Title: Mathematical Model for Aircraft Landing Trajectory
Keywords: aircraft landing trajectory generation, aircraft modelling

Abstract: A mathematical model with 4 degree of freedom in Matlab for aircraft final landing trajectory is described in this paper. A midsize commercial passenger aircraft similar to an Airbus A320 has been chosen as a reference aircraft. The information about the model parameters are obtained from the passenger aircraft A320-200 specifications, Sofia airport and meteorological station data. The simulated aircraft trajectory is compared with a real landing trajectory obtained from the FlightAware. The development of the model and its application for studying and obtimization different situations of intensive airport traffic are discussed.
