Summary:

The Iowa State team is working with Rockwell Collins Advanced Technology Center to study the flight en route time variation under different convective weather events. Machine learning algorithms will be built by mining the large-scale nationwide flight data sets and meteorology data sets. The resulted predictive model is expected to provide estimation for aircraft en route time before departure given weather forecast, which is critical for decision making in both airline operations and air traffic management.
