ABSTRACT
The following paper intends to develop a translog model of the pollutants emission in Brazilian air transportation according to the flight stages characteristics (flight distance, aircraft type, etc). The model will focus on the segment of passenger transportation in civil aviation and the statistical model of fuel consumption will be based in a historical Brazilian database from 1997 to 2004. The assessment is performed in two stages. In the first, the translog consumption model is defined and estiamted; in the second, the pollutants emission coefficients are calculated through FAA’s (Federal Aviation Administration) spreadsheets. The developed model can be easily processed by computers and through the creation of an user interface can produce a brand new pollutants emission calculator.
