The project focuses on analyzing the impact of weather on the flight trajectories of commercial aircrafts and the subsequent cost implications in terms of fuel consumption. Utilizing data from the OpenSky database for flight information and the Iowa State University Environmental Mesonet for weather data, our team has developed a comprehensive framework to assess how weather conditions influence flight paths and fuel efficiency.
Stakeholders: Airlines, Pilots and Flight Crew, Airports, Air Traffic Controllers, and Fuel Suppliers.
