Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Dubai International Airport has set as an aim to become the leading connecting hub between Europa and Asia. As to be cope with the stresses being put on the airspace in terms of holding times, fuel efficiency and environmental impacts, an analysis has been made concerning the future technology in air traffic management: Time based Operations. This project has revealed that it is possible to maintain the current mean capacity of 29 aircraft/ hour while flying an optimal vertical descent profile. However, exceeding that capacity is not possible with the methods used in this project. The conclusion is that the only forward is Dynamic Controlled of Arrival, together with the reorganization of the entire airspace of Dubai.
