Introduction of a B-CDA trial at Manchester Airport

All 2005 reports


This study seeks to improve the understanding of attitudes to change in ATM. It attempts to delineate the barriers to, and drivers of, such change, within the societal context. For example: how directly and how intensely do ATC personnel and pilots feel community pressure and through what processes? The study is generic in its approach and will be based on a number of case studies. The need is identified to assess attitude to change at both the organisational and individual levels, for both macro-level and micro-level objectives. This Report details the methodology and presents the results of the first case study - the introduction of a night-time basic continuous descent approach trial at Manchester Airport.
