COEXISTENCE OF LIGHT AND COMMERCIAL AVIATION AT GENÈVE AÉROPORT
Because of the growth in traffic and changing international standards, Genève Aéroport has asked an independent institution to conduct an analysis of the coexistence of light (sporting , training, etc.) and commercial (scheduled and charter) aviation at Genève Aéroport, from a safety viewpoint.
HOW TO EFFICIENTLY USE THE RUNWAY 04/22 IN GENEVA?
This campaign is part of the ACE project (Airside Capacity Enhancement), which goal is to optimise the use of the runway.
It presents in a simple and synthetic way, how pilots can contribute in the optimisation of the runway occupancy time.
One page is dedicated to the «arrivals», another one to the «departures». Key words are: «be ready, anticipate, react!».
Finally, a page highlights the infrastructure changes implemented or coming soon, enabling to reduce the runway occupancy time as well.
Pilots are truly at the heart of this awareness campaign: they are the key players to the realisation of these ambitious objectives.
«Every movement matters, every second counts!».
A single second might seem weightless; multiplied by 500 movements a day: it is substantial…
STANDARDS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE EUROPEAN AVIATION SAFETY AGENCY (EASA)
At the end of 2016, replacing the certification of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) issued a new certificate to the Aéroport International de Genève. It certifies that the organisation and documentation of processes designed to ensure the safety of airport infrastructure and operations meet the requirements of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). Swiss airports certified for EASA standards are those that handle line and charter traffic while meeting specific technical criteria. Genève Aéroport is the first Swiss airport to have obtained this certification, followed by Zurich, one of the first airports certified in Europe.
EASA has developed standards and recommendations for aerodrome processes that have an impact on safety. The purpose of these standards is that safety and operation of airport infrastructure are ensured at all times. The relevant processes shall be listed in an aerodrome manual, which also serves as a reference for the safety management system. It describes how an organisation identifies, assesses and controls the existing risks.
Together with the airports concerned, FOCA has developed the general framework for aerodrome manuals and safety management systems. On this basis, aerodromes shall define the operating and control procedures specific to their infrastructure. Certified aerodromes are subject to regular controls by the FOCA to ensure that their processes always comply with EASA standards.
