The new European regulations for aerodrome and competent authorities came into force in 2014 and replaced the Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) specified by ICAO for most aerodromes.

This 4-day course focusses on the EASA regulations related to Aerodrome Planning and Design as specified in the Certification Specifications and the Guidance Material (Book 1 & 2).

It enables the participants to interpret and implement the EASA certification specifications related to Runways, Taxiways, Aprons and adjacent areas, e.g. for planning purposes or as fundamentals for building the Certification Basis within an initial Aerodrome certification procedure or change of the certificate. Based on best practices, the participants will become knowledgeable about the configuration, dimensioning and design of these infrastructural elements and will learn how to fulfill relevant EASA requirements. Furthermore, particular attention is set on the theoretical and practical background of the above mentioned EU requirements.

Besides airport operations staff and planning engineers, this course also targets Aviation Authorities inspectors and aerodrome internal auditing staff in charge of monitoring the compliance or the aerodrome infrastructure with the applicable regulations.

Notes:

  • International attendees not located within an EASA Member State may be advised to participate in the training course “Runway, Taxiway, Apron Planning and Design (ICAO Annex 14)”, as ICAO specifications may be applicable in your country. EASA specifications for aerodrome design are aligned to ICAO requirements, and therefore both proposed courses are very similar.  However, each course is adapted to the legal context, the rule structure, and makes direct references to the applicable written regulations.
  • airsight also offers consulting services to guide aerodrome operators through the certification process.

Trainer

Dirk Anders

Mr Anders is an experienced airport planner, providing on behalf of airsight since more than 10 years his expertise in the field of runway, taxiway and apron planning and design to international clients. He is notably a renowned expert in the field of gate design and aircraft stand layout optimisation and a proficient user of CAD-based applications (AutoCAD / MicroStation / Aviplan).

Mr Anders is very knowledgeable in the international aerodrome regulations (ICAO/EASA), their national implementation, as well as industry’s best-practices. He gathered extensive experience in more than 100 projects for clients including Dubai, Brussels or Auckland Airports – as well as most airports in Germany.

More recently, he provided his support during several weeks on-site to Hannover Airport to assess the compliance of the airside infrastructure with EASA aerodrome regulations.

Another field of expertise of Mr Anders is aerodrome safeguarding and the management of obstacles, as well as flight procedure design according to PANS-OPS.

M.Sc. Moritz Kaschel

Mr. Kaschel holds a Master of Science in Aeronautical Engineering and further specialised in Aerodrome Planning and Design, as well as Airport Operations. As a member of airsight’s consulting team, these combined competencies enable him to assist Aerodromes within their certification process and related fields (e.g. compliance checks and audits, manuals and procedures, ground handling processes). 

At airsight, he conducted several safety assessments and feasibility studies for clients such as Dublin, Frankfurt-Hahn, or Berlin-Tegel. He also conducted inspections of their airside infrastructure (incl. signs, lights, marking), including notably the assessment of the pavement conditions - using drones (as holding a commercial UAV operator license and radiotelephone operator´s certificate).

More recently, he assisted Luxembourg Airport to obtain a new certificate in accordance to the new EASA requirements – a task of several months requiring a good knowledge of the applicable regulations as well as project management skill.

As a talented airport planner, he is an instructor for the airsight course “Runway, Taxiway, Apron Planning and Design” in accordance to ICAO or EASA.

Trainer

Dirk Anders

Mr Anders is an experienced airport planner, providing on behalf of airsight since more than 10 years his expertise in the field of runway, taxiway and apron planning and design to international clients. He is notably a renowned expert in the field of gate design and aircraft stand layout optimisation and a proficient user of CAD-based applications (AutoCAD / MicroStation / Aviplan).

Mr Anders is very knowledgeable in the international aerodrome regulations (ICAO/EASA), their national implementation, as well as industry’s best-practices. He gathered extensive experience in more than 100 projects for clients including Dubai, Brussels or Auckland Airports – as well as most airports in Germany.

More recently, he provided his support during several weeks on-site to Hannover Airport to assess the compliance of the airside infrastructure with EASA aerodrome regulations.

Another field of expertise of Mr Anders is aerodrome safeguarding and the management of obstacles, as well as flight procedure design according to PANS-OPS.

M.Sc. Moritz Kaschel

Mr. Kaschel holds a Master of Science in Aeronautical Engineering and further specialised in Aerodrome Planning and Design, as well as Airport Operations. As a member of airsight’s consulting team, these combined competencies enable him to assist Aerodromes within their certification process and related fields (e.g. compliance checks and audits, manuals and procedures, ground handling processes). 

At airsight, he conducted several safety assessments and feasibility studies for clients such as Dublin, Frankfurt-Hahn, or Berlin-Tegel. He also conducted inspections of their airside infrastructure (incl. signs, lights, marking), including notably the assessment of the pavement conditions - using drones (as holding a commercial UAV operator license and radiotelephone operator´s certificate).

More recently, he assisted Luxembourg Airport to obtain a new certificate in accordance to the new EASA requirements – a task of several months requiring a good knowledge of the applicable regulations as well as project management skill.

As a talented airport planner, he is an instructor for the airsight course “Runway, Taxiway, Apron Planning and Design” in accordance to ICAO or EASA.
