SOURDINE I I Report Summary

Project ID: 11011
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: Spain

NAAPs and NADPs implementation plan

Show WHEN, HOW and WHERE to implement the Sourdine II procedures;
The Sourdine II departure procedures are found to be currently implementable, while the arrivals should follow a stepped implementation (improvement cycle) as follows:
WHEN? When valued by decision maker after local assessment processes. How? Through 4 STEPS (the last defines the cycle for more improvement) STEP 1 implementation, with the current situation, will take full advantage of existing technology. STEP 2 , the less intrusive procedures can be implemented in the short-term in a busy traffic ATM system. STEP 3 the more intrusive procedures can be implemented in the short term in low density traffic.

Where? The Sourdine II Arrival procedures currently in Step 1 (of the implementation cycle)
- Procedure II can be implemented in large airports
- Procedure V in medium airports
- Procedure III in small airports

Procedure IV should be further assessed for maintenance evaluation, feasibility and acceptance by the users.Jump to STEP2 should be introduced in high density traffic once the challenges to define operational procedures that can be used by flight crew with no significant change in workload are solved and ways are found among all as to maintain minimum separation between aircraft resulting in keeping the airports’ safety and capacity level.
