GRF Methodology: Benefits and Implementation Challenges
Runway Safety • 2h 14m
The Global Reporting Format (GRF) methodology provide a standardized common terminology and phraseology for the description of runway surface conditions that can be objectively used by aerodrome operator inspection personnel, air traffic controllers, aircraft operators and flight crew.
The preparation for the GRF Implementation is fundamental to benefit from this enhanced reporting system and by understanding the related implementation challenges the concerned stakeholders will be ready for the GRF deployment at Airports in order to mitigate the risk of Runway excursion.
