6 Sep 2019 Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) Benefits Prove Hard to Ignore

New Southern Sky Study Suggests Big Benefits to be Realised by A-CDM

A study commissioned by NSS has produced some encouraging information on the benefits that may be harvested from the deployment of  Airport Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) at major NZ Airports. The study suggests that more than double the benefits being delivered by PBN nationally may be available from A-CDM. 

Scott Earley, the NSS Programme Coordinator who managed the study, reports that the aim and objectives were to identify both metrics and benefits to allow the benefits of airport investment in A-CDM to be realised at a national level. 

Scott also pointed out that the study was academic in nature and that real world considerations would naturally influence outcomes.  ‘Nevertheless’ said Scott ‘we have briefed Airways, BARNZ, AIAL, WIAL and the NSS Working Group.  All agree that the potential benefits are significant and are there to be harvested’.
