AS 18/05 - Amendments to Procedures for Air Navigation Services (PANS) - Aerodromes
Implement two principal amendments to PANS-Aerodromes arising from Amendment 1. The first principal amendment is to split the PANS into two Parts: Part I Aerodrome certification, safety assessments and aerodrome compatibility; and Part II - Aerodrome operations management. The second principal amendment contains the most significant consequences for Australian civil aviation legislation. Principally, this is the inclusion of requirements for runway surface condition assessment and reporting.
PANS-Aerodromes is intended to be incorporated during the PIR of CASR Part 139 and MOS Part 139 including the supporting advisory circulars. However, Amendment 1 to PANS-AIM was out of scope and timeframe for the original PIR.
CASA needs to consider the safety versus cost risks involved with runway surface condition assessment and reporting due to the relatively benign weather conditions that exist in Australia as opposed to northern Europe and America.
The amendments to PANS-Aerodromes will become applicable on 5 November 2020. The requirements for runway surface condition assessment and reporting are not being implemented during the PIR of Part 139 due to the timing of the applicability of Amendment 1.
Any requirements deemed applicable to Australian aerodromes will need to be assessed from a cost / risk perspective; therefore, a separate project will need to be raised prior to considering or introducing any changes to Part 139 post the currently underway PIR.
