Upon successful completion of the course, the participants will be able to:

  •  Initiate suitable NOTAM action to measure friction value of runway surface / for runway rubber removal
  • Identify causes of reduction in friction value of runway surface and its effect on aircraft movement on active runway
  • Appreciate importance of maintaining requisite friction value on runways
  • Measure runway friction value with the help of friction tester
  • Measure runway friction value when no friction tester is available.
  • Identify the low-friction areas
  • Apply appropriate rubber deposit removal method considering the runway surface material and extent of deposits
