Abstract : A graphic simulation study was made of the Atlanta terminal area to provide comparisons between two proposed sites for a second major airport based on air traffic control considerations. Terminal area air traffic control procedural plans were developed incorporating each new site. Through the use of a questionnaire, developed around factors that comprise an air traffic control subsystem, each site was evaluated by a panel of 12 air traffic control specialists for each of four different wind directions.
