Movement area surface condition reporting

On 18 February 2021, the CAA issued Supplementary Instructions (SIs) to the MATS Part 1 (CAP 493), the FISO Manual (CAP 797) and the Radiotelephony Manual (CAP 413) relating to the implementation of ICAO’s Global Reporting Format methodology for assessing and reporting surface conditions on the aerodrome movement area.

Industry feedback on these SIs has prompted the CAA to review and revise these SIs in order to simplify some of the content.  It is important to note that in revising these SIs, no changes have been made to the requirements placed upon ATS providers.
