NextGen Task J: Implementation of NextGen Air Traffic Management system. Integrated Airport Initiative. Benefit-Cost Analysis of Aircraft Arrival Management Systems (AAMS)

PI Vitaly Guzhva

The main task was to evaluate AAMS implemented at CLT (with US Airways) and MSP (with Delta Airlines) and quantify its costs and benefits.

We collected six months of data before AAMS implementation and 6 months of data after the implementation, conducted statistical analysis and delivered the cost benefit analysis to the FAA.
