Symposium Runway Surface Conditions Assessment and Reporting
STAC was very pleased to organize this Symposium on Runway Surface Conditions Assessment and Reporting at the DGAC Head Office in Paris 31 March and 1 April 2016. The Symposium was a real success since 183 people did participate (for 202 registrations).
We are now on the way of implementation of the Runway Condition Report (RCR) following the recent amendments of ICAO provisions adopted by the Council in March 2016 for application in 2020.
Hopefully the Symposium is a first step of a long series of events which will promote and frame the RCR implementation at the Regional and States’ levels.
The exchanges during question sessions, coffee breaks and lunches, were very fruitful and enriching. The presence of multiple nationalities and most stakeholders involved in the implementation of the RCR have contributed to this success.
Please find below links to download the presentations of the Symposium, as well as supplementary materials. By end of June 2016, STAC will prepare an overview paper to illustrate the main feedbacks and conclusions of the Symposium.
