The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Annex 14 to the 1944 Chicago Convention contains the Standards and Recommended Practices (specifications) that prescribe the physical and operational characteristics to be provided for at aerodromes.

This 4-day course enables the participants to interpret and implement the Annex 14 specifications related to Runways, Taxiways, Aprons and adjacent areas. Based on best practices, the participants will become knowledgeable about the configuration, dimensioning and design of these fundamental infrastructural elements and will learn how to fulfil ICAO requirements. Furthermore, particular attention is set on the theoretical and practical background of the above mentioned ICAO regulations, and on the implementation of possible mitigation measures in case of non-compliance to the 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.

Dipl.-Ing. Jan Friedrich

Mr Friedrich is responsible at airsight for projects involving aerodrome operations and infrastructure safety and compliance with EASA aerodrome regulations and ICAO SARPs. He has been providing his expertise to the Berlin Airports for many years (airside layout, dimensioning, inspections and audits) and is an expert in the assessment of the compliance of aerodromes with the applicable regulations. He acquired extensive experience on worldwide projects (e.g. Cameroon, Seychelles, Dubai) involving complex operational matters such as the implementation of Low-Visibility Procedures (Warsaw airport), the operation of New Larger Aeroplanes (Frankfurt-Main and Dusseldorf airports) as well as the development of operational strategies to enable continuous safe air operations during construction works.

Mr Friedrich also conducted several comprehensive safety assessments to manage non-compliances with the applicable specifications.

Mr Friedrich is further a renowned trainer in the field of airport planning, sharing his knowledge with other international industry experts (CAAs and aerodrome operators). Current courses led by Mr Friedrich are for instance Runway, Taxiway, Apron Planning and Design (according to EASA CS & GM as well as ICAO Annex 14).
