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
