The temporary change of declared landing and take-off distances is a very important instrument for airport operations. It enables to maintain air operations during construction works or after an incident – instead of closing the runway.
Nevertheless, the displacement of thresholds is often conducted in a rush by untrained staff, possibly resulting in the non-consideration of several safety critical aspects.
The main purpose of this 2-day course is to provide to the staff involved in airport operations (incl. oversight and regulators) with the necessary knowledge of the minimum technical and operational requirements for re-declaring declared distances and displacing thresholds.
Attendees will learn about the technical and operational limitations on runway operations, the applicable obstacle clearance criteria, the infrastructural requirements (incl. markings, lighting, NAVAID) as well as the operational procedures e.g. for promulgating reduced distances and controlling hazards.
Through practical exercises, participants will be required for different scenarios to determine the threshold locations, assess the consequences on operations, calculate the available declared distances, as well as define the applicable requirements on marking and lighting.
Please note: This course can also be booked as an in-house version in German - however, the course material is only available in English.
airsight offers this training course on request, worldwide. At the end of the course, all participants will receive an airsight certificate based on EASA training regulations, which is highly recognized throughout the aviation industry.
