New working group: WG-109 / Runway Weather Information SystemsWe are pleased to inform you that EUROCAE WG-109 "Runway Weather Information Systems" has been created.
Internationally, operating regulations on runway surface contamination are primarily set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), particularly through Annexes 6, 14 and 15 of the Convention on the International Civil Aviation. The said annexes set out recommendations on the information to be given to the flight crew on the type and thickness of contaminants present on runway surfaces. In line with the approved Terms of Reference (ToR), to define the performances expected from the systems and the way of verifying that the latter reach them, WG-109 is tasked to develop Minimum Aviation System Performance Standards (MASPS) for Runway Weather Information Systems.
