Trajectory modeling is basic work for 4D-Route modeling, conflict detection and air traffic flow management. This paper proposes a novel algorithm based on coordinate prediction for trajectory calculation. We demonstrated through simulations with flight position and ground speed, and experimental results show that our-trajectory calculation exhibits much better performance in accuracy.
