The Methodology for Evaluating the Safety of Operations at the Uncontrolled Aerodromes

Vladimír Plos, Jakub Kraus, Peter Vittek, Tomáš Duša


The objective of this methodology is to determine the general procedure for the evaluation of safety indicators for operation at uncontrolled aerodromes. The basis of this assessment is to determine the processes that take place at the aerodrome and finding critical points in these processes. They are determined on the basis of observations at aerodromes and are based on current legislation. The result of applying this methodology to aerodrome operations is the identification of several indicators, which monitoring and the adoption of safety measures can enhance safety at these uncontrolled aerodromes in the Czech Republic.
