Inspection, Maintenance & Repair Training – IM&R
Runway Safe provides training classes for your airport personnel to increase the knowledge and know-how on how to do a proper Inspection of the entire bed and how to do Maintenance and Repairs to the greenEMAS bed.
Since the EMAS is still considered to be a “new” technology, it is likely not everyone is fully aware of the product and its´ important safety function. Therefore, it may be necessary to inform airport personnel (maintenance, operations, firefighting, etc.) of the existence of the greenEMAS, so plans such as those required under the Airport Certification Manual can be updated if necessary.
It is recommended that you provide refresher IM&R training to your personnel on regular basis, e.g., every 3 years. By doing this on regular basis you will maintain local knowledge of all procedures associated with maintenance and inspections of the greenEMAS by utilizing the combined experience of the Runway Safe team.
“Runway Safe will be there to support you and your greenEMAS.”
Inspection Service for your greenEMAS
Runway Safe provides Inspection services for your greenEMAS. We offer, bi-annual and extra Inspections. Extra Inspections may be required after an unexpected event such as flooding, earthquake or other events of force majeure character. Whatever the reason might be – we will be there to assist you with our post installation Inspection services.
The value of retaining Runway Safe to provide additional inspections for your EMAS bed is having an experienced examination of the entire system. A Runway Safe inspector has the advantage of applying the experience gained from inspecting numerous greenEMAS systems covering a range of environments and ages.
Various climate elements expose your systems to many different possible issues. Runway Safe’s extensive experience gives us the ability to identify and report potential issues at their earliest stages suggest any preventive measures.
Verification of Fleet
Performance – VFP
Runway Safe provides Verification of Fleet Performance (VFP) in case the fleet mix of your airport has changed since the installation of the greenEMAS system, or if you are considering new routes/destinations to and from your airport and therefore new aircraft may start to use your airport.
Runway Safe will take the updated fleet mix and run it through our FAA approved performance model to learn what the predicted performance will be for all (old and new) aircraft using the runway. Just like when Runway Safe originally modeled the runway we will need information about the complete fleet mix, the aircraft weight (maximum take-off weight as well as maximum landing weight), length of the runway safety area (RSA/RESA) and the profile of the runway.
With this information Runway Safe will run our predicted performance model and jet blast analysis process to learn what the performance and jet blast impact of each aircraft will be. We will then provide a short report outlining our findings and potential concerns we may see.
Service Agreements for greenEMAS
Runway Safe provide Service Agreements for your installed greenEMAS system. We can provide the necessary inspection services, oversight, tests and training, together with EMAS specific materials and equipment to inspect and maintain your greenEMAS bed.
The Service Agreement can include a number of services during the agreement, for example frequent inspections. We also have other services such as “Inspection, Maintenance & Repair Training” and “Verification of Fleet Performance”.
With decades of experience in maintaining EMAS systems, we know that every airport is unique and that is why Runway Safe offer tailormade Service Agreements – that would suite your airport and your EMAS system the best.
