Behind the idea, the output should address the following questions:
• How much removal is adequate to prevent confusion in the cockpit?
• How much tolerance is there for altering the pavement surface?
• Are there mechanical... more »
Updated requirements for runway vertical curves for longitudinal grade changes, mainly for ICAO Code F aircraft and New Large Aircraft (NLA)
Identify practices that airports and their public health partners have successfully used to prevent and mitigate the transmission of communicable diseases.
To support the air transport industry's holistic effort to reduce maintenance costs and safety risks, research is needed to identify airport best practices that could reduce the influence of airfield pavement deicing on accelerated structural deterioration of aircraft carbon brakes and provide guidance to airports on selection and application of these best practices.
A research project that would allow across the board runway length determination analysis.
Develop practical guidance to airports for training and managing the performance of individuals who have airside driving privileges. This is applicable to movement area and non-movement area drivers.
Develop guidance to assist airports in understanding the most common sources of FOD. Tracking and measuring the occurrence's of FOD while tying it back to the root cause or source for the FOD is considered best practice.
Provide information regarding best practices around involving ramp towers in a local airport's SMS program. Ramp towers provide another level of eyes on the system and communication directly with aircraft and ATCT (in many cases). By looping ramp tower operators into the SMS program they can understand and assist with providing an efficient non-movement area operation.
Conduct research on options airports can consider when deciding on an organizational structure for their personnel who will manage airport safety processes. The research should provide recommended structures for airports of all sizes and complexities.
Develop practical guidance on how airports of different sizes and complexities can identify hazards that can lead to runway incursions and recommend actions involving infrastructure changes, prevention systems and safety promotion initiatives that can be adopted.
Develop a new collision risk model and tool to estimate the risk of aircraft collisions with obstacles during the final approach to landing.
