Abstract : The purpose of the traffic sample model was to develop a standard to test future air traffic systems and equipment. A model was constructed of a three-dimensional aircraft movement operating in the Los Angeles Air Route Traffic Control Center's (ARTCC) area. The model contained Instrument Flight Rule flight operational data which occurred on March 14, 1973, under the control of the Los Angeles ARTCC during a three-hour period. An air traffic model was developed consisting of 619 operations generated by 512 aircraft flights. This model is representative of the operations of a high-density domestic center. Also included are data analyses of the operation of airports and aircraft in the model. (Modified author abstract) Portions of this document are not fully legible.
