Abstract

This paper examines possible wake-vortex encounters by analyzing light detection and ranging (LIDAR) field measurements conducted by DLR, German Aerospace Center and NASA at major international airports (Dallas, Denver, Frankfurt, Memphis, and Munich) comprising 8056 aircraft landings. The applied aircraft separations are analyzed, depending on the involved aircraft types and compared to the International Civil Aviation Organization and recategorization separation standards. Furthermore, the distances between the wake generated by the leading aircraft and the follower are evaluated.
