Rapid automation in aviation safety

Satellite-based radar systems with GPS to map flights across oceans soon

Within a year or so, satellite-based and radar-based systems are to be introduced across the world which will even map oceans with the help of Global Positioning System (GPS) and with modern aircraft carrying a transponder to transmit regular messages of its location, informed Director of Hyderabad Airports G.S. Rao on Monday.

Addressing a gathering at the Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel (ATSEP) International Day celebrations at Begumpet airport, he said the changes in the Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) systems are happening at a rapid pace with automation and integration.

Yet there is space for the human intervention for some time to come, he observed.

Apart from Air Traffic Controllers, pilots and maintenance engineers, ATSEPs contribute towards a safe flight from ‘gate’ of one airport to another airport ‘gate’. These technical specialists provide electronics and software support playing a vital role in the aviation safety chain in specification, procurement, installation, calibration, maintenance, testing and certification of ground electronic systems to help control aircraft movements.

The Director said the shift from the totally ground-based air navigation radar systems and from voice based communication to data based communication is happening rapidly, hence it is imperative for skills to be continuously upgraded for the technical personnel.

While the country is on a par with international standards in terms of CNS, the concept of a ‘single sky’ as is being planned for Europe where the regional centres need would be redundant but this is not yet on the policy plan here. Similarly, the concept of ‘virtual’ radar towers in operation in some places abroad is yet to be taken up.

Speakers also explained that the Indian airspace is over 2.8 million square nautical miles assigned by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) with peak hours having up to 60 planes an hour although Delhi has registered 82 planes an hour! It means 1,440 aircraft are operating each day and growth rate of aviation in the Asia-Pacific region is in double digits increasing the burden of airports and the CNS personnel.

Airports Authority of India GM O.S. Ekka, DGCA S. Toppo, Air India GM Solomon Jeyabalan, DGM N.S. Chakravarthy, IMD in-charge Director (Hyd) Y.K. Reddy, also spoke at the function.

Wild boar enters runway of Vizag airport, gets hit by Indigo flight

Passengers on board the Hyderabad-bound IndiGo flight at the Visakhapatnam airport had a close shave after a wild boar strayed onto the runway and was hit by the airplane. The flight, 6E-742, had around 150 passengers and crew members at the time of the accident.

The incident took place as the plane was taking off. IndiGo airlines said that the pilot had noticed the boar but had no option but to hit the animal and take off.

After taking off, the pilot realised that the landing gear of the flight, failed to retract. Following this, he spent fuel hovering above the city, before he landed back at the Visakhapatnam airport.

The tyres were then cleaned on the ground, and the plane took off again for Hyderabad, at 1:00am.

“Flight 6E-742 from Vishakhapatnam to Hyderabad hit a wild boar on the runway during take-off. The captain immediately reported the matter to ATC and decided to hold over Vizag. After runway inspection, the pilot carried out a precautionary landing at Vizag airport after 45 minutes for necessary inspection,” an IndiGo statement said.
