AIR NAVIGATION AND TRAFFIC CONTROL IN THE TERMINAL AREA

Nathaniel Braverman

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: The proper exploitation of the capabilities of modern air transportation demands the ability to launch and retrieve large numbers of aircraft in the terminal areas in short times. The proper exploitation of time as a parameter of modern air transportation requires that weather, an uncontrolled and somewhat unpredictable element, be eliminated as a retardant to flight operations. Terminal Area air navigation and traffic control aids and systems have as their objective the satisfaction of these two basic requirements.
