|This paper considers the problem of solving conflicts between several aircraft. Considering the case when only aircraft heading changes are allowed, we propose a formulation of the multi-aircraft conflict avoidance problem as a mixed-integer linear program, whose solution may be obtained within seconds with standard optimization software. While such a problem formulation and solution is still unsuitable for operational implementation, it may be used as part of a real or fast-time simulation.
