AERODROME CERTIFICATION IN JAMAICA

JAMAICA CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY


Aerodrome Certification

  • 14 Aerodrome SARPS are now the main reference

  • incorporated by reference in regulations

  • 16-Noise

  • 17-Security

  • associated manuals with Annexes


Aerodrome Certification

  • Existing Act mentions Annexes

  • Old regulations dealt with control of aircraft access

  • Old licensing system controlled where aircraft could have access

  • Safety regulations require aircraft to land at licensed aerodromes (access control)


Aerodrome Certification

  • In 1980 before control of aerodromes regulations there were 47 aerodromes in Jamaica

  • Today there are 15 left

  • There is demand to open more aerodromes

  • Act amendment is ready

  • New regulations have been prepared for certification


Aerodrome Certification

  • EXISTING

  • 2 international airports

  • 4 public aerodromes

  • 9 private aerodromes

  • numerous helicopter alighting areas/pads

  • DEMAND from gliders, ultra-lights, improved access to parishes, redevelop abandoned WW-2 military aerodrome for cargo


Glider and Ultralight aerodrome


Aerodrome Certification

  • Established formal process

  • Pre-application

    • discussion with JCAA

    • JCAA provides guidelines and forms

    • applicant to obtain land use approvals

    • if applicant does not, JCAA informs land use authorities and invites applicant to discussion

    • land use authorities object: no certificate issued


Aerodrome Certification

  • Application Process (60 days if possible)

    • forms submitted, inspector assigned

    • site inspection, results communicated

    • certificate issued if standards met, deviations approved, operations manual approved

    • Certificate valid for one year

    • Interim certificate if special circumstances

    • Procedures for certificate amendment, suspension and surrender


Aerodrome Certification

  • Contingency Plans

    • bomb threat

    • hijack

    • fire

    • crash

    • Emergency Plans

    • hurricane

    • earthquake

    • flood

    • strike


Aerodrome Certification

  • PROGRESS

    • 2 internationals have operations manuals

    • active inspection program in place

    • certification now a growth industry

    • training of aerodrome staff

    • MOU with ATC, Security forces, emergency health facilities, weather service, ANS


Demand for development hampered by terrain


Expan-sion options are Limited


But we did it anyway


Aerodrome Certification

  • Act was amended

  • New regulations were developed

  • Guidance material was developed

  • 3 contract inspectors had Annex 14 experience

  • 2 local inspectors trained in security

  • need to train local inspectors in Annex 14


Aerodrome Certification

  • NEW REGULATIONS

    • registered aerodromes

    • certified must meet Annex 14

    • registered should meet Annex 14


Aerodrome Certification

  • NEW REGULATIONS

    • international airports and those served by scheduled air operators using aircraft with over 10 seats require certification, CAA may deem it necessary at any other

    • all aerodromes may be registered

    • no air operator may use an unregistered aerodrome

    • where standards cannot be met an aeronautical study should establish an equivalent level of safety


Aerodrome Certification

  • NEW CHALLENGES

    • privatization

    • economic regulation of aerodromes

    • new large aircraft

    • enhanced security requirements

    • increasing environmental awareness

    • urbanization and encroachment


Aerodrome Certification

  • CHALLENGES

    • terrain, building materials, equipment

    • drainage

    • environmental

    • access versus control

    • fleet changes

    • limited resources

    • standards changes


Larger Aircraft


Urban encroachment


Abandoned WW2 Aerodrome to be redeveloped for Cargo and Maintenance


Agricultural encroachment
