Safety study for the accommodation of wide-body aircraft for Bordeaux-Merignac International Airport
ADPI has been entrusted with a specific safety study for the admissibility of aircraft on secondary runway 11/29.
Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport, as part of a major multi-year program (2007-2011), has decided to review its aeronautical infrastructure and in particular the repair of the main runway 05/23 during the summer of 2011.
For the duration of this work (8 calendar weeks), the large carriers usually accommodated on main runway 05/23 used runway 11/29.
The safety study carried out by ADPI included two aspects: lift of the runway and geometry of the runway, based on the following aspects:
- an analysis, for each of the devices considered, of the reception capacity in the ACN / PCN sense of runway 11/29, with its suggestions in terms of risk mitigation measures,
- an analysis of the carrying capacity of the associated routes (Golf, Sierra 4 and Fox), with its suggestions in terms of risk mitigation measures,
- an analysis of the possibility of turning to racket 11, with its suggestions in terms of risk mitigation measures.
