AO-0303 — Time Based Separation for Final Approach - full concept

The application of time based wake turbulence radar separation rules on final approach (TBS) provides a consistent time spacing between arriving aircraft in order to maintain runway approach capacity independently of any headwind component. The approach controller and the Tower runway controller are to be provided with the necessary TBS tool support to enable consistent and accurate delivery to the TBS rules on final approach. The minimum radar separation and runway related spacing constraints will be required to be respected when applying the TBS rules.

Rationale
The objective is to recover the reduction in the achieved arrival capacity currently experienced in headwind conditions when applying the current distance based wake turbulence radar separation rules on final approach, with a positive effect on runway throughput and runway queuing related delays. The minimum radar separation will constrain the recovery of the reduction in the achieved arrival capacity for spacing minimum pairs.
