Abstract:

The status of civil airline implementation of all-weather landings, as summarized in the report, is based on information collected during the visit of an FAA Team to Europe during the latter half of October 1971. In France, Air Inter operates Caravelle aircraft with passengers to four airports in Category IIIa conditions with runway visual range as low as 150 meters and a 50-foot decision height. In the U.K., British European Airlines are implementing Category IIIa operations with Trident aircraft. Development details, operational procedures and equipment characteristics are described.
