Abstract : A basic conceptual model of the entire Air Transportation System is being developed to serve as an analytical tool for studying the interactions among the system elements. The model is being designed to function in an interactive computer graphics environment which permits rapid alteration of rules and parameters, as well as continuous real-time graphical monitoring of systems operations. The model described is the first member in an evolving hierarchy of increasingly complex models, progressing in the direction of closer approximation to the real-world Air Transportation System.
