The aircraft flight procedures model is used to construct aircraft flight paths and performance schedules for specified operational procedures. The computer model algorithms were derived from fundamental aircraft and engine performance relationships or from operational characteristics applicable to specific aircraft types. The flight path and performance schedule data generated by the model are compatible with the input data requirements of the FAA's INM and the USAF's NOISEMAP...Software Description: The flight procedures model was developed and installed on the EPA's IBM 370/168MP computer system. The program was written in FORTRAN IV language and executed interactively under TSO. 50 K bytes of core storage are required to operate the model.
