CEE 5614: Analysis of Air Transportation Systems Fall 2011 Assignment 4: Air Transportation Systems Analysis Date Due: October 17, 2011 Instructor: Trani Problem 1 The National Airspace System is a complex system with thousands of commercial flights each day. The file nasOperations_2011.xls contains a sample of the activities that happened in the NAS on December 20, 2008. The header and a few flights are illustrated in Table 1. Table 1. Sample NAS Flights File. Examine operations in the NAS performed using wide-body transport aircraft represented by the Boeing 767 family (models B762, B763, B764 and B767) and Airbus A330 family represented by the following models: A330, A332, and A333. a) Find cruise flight levels assigned to all modern wide-body aircraft stated above and establish a possible correlation between cruise flight level and distance flown. Plot and find the best fit model. Explain the trends observed. b) For the aircraft fund in Part (a), create a histogram representing the stage length flown by the aircraft vs frequency of operations flying a given range of distances. I suggest you partition the range of distances

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
