Paper 62 -- Estimating Capacity Requirements For Air Transportation Design

This paper discusses a method for estimating minimum air transportation system capacity requirements using proposed future operational demand cases. Demand profiles are generated by simulating a zero-delay day in the National Airspace System. These demand profiles are then used to estimate the minimum required capacities to satisfy the demand with reasonable delay. The necessary capacity for a given demand case is defined by maximum hourly airport operating rates and en-route sector loadings. Demand cases may vary by operation growth, business model shifts, and route structures. Several demand models and their implications for future air transportation system design are discussed.
