SESAR-Validation "Follow-the-Greens" (in German)
SEAC (SESAR European Airport Consortium, a member of the SESAR Joint Undertaking) has successfully validated “Follow-the-Greens“, an innovative and performance enhancing guidance method for aircraft movements on airport taxiways.The validation was executed on the basis of the layout and traffic characteristics of Munich Airport. Scenarios included runs in good weather as well as low visibility conditions, different traffic loads and remote ground control. With individual guidance, aircraft need to stop much less often. The shorter instructions reduce the length of radio and also reduce the controller’s workload.
