Air traffic density in India and the world at large is growing fast and posing challengingproblems. The problems encountered can be parameterized as flight delay, workload of air trafficcontrollers and noise levels in and around aerodromes. Prediction and quantification of theseparameters aid in developing strategies for efficient air traffic management. In this study, themethod used for quantifying is by simulation and analysis of the selected aerodrome and airspace. 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 militaryaircraft 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 contourprediction, especially for the test flying military aircraft is sounding a wake up call to thecommunities living in the vicinity of the Airport.
