  • Atlantic Interoperability Initiative to Reduce Emissions (AIRE) FAA Results: Trials and Benefits
    • Presented by Thien Ngo
    • Federal Aviation Administration
    • International Air Traffic Interoperability Project Manager
    • [email_address]
  • AIRE Objectives
    • Hasten development of operational procedures to reduce aviation’s environmental footprint on a “gate-to-gate” basis
    • Quantify environmental benefits to aid in formulation of potential business cases
    • Accelerate incorporation and worldwide interoperability of procedures/standards
    • Capitalize on existing technology on either side of Atlantic
    • Identify implementation issues, obstacles, choke points, metrics and solutions, working with our International partners
  • Demonstration Overview
    • Demonstrate emissions savings using reroute request that leverage existing procedures
    • Aircraft also have the opportunity to leverage emissions savings from Advanced Arrivals into Miami
    • Aircraft fly westbound through Santa Maria (LPPO), New York (ZNY), Miami (ZMI), and Miami TRACON
    • During the oceanic phase:
      • Reroutes will allow aircraft to operate in more favorable conditions
      • Flights will be allowed lateral re-routing as requested
  • Key Partners
  • Preliminary AIRE Demo Results - Oceanic
    • The FAA analyzed 73 westbound flights (Lufthansa and Air Europa):
      • Data from airlines was combined with Ocean21/ATOP data to approximate the actual flight trajectory
      • 12 flights excluded due to the lack of a common en-route waypoint (filed plan vs. actual re-routed flight)
      • 9 flights excluded due to inconsistent data (e.g., actual flight files were missing reported times)
      • 52 flights remained for analysis
    • Lateral optimization demonstrates a savings of approximately 24,000 kg of fuel or over 460 kg per flight
    • Equivalent environmental savings of 71 total metric tons of Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 ) or 1.4 metric tons of CO 2 per flight.
  • Preliminary AIRE Demo Results – Oceanic (Cont.) Histogram: Approximate Savings based on 52 Flights
  • Preliminary Advanced Arrival Results - Overall * Part of 2009 AIRE demonstrations City Dates Full TA Partial TA Total Requests SFO 12/07 - 01/10 989 1859 2848 LAX 11/09 - 01/10 40 184 224 MIA* 06/09 - 12/09 19 51 70
  • Preliminary Advanced Arrival Results - Miami Modeled Average 747-400 Operational Differences; HILEY via SUMERS only
    • The fuel consumption represents flights from the SUMRS waypoint
    • Airbus data collected – currently being analyzed
    • Equivalent environmental savings of 1.0 – 1.2 metric tons of CO 2 saved per flight
    Aircraft Type SUMRS Standard Arrival Tailored Arrival Difference 747-400 (carrier A) 4171 kg (9196 lb) 3820 kg (8422 lb) -351 kg (-774 lb) 747-400 (carrier B) 4425 kg (9754 lb) 4027 kg (8878 lb) -398 kg (-877 lb)
  • Conclusions
    • Lateral optimizations have demonstrated savings
    • Savings realized even with partial TAs
    • Lessons learned:
      • Need better meteorological data
      • Strive for consistent data
      • Develop a common approach for methodology/metrics to present benefits
  • Atlantic Interoperability Initiative to Reduce Emissions (AIRE) Outlook for 2010 and Beyond

  • Joint SESAR/FAA AIRE Activities
    • Geographical/Partnership Scope
      • Perform eastbound flight demonstrations
      • Conduct Gate-to-Gate demonstrations
      • Expand participation of ANSPs, airports (city pairs), airlines, business aviation & military flights
    • Technical Scope
      • Include vertical component and/or speed optimization
      • Integrate advanced arrivals into Europe
    • Program Scope
      • Optimize procedures to facilitate transition to operational use
      • Standardize data collection & baseline definitions
      • Develop common approach for metrics and safety cases
