Validation Report for AIRE 3 CANARIAS project
Demonstration Report for the CANARIAS Project, highlighting the purpose and execution of the demonstrations exercises, assessment and methodology of collected data, and the obtained results. A handful of the targeted number of demonstration flights was achieved, however providing proof-of-concept design and operational solutions at the terrain-challenged airports of Lanzarote (GCRR) and La Palma (GCLA) airports. The results of the project highlight imminent need in the short-term to implement RNP-AR procedures at both airports for accessibility, approach stability, trajectory repeatability, obstacle protection, and safety enhancement. Operators and Air Traffic Controllers trained for the demonstration flights confirmed that the specific design of the STARs and above all the Approaches at both airports match what is needed within their respective environment.
