Abstract : For several years Tracor, Inc., the Federal Aviation Administration, the Port of New York and New Jersey Authority, and the Aviation Development Council of New York have pursued an active program of improving the preferential runway system at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). This effort culminated in the development and installation of a Dynamic Preferential Runway System (DPRS), which was designed to break up long periods of continuous community exposure to aircraft overflight while still distributing overflight among communities as equitably as possible. The installation and operation of the DPRS is described in an earlier report. (AD-787 713). This report presents a quantitative analysis of the effect of the DPRS on operations at JFK for August and September of 1972. (Modified author abstract)
