Support for Aerodrome Certification
Douala and Yaoundé Airports
A significant part of an aerodrome certification process is the assessment of the compliance the aerodrome infrastructure, equipment, and procedures against the applicable regulations (ICAO). Based upon the results of such assessment, it is possible to establish a target-oriented and systematic approach in order to achieve safe operating conditions.
In cooperation with the Flughafen München GmbH – inter alia responsible for the project management –, extensive compliance analysis of the airside infrastructure, procedures and equipment were conducted at the airports Douala (DLA) and Yaoundé Nsimalen (NSI).
After an in-depth off-site assessment (e.g. based on obstacle data, CAD plans, certificates and other data available), a two weeks on-site inspection campaign was conducted by airsight, amongst others to measure or collect information not yet available.
To manage such large and complex aerodrome infrastructure and operations compliance inspections against national or international regulations, airsight developed a unique methodology supported by associated tools and databases (e.g. compliance check-lists, software for the automatic evaluation of possible obstacle infringements, geo-referenced pictorial documentation of findings). These enable to conduct thorough and systematic compliance verifications to various ICAO SARPs or other specifications (guidance material or national specifications), as well as to document efficiently possible findings.
