These parameters can also be controlled through constructed heuristics in case ground delay
government on Wednesday imposed its first fine on an international carrier for keeping passengers aboard a plane during an extended ground delay
, slapping a $150,000 penalty on Pakistan International Airlines.
To prevent a backlog of flights from clogging tarmacs, airports institute the Ground Delay
of Transportation's ground delay
rule because of runway construction at New York JFK.
If planes are backed up during a storm, the FAA sends a ground delay
alert, says Rebecca Trexler, a representative for the agency.
A similar filter also should be used to smooth the measured transmission response data prior to the ground delay
A ground delay
only inconveniences passengers, but in-flight delays can be deadly.
A CDR offers a standardized departure when the only alternatives are to accept a ground delay
or refile a new route to avoid the adversely affected airspace.
It includes modules for field condition reporting/eNOTAM integration, live dashboards of key operations metrics, flight and airspace visualization, and "long onboard" ground delay
management (Tarmac Delay Monitor*).
INFORM will also deliver the GroundStar HubControl application that is designed for a pro-active and optimized management of the complete aircraft turnaround process in order to improve on-time performance and reduce tactical ground delay
Via CDM conference calls, the ATCSCC can propose a new solution--a Ground Delay
Program (GDP)--and include it in their operational plan.
