Eurocontrol tests wake turbulence separation plan

A secondary runway aiming point (SRAP) is therefore created. Sessions were organized for 12 two-pilot crews, each flying 14 simulated approaches at Germany’s Munich Airport.

In a first variant of the concept, all lights were illuminated, meaning threshold and approach lights of both the primary and secondary aiming points remained switched on. To maximize benefits, the approach glide slope to the SRAP could be an increased glide slope, at 3.5 degrees instead of the usual 3 degrees. Eurocontrol deems the trials successful.

Eurocontrol hopes to bring a validated SRAP concept to maturity by 2023, meaning a deployment phase could then be plotted.
