Demonstration projects

NATCLM - North Atlantic “cruise Climb ”Lateral deviation” and “Mach number” flight trials demonstration

Type: arie

Countries: New York FIR

Domains: Oceanic/en-route

Description

The project included a set of activities for aircraft trajectory optimisation, encompassing all three dimensions where optimisation is possible in the oceanic domain: vertical (cruise climb), lateral (optimised route), longitudinal (time, cost index – Mach number).

 Number of trials: 48

Benefits

CO2 benefit per flight (kg): 90-650
