Abstract

Aircraft mass is an important parameter in many ways, either to build aircraft performance models, to predict flight trajectories, or to simulate air traffic. Mass data is usually considered as sensitive information for airlines and is, therefore, not disclosed to researchers publicly. In this paper, we use two methods to infer the mass of an aircraft at its takeoff phase. The first is by studying the kinetic model at lift-off moment. The second is to look at the motion of aircraft on the runway at each sample moment to estimate the mass recursively.
