Abstract

The problem of optimizing landing trajectories with respect to noise impact index is addressed. In contrast with previous work, multilandings are considered. In order to make the problem tractable the trajectories are specified in functional form with certain parameters left free for selection by the optimization methods. Constraint of aircraft dynamic behavior, trajectory separation, pilot workload, passenger comfort, and maximum noise intensity all enter into the determination of what is an allowable trajectory. A version of the quasi-Newton iterative procedure is used to determine the optimum parameter values. The results show improvement in noise impact to the airport considered and the potential for even greater improvement at many airports.
