In 2017, following the results of the analysis of a sample of A- and B-severity incidents, which had occurred in the terminal control areas (TMAs) and control zones (CTRs) around airports in EUROCONTROL Member States in the period 2014-2016, the EUROCONTROL Safety Improvement Sub-Group (SISG) concluded that two new problems needed to be examined with a view to making an operational safety studies:
- conflicts on or following low-level go-arounds and
- IFR and VFR conflicts in airspace classes E and D.
The purpose of this report is twofold, namely:
- to document the Operational Safety Study on one of the EUROCONTROL Network Manager operational safety priorities for 2018 (i.e. “conflicts on or following low-level go-arounds”) and
- to serve as a reference for the network actors if they undertake operational safety analysis and improvement activities regarding the risk related to conflicts on or following low-level go-arounds.
