Runway holding positions and obstacle limitation surfaces
In order for aerodromes to fully respect this standard it requires a very precise planning of the location of the holding position, taking into account the entire aircraft fleet, taxiway system geometric aspects and all approach types.
The verification of the compliance of a runway holding positions is therefore a challenging exercise, in which airsight excels and demonstrated its expertise in several projects.
airsight’s methodologies and tools makes the positioning of holding positions and the identification of possible infringements very efficient.
Also, in some cases, non-compliances to the applicable specifications cannot be ensured: simply because it is “technically” not feasible due to the lack of space, or because a displacement of the holding positions would have a too negative impact on airport capacity.
airsight is capable of conducting a safety assessment as per ICAO or EASA requirements and to recommend mitigating measures to maintain or achieve an acceptable level of safety.
