June 2013 | Conference
GfL presented the newly developed Safety Assessment Model for obstacle compatibility approval in direct vicinity of aerodromes according to the recent ICAO / EASA CS-ADR DSN guidelines at the worldwide ATM conference in Chicago, IL. The paper entitled “Methodology to assess the safety of aircraft operations when aerodrome obstacle standards cannot be met” won the Best Paper award by peer review competing against 100 nominees from all around the globe. The generalised methodology developed in this paper may also become a part of ICAO Doc. 9774 Appendix 3. It has been successfully applied for several assessments at Frankfurt Airport in 2012 and 2013 (e.g. for the Alpha Rotex high-rise and the terminal 3 apron control tower). The award-winning paper written by Hartmut Fricke and Christoph Thiel can be downloaded here.
