Details

Information about the contents of the reports contained on this page.

Operational efficiency: ground risk analysis

A review of the implications of each scheme for the overall level of risk of an accident involving an aircraft on approach to or departure from an expanded airport.

Operational efficiency: fast time airspace simulation

The results of a computer simulation exercise conducted to determine whether it was plausible that airspace structures could support the levels of traffic anticipated for each scheme and what the implications of doing so would be for other airports in the London system.

Operational efficiency: phasing and facilities review

A review of the capacity estimates associated with each scheme following responses to the national consultation and an exploration of options for changing the phasing or reducing the scope of the delivery of passenger facilities.
