Abstract : Air traffic density in India and the world at large is growing fast and posing challenging problems. The problems encountered can be parameterized as flight delay, workload of air traffic controllers and noise levels in and around aerodromes. Prediction and quantification of these parameters aid in developing strategies for efficient air traffic management. In this study, the method used for quantifying is by simulation and analysis of the selected aerodrome and air space. This paper presents the results of simulation of HAL Bangalore International Airport, which is used by civil as well as military aircraft. With the test flying of unscheduled military aircraft and the increase in the civil air traffic, this airport is hitting the limit of acceptable delay. The workload on air traffic controllers is pushed to high during peak times. The noise contour prediction, especially for the test flying military aircraft is sounding a wake up call to the communities living in the vicinity of the Airport.
