The purpose of this study was to identify and collect performance and operational data and information required to construct flight paths and performance schedules for selected commercial aircarrier aircraft types powered by low-by-pass ratio and high-by-pass ratio turbofan engines. The performance and operational data and information can be used to determine the flight paths and performance schedules for aircraft operating in accordance with specified flight procedures, and over a range of airport temperatures and airport pressure altitudes. In addition, this study effort also included an evaluation of available flight procedures computer programs developed by various organizations such as aircraft manufacturers, consultants, and the Federal government (NASA, FAA, etc.) The purpose of evaluating these programs was to identify existing analytical and computer programming work which can be used in developing a modified computer program model to generate aircraft flight path and performance schedule data which was compatible with the input data requirements of the FAA's INM and the USAF's NOISEMAP.
