GIS Technology Applied on Obstacles Data Flight Operation: A Review of Initial Project of Kuksi Airport Opening
Abstract: Collection and maintenance of airport safety critical data is mandatory for certified airports. This paper is a review of the obstacle management process including obstacles data collection, 3D airport coverage areas, obstacle limitation surfaces, obstacles analysis and display of work load carried on prior setting up the new airport in Kuk?s, Albania. Terrain condition and obstacles are first essential priorities to take in consider when designing flight operation procedures. On the otherhand, the implementation of the eTOD requirements as stated by ICAO Annex 15 [ICAO International Civil Aviation Organization, Annex 15 ? Aeronautical Information Service https://www.icao.int] lead to significant challenge and requires the collection and survey of a relatively large amount of terrain and obstacle data. This Review paper describes main elements of initiating the new airport in Kuk?s. It recommends that obstacles should be periodically monitored for any feature change since they are essential and critical to flight operations. Every change should be reflected in Database and Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP). The paper concludes that the software ArcGIS Aviation is a very good tool to analyse, create, visualize and provide ETOD for the operational purposes.
