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 for airports regarding training and managing the performance of individuals with airside driving privileges. This guidance should be applicable to movement area and non-movement area drivers.
Develop guidance to assist airports in understanding the most common sources of FOD and effective solutions to managing the associated risk of this hazard.
Research and develop guidance around involving ramp towers in a local airport's SMS. Explore options for the airport's role in safety oversight given that ramp towers can involve several organizations operating under separate safety management approaches.
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.
