New ICAO Methodology for Assessing & Reporting Runway Surface Conditions (GRF)
COVID-19 Webinar Series • 26-May-2020
The new ICAO methodology for assessing and reporting runway surface conditions, commonly known as the Global Reporting Format (GRF), enables the harmonized assessment and reporting of runway surface conditions and a correspondingly improved flight crew assessment of take-off and landing performance. The 5 November 2020 applicability date for the GRF is fast approaching.
In partnership with key international organisations ICAO is supporting its Member States and stakeholders as they start their planning and preparing for the implementation. This webinar runs as a panel discussion and provides an opportunity to hear from different subject matter experts on implementation of the GRF.
