Airspeed And Height Profiles Setting For Time Based Flight Arrivals

Abstract : This paper addresses a specific aspect of air traffic control services, namely the achievement of an orderly and expeditious flow of air traffic under time constrained continuous descent approach. More specifically, a futuristic 4D trajectory application where the air traffic controller will ask an aircraft to overfly a meter fix at a specific time is addressed. This paper presents a new methodology to compute reference horizontal and vertical airspeed for time constrained descent which satisfy length and endpoint constraints. The proposed approach is based on the shaping of both the controlled true airspeed (TAS) of the aircraft and its vertical speed. Simulation results illustrate the efficiency of the proposed design with respect to the time and speed constraints.
