Synthesis Topics

Aircraft Characteristic Database

The objective of this research is to create a guidebook of Aircraft Characteristics. The first step is a synthesis that summarizes the data sources available for determining Aircraft Characteristics for airport planning, design, construction, and operation. The characteristics would include at a minimum Aircraft Approach Category (AAC), Airplane Design Group (ADG), Taxiway Design Group (TDG), wingspan, tail height, length, Max Takeoff Weight (MTOW), main gear spacing, cockpit to main gear spacing and approach speed. Once the synthesis identifies all of the sources of aircraft data, the next step is a creating guidebook or online database of Aircraft Characteristics that could be periodically updated as additional information becomes available.
