Comparing Methods of Calculating Aircraft Engine Emissions of Harmful Exhaust Components During the Takeoff and Landing Cycle in the Airspace of an Airport


An airport authority needs accurate information about the actual amount of harmful emissions being generated within its airspace, to be able to take measures leading to their reduction. This article presents two methods for estimating the amount of these emissions from aircraft engines during the take off and landing cycle (LTO) in the airspace of a medium-sized airport: one based on the total amount of the aircraft annually operated in it, and a second, more precise, one for a specific airline annually operating at this airport. The conclusions stemming from the comparison of these methods can support the introduction of operational and technical procedures reducing harmful emissions in the airport airspace during LTO cycle.
