AbstractInterest in commercial aircraft formations is growing as a way to reduce airspace congestion and carbon footprint. The realization of these formations requires serious consideration of formation contingencies and safety during closer-in maneuvering of large commercial air- craft. This paper presents considerations and requirements for commercial aircraft formation operations, a sample contingency plan for a formation of up to 7 commercial aircraft based on these considerations and areas for further research. It provides a solid base, inspired by proven military practice, from which further development may proceed.
