To provide participants with Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes to monitor rubber deposits on runways and apply appropriate removal methodology to obtain requisite friction level.
Upon successful completion of the course, the participants will be able to:
Initiate suitable NOTAM action to measure friction value of runway surface and for runway rubber removal
Identify causes of reduction in friction value of runway surface and its effect on aircraft movement on active runway
Appreciate importance of maintaining requisite friction value on runways
Measure runway friction value with the help of friction tester
Measure runway friction value when no friction tester is available.
Identify the low-friction areas
Apply appropriate rubber deposit removal method considering the runway surface material and extent of deposits
Module 0: Introduction
Module 1: Initiate NOTAM Action
Module 2: Measure Friction Values of Runway Surface
Module 3: Remove Rubber
