Abstract
Continuous descent operations (CDOs) with required times of arrival (RTA) have been identified as a potential solution for reducing the environmental footprint of aviation in the terminal maneuvering area without compromising capacity. This paper assesses the feasibility of replacing current air traffic control sequencing and merging techniques, mainly based on path stretching and air holding, by a control based on RTA over metering fixes on known and fixed arrival routes. Because the remaining ...
