Abstract : An evaluation of a proposed plan for consolidating the functions of three separate approach control facilities in the Jacksonville, Florida terminal area into one Central Approach Control Facility was conducted using the Model B Dynamic Air Traffic Control Simulator at the National Aviation Facilities Experimental Center, Atlantic City, New Jersey. The plan was tested, using two different runway configurations, for the purpose of optimizing the plan and determining its feasibility for handling the peak hour volume of traffic generated by Imeson, Navy Jacksonville and Navy Cecil Airports. The report contains a documentation of the optimized plan indicating terminal flow patterns, control procedures, airspace utilization and equipment configuration. It was concluded that the plan was feasible for handling the specified peak hour traffic and it was recommended that consideration be given to using these procedures for the proposed Jacksonville Central Approach Control Facility.
