Get Ready for Global Reporting Format with New Quick Start Guide
- 14 Jun 2021
With the 4 November 2021 implementation deadline of the new Global Reporting Format for Runway Surface Conditions fast approaching, the Regional Operational Safety Committee developed a Quick Start Guide on Global Reporting Format exclusively available to ACI Asia-Pacific members.
The main purpose of the Quick Start Guide is to help airports quickly understand and implement the GRF before referring to other detailed and technical documents on the subject.
The Quick Start Guide starts with on the background of the new methodology followed by an explanation of the assignment of the runway condition code. Finally, two worksheets are provided for airports to come up with the Runway Conditions Report (RCR) and for filling out observations made on the runway for submission to air traffic control.
