More environmentally friendly and predictable flight profiles
Approach operations at busy airports are louder and less fuel efficient than they should be. One way to improve this situation is to assist pilots to better handle current restrictions and constraints as well as weather conditions. Success hinges on the pilots’ skills and their access to important information, like actual wind status. The EU-funded DYNCAT project will set a course for more environmentally friendly and more predictable flight profiles in the terminal manoeuvring area (TMA). It will support pilots in their configuration management during approach and, by analysing the mismatch of aircraft and air traffic control procedures, propose improvements to on-board and ground operations. This includes the identification of possible regulatory changes for air traffic management (ATM) and the assessment of their ecological and economical potential.
