Agent-based modeling and simulation of complex system provides new methods for system's analysis, control and decision-making. This paper presents a modeling and simulation method of air traffic flow, constructs computer models of flight agent and control agent, and discusses the performance evaluation parameters of air traffic control system. Furthermore, a computer prototype system has been developed about the simulation of air traffic flow operating in a control sector. According to the results of simulation, this paper analyzes the effectiveness of control decision-making and reveals the emergent phenomena of air traffic operation such as congestion and flight delays.
