Abstract
Continuous descent operations (CDOs) with required times of arrival (RTAs) have proven to deliver major environmental benefits in terminal maneuvering areas (TMAs) without degrading capacity. When traffic density is high, air traffic controllers (ATC) have to delay flights and assign an RTA different from the aircraft's estimated time of arrival (ETA). In such case, aircraft may have to follow a non-optimum speed profile and possibly be forced to fly powered descents instead of neutral CDOs. Fur...
