The main driver within this dissertation is to gain further insights about the realities of enhancing departure aircraft procedures, based on optimal Continuous Climb Operations (CCOs) within Terminal Maneuvering Areas (TMA). The initial study was applied to a long-range wide-body aircraft. The findings were driven by the advantage offered by the direct analysis of real Flight Data Recorder (FDR) data against the simulated data, obtained through the use of orthogonal polynomials such as Chebyshev polynomials, in partnership with Gauss-type integration rules. Within this work, the calculation of improved trajectories aims at reducing the negative environmental aspects of civil aviation on urbanized areas around airports as well as enhancing the operational cost efficiency. The Multi-Objective trajectory optimization was not only applied to multiple environmental factors such as fuel consumption and noise impacts, but also was constrained by Air Traffic Control (ATC) operational restrictions from a real scenario. The problem, tackled through a multi-objective optimization process based on CCO principles by a Chebyshev-Gauss-Lobatto (CGL) pseudospectral Method, relies on a numerical framework that bears out the benefits in terms of fuel consumption and noise emissions. Therefore, this study promotes the need for investigating, not only the implementation of a CCO generally assumed as an uninterrupted climb departure, but an optimal CCO.
