ENGINE-OUT TAKEOFF PATH OPTIMIZATION OUT OF TERRAIN CHALLENGING AIRPORTS
B. Masson, M. Bain, J. Page
Keywords: takeoff, rnp, large aircraft, engine out procedure, path planning
Recent advances in robot path planning have been applied to the complex problem of aircraft takeoff path optimization in case of engine failure, particularly in terrain restricted airports. Results show that the tuning of single query methods can yield viable paths that can considerably augment the allowable maximum takeoff weight.
