EASA launches a consultation for new Certification Specifications for Airports

EASA proposes new certification specifications (CS) for aerodrome design in order to facilitate the operations of modern large aeroplanes at existing aerodromes. Modern aircraft have very precise guidance systems for landing / take-off and taxiing; this means that the current international and European provisions for designing runway, taxiway and other areas can be lightened without compromising safety. The new proposal is meant to take this technological evolution into account.
