Changes to approach procedures at Adelaide Airport’s secondary runway

18 April 2019

When will this change occur?

Airservices will make changes to some approach procedures for aircraft arriving to Adelaide Airport’s secondary runway from July 2019.

Why are the changes necessary?

Since 2007, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has encouraged its members to implement approach procedures with vertical (straight up and down) guidance to improve safety for aircraft arriving to and landing at airports.

One way to do this is to make it possible for aircraft to use Baro-VNAV technology.

Baro-VNAV is a technology available on most modern aircraft. It allows aircraft to land more smoothly, without using ground based navigation equipment. It also reduces the workload for pilots and decreases their reliance on visual assessments, making landing safer.

The introduction of Baro-NAV technology requires minor changes to existing arrival procedures at Adelaide Airport.

What is going to change?
