Applied Safety Assessments at Aerodromes

Many aeronautical subjects can trigger a safety assessment, e.g. non-compliances, deviations from regulations and changes in operations or infrastructure. Most applications are of proactive nature but just as important are operational risk assessments of occurrences on daily basis.

Numerous guidelines describe theoretical methodologies for safety assessments. The challenges for the responsible safety personnel are getting started, realising this theory in practical applications and balancing an effective safety assessment with available resources. The selection of the most suitable method strongly depends on the complexity of the subject to be assessed.

This workshop-based 3-day course demonstrates participants from all airport safety related fields possible and proven ways of how to conduct safety assessments in an aerodrome environment and enables them to practice it in exercises. Those can range from day-to-day operational risk assessments (e.g. analysis of occurrences / incidents) to safety assessments of small-scale projects (e.g. design of a new apron taxi procedure or construction works on aircraft stands). As a complement to airsight’s “Safety Assessments at Aerodromes” course, this training focusses on gaining first practical experience in dealing with Safety Assessments to address airport related safety concerns.

Trainer

Christian Hellebrandt, Dipl.-Ing.

Mr. Christian Hellebrandt conducted numerous comprehensive safety assessments for international airports (e.g. Brussels, Dublin, Frankfurt Airport, Warsaw). In the past few years he acquired extensive experience on international projects (e.g. Auckland Airport, Seletar Airport in Singapore) on specific subjects like auxiliary runway concept and obstacles in the vicinity of the runway. Furthermore, he developed the concept of the Aviation State Safety Programme of Germany on behalf of the German Ministry of Transport. Christian is an auditor of SMS and experienced trainer on safety related topics. He notably trained the Turkey Ministry of Transport and the Hong-Kong Air Navigation Service Provider in hazard identification techniques and safety assessment methodologies.

Lydia Schuppe, M.Eng.

Mrs. Lydia Schuppe is part of airsight’s consulting team and contributes with her extensive knowledge in flight and airport operations as well as aircraft systems. Holding a Master’s degree in aeronautical management as a complement to a Bachelor’s degree in aviation systems engineering, she also underwent an airline transport pilot training at former Lufthansa Flight Training.

At airsight Lydia conducted several safety assessments for international airports (e.g. Luxembourg, Dublin, Dubai) involving topics like runway incursion, infrastructural non-compliances and operational issues.

Jan Walther, Dipl.-Ing.

Mr Jan Walther works at airsight in the quality of airsight’s aviation consultant and has extensive expertise in airport operations. He has particularly been involved in complex topics such as runway operations, apron management and air traffic services, ground handling and safety management systems.

In the last few years, he conducted several comprehensive safety assessments – notably on behalf of Dubai Airports – on different specific subjects related for instance to low visibility operations, parallel runway operations and jet blast issues. Jan’s competencies enable him to closely work with air traffic controllers, pilots, operational staff, as well as authorities. Furthermore, Jan is an auditor for SMS and an experienced trainer on auditing in aviation and other safety related topics.
