Next steps

Following the initial step of re-categorisation of ICAO wake provisions into a 6-category scheme, with ‘RECAT-EU’, the second step consists of the determination of a static “Pair-Wise” regime, where each aircraft type pair has its appropriate wake turbulence separation minima. Within the scope of SESAR, P06.08.01 project has developed a new tool, called LORD (Leading Optimised Runway Delivery) and methods for spacing aircraft by time during strong headwinds conditions, instead of applying distance separations, but also applying pair-wise wake separations. The video below presents the LORD tool and its integration with the different concepts.
