Refining Aircraft Trajectories for Simulation

We have been working on improving aircraft profile trajectories in our simulator, and have used ADSB data to model real aircraft performance against the published Eurocontrol data.

Of initial interest is the climb and descent performance in the Terminal Area. We analyzed over 10 million squits from 32,000 flights grouped by type and came up with some interesting conclusions.
