Title: The impact of the microwave landing system on runway capacity at regional airports
Authors: Hamed-Abdelouahab, Farouk M.
Issue Date: 1990
Publisher: © Farouk Mustapha Hamed Abdelouahab
Abstract: The Microwave Landing System (MLS) has the ability to support curved and steep angle approaches and provides improved precision approach guidance compared with the current Instrument Landing System (ILS). Then MLS characteristics produce reduced inter-arrival spacing when compared to ILS procedures and therefore increase runway capacity if the runway occupancy time is not the limiting factor. This study considers the effect of MLS on runway capacity at British regional airports. [Continues.]
