Original Paper


In this paper, we use car-following theory to propose a model with consideration of multi-telegraph poles and electrical wires to describe a single helicopter’s flying behavior in the low airspace with a parallel electrical wire network. The numerical results show that the proposed model can describe the qualitative effects of the parallel electrical wire network on the evolutions of a helicopter’s speed, safe distances for the telegraph poles and electrical wires and safe sphere. These results can help us to better understand the helicopter’s flying behavior in the low airspace with a parallel electrical wire network.
