Turbulence Tests For Aircraft Separation

Aircraft separation distances could be affected by a new study at Changi airport in Singapore.

<p>Aircraft separation distances could be affected by a new study at Changi airport in Singapore.<p>The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) are to investigate wake turbulence behind aircraft using laser imaging detection and ranging technology (LIDAR). They will also review air traffic control working procedures.<p>Their hope is that the data could eventually be used to justify a reduction in minimum separation distances, thereby increasing runway capacities around the world.</p>
