The original airport configuration
in Jeddah was only designed to support an annual capacity of 7 million passengers, but
The most common causal factors of runway incursions include: complex airport configuration
, low-visibility conditions, cockpit-management issues and non-tower airport operations.
It completes a range of products designed for each type of aircraft, airport configuration
and specific user operating conditions.
The tool considers numerous constraints and factors affecting departure sequence including flight departure time, traffic flow constraints, wake vortex spacing rules and current airport configuration
* How do changes to the physical airport configuration
affect my staffing levels?
Knowing the airport configuration
will help make sure you don't head for the wrong runway after you break out.
To directly address issues involving human performance for a future airport configuration
, human-in-the-loop simulation is the only way to validate assumptions in advance and reduce the risk of an inaccurate cost-benefit analysis.
In a general notice (GENOT), the FAA says that air traffic managers must review the impact that airport configuration
and local conditions may have on TIPH operations, and prepare a facility directive that prescribes local procedures.
