATIONAL ROUTES

Abstract: To best determine requirements for safe and efficient flow of supersonic commercial air transportation on internationa routes we can observe teh trend of the navigation problem from the beginning of the post-World-War-II international operation of commercial air transports. In this operation teh aircraft speed was in the 200-knot bracket. Then, through the higher speed piston-powered aircraft in higher density air traffic conditions experienced during the 50's, navigation and control problems continued to increase to the present high density subsonic jet aircraft traffic. We may also observe the trend of navigation instrumentation, navigation standards, and FAA requirements through this period.
