Better taxiing routes

Recommended Posts

I have found that the taxiing routes given to aircraft departing or arriving could be a bit better, rather than these zigzag route directions, that a lot of times brings one head-on to opposing traffic. Most times this happens when taxiing out to the runway and generally on the ramp. At most large busy airports with inner and outer parallel taxiways, the controllers will use one or the other depending on whether an aircraft is arriving or departing.


Is their any way to fix this?

In short, no. EFB is using the so called Dijkstra-algorithm which is an algorithm to find the shortest path between two points in a given 'network' of nodes and edges. Any other algorithm which would consider AI-traffic would be too complex to realize.
