Title:
Quantifying probabilities of exceeding the maximum Mach number in cruise flight using operational flight data 
Abstract:
We present a novel approach that enables a single airline to quantify its probability of exceeding the maximum Mach number in cruise flight, a so-called Mach burst event, using the airline’s operational flight data. First, an incident model is developed that includes the physics-based relationships between aircraft-specific and environmental factors that determine the current aircraft’s Mach number. The statistics of the environmental factors, specifically changes in air temperature and wind spe...    »
