In Focus | Accommodate larger aircraft at existing airport infrastructure
ACCOMMODATE LARGER AIRCRAFT AT EXISTING AIRPORT INFRASTRUCTURE
While commercial aircraft are becoming wider and longer, airport operators struggle for accommodating them at their existing facilities. Indeed, they were often initially designed for the previous generations of airliners (e.g. Boeing 747-100). Join us for an update on the newest aircraft types and their challenges, on the applicable regulatory requirements, and on the flexibility offered by the standards and regulations.
Gaël Le Bris will explain through case studies how we can fit modern, large aircraft (e.g. A380, 777-9) at airport infrastructure initially designed for smaller, older airliners (e.g. 747-100) – with the CAD software solution AviPLAN and the unique WSP expertise. The focus will be on aircraft parking stands and their complex environment.
