Eight Pacific civil aviation authorities, including Pacific airports representatives, participated in an expert airport runway safety training webinar organised by the Pacific Aviation Safety Office (PASO) on Thursday 25 June.
The specialist training was designed to support and practically prepare PASO States civil aviation authorities and airports for mandatory International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) runway condition reporting requirements, ahead of a worldwide implementation deadline of 5 Nov 2020.
The PASO airport runway safety training was specific to wet weather conditions experienced by Pacific airport runways and looked at how to report runway surface conditions in real-time.
Around 35 participants from PASO States civil aviation authorities and their airport authority runway and aerodrome safety teams from the Cook Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu were introduced to the new international standardised methodology in the PASO online training webinar.
