2.9.1  VISUAL DOCKING GUIDANCE SYSTEM--SAFEDOCK

Installed at Parking Bay NR 4 to 11.

1. Description of System
  1. SAFEDOCK is based on a laser scanning technique and it tracks both the lateral and longitudinal position of the aircraft.

  2. All necessary information, such as azimuth guidance, distance to stop line, aircraft type etc., is shown on a LED display that is clearly visible for both pilot and co-pilot.

  3. SAFEDOCK is a fully automatic aircraft docking guidance system. When any of the following messages is displayed, pilot should stop the aircraft immediately if there is no manual guidance while problem exists.

    1. "STOP ID FAIL" (aircraft verification fails)

    2. "WAIT GATE BLOCK" (an object is found blocking the view from the Docking Guidance System to the planned stop position for the aircraft)

    3. "WAIT VIEW BLOCK" (the view towards the approaching aircraft is hindered for instance by unverified object)

    4. "STOP SBU" (a safety back-up must be used for docking guidance)

    5. "ERROR" (a system error occurs)

    6. "STOP TOO FAST" (the speed of the approaching aircraft is higher than the docking system can handle)

    7. The display goes black due to system breakdown or power failure during the docking process


2. Docking Procedures
a. Check the correct aircraft type is displayed. Follow the lead-in line.

b. When the aircraft has been caught by the laser, the flashing arrow is replaced by the yellow centre line indicator. A flashing red arrow indicates which direction to turn while the vertical yellow arrow shows how far the aircraft is off the centre line. Take the figure for example, the aircraft is at the far left side of the centre line.

c. Display of digital countdown will start when the aircraft is 30M from stop line. When the aircraft is less than 12M from the stop line, the closing rate is indicated by turning off one row of the centre line symbol. Thus, when the last rows turned off, 0.5M remains to stop line.

d. The absence of any direction arrow indicates the aircraft is on the centre line. Aircraft shall go forward toward stop line. Take the figure for example, the aircraft is 8M from the stop line.

e. If the aircraft is approaching faster than the accepted speed, the system will show "SLOW" as a warning to the pilot.

f. When the correct stopped position is reached, the display will show "STOP" and red lights will be lit. Also, when the emergency stop button is pressed, "STOP" is displayed.

g. When the aircraft has parked, "OK" will be displayed.

h. "CHOCK ON" will be displayed when the ground staff has put the chocks in front of the nose wheel and pressed the "Chock on" button on the Operator Panel.

3. Fault Messages and Safety Procedures
a. If the aircraft has overshot the stop line, "TOO FAR" will be displayed.

b. The display will show "SLOW" if the aircraft is lost during docking or visibility for Docking Guidance System is reduced. The pilot must not proceed beyond the bridge, unless the closing rate bar is shown.

c. If the aircraft approaches with a speed higher than the docking system can handle, the message "STOP" and "TOO FAST" will be displayed together with red squares. The docking system must be re-started or the docking procedure completed by manual guidance.

d. If aircraft verification is not made before stop position, the display will show "STOP" and "ID FAIL".

RCSS AD 2.20  LOCAL TRAFFIC REGULATIONS

2.20.1   Airport regulations
  1. Aircraft ground maneuvering restrictions

    1. Aircraft are not permitted to make a "U" turn when they deviate or taxi over the assigned parking bay. In this case, pilots are required to shut down or idle engines and inform tower to send tow tractor.

    2. Using high power on a running engine to start other engines is not permitted on the apron. However in special cases, bleed starts will be permitted after towing to a position parallel to the assigned taxiway, and after approval from flight operation section of airport office and as directed by tower. The above must be conducted in such a manner that other aircraft movements are not affected.

    3. Intersection take-off from TWY CC to the active runway are prohibited.

    4. Intersection take-off: civil propeller aircraft may request or ATC may initiate intersection take-off from E1, EH or WH taxiway.

    5. For taxiing to the runway in use it is advisable to push aircraft at an angle of about 45 degree while they are pushed back.

    6. EMAS (Engineering Material Arresting System) is sufficient to stop aircraft type AIRBUS A333 exiting a runway at 70 knots or less. However, according to ’Procedure of Songshan Airport Removal Operations For Damaged Aircraft’ , airlines should pay all the related charges for using and restoring EMAS.

    7. Because of the configuration of the runway and taxiways, there are 2 locations where civil aircraft often miss and then taxi on to military apron while ATC assign the taxiing route. These locations are listed below as Hot Spots, where heightened attention by pilots is necessary

      1. Exiting runway 10 onto taxiway E1, civil aircraft shall turn right to taxiway E. Do not taxi straight ahead onto taxiway A and military apron.

      2. Exiting runway 10 onto taxiway EH, civil aircraft shall pay attention to the taxiing route. Do not taxi straight ahead onto taxiway D and military apron.

    8. Arrival aircraft, except for military aircraft, with wingspan 36M or greater shall not vacate runway via taxiway E1 when runway 10 in use.

  2. Local flying restrictions

    1. Curfew period: 1500-2200 UTC daily. Except for emergency, take-off or landings of civil aircraft are prohibited.

    2. The runway-in-use will not necessarily be aligned with the wind when wind velocity is 10 knots or less. Aircraft unable to comply with this restriction shall so advise ATC.

    3. Right traffic for runway 10.

    4. Except emergency, aircraft are prohibited from operating into stopway of runway 10.

    5. Unless otherwise approved, aircraft are prohibited from operating in restricted area RCR16. See ENR 5.1.

    6. Songshan airport is designated as a special airport due to terrain and obstacles. To ensure flight safety, the minimum climb gradient of each departure published in AIP shall be strictly adhered when taking off from this airport.

    7. Visual approach, special VFR and traffic pattern operations are prohibited for fix-wings aircraft.

    8. When airport weather conditions below VMC with a ceiling not less than 900FT and a ground visibility not less than 1500M, an aircraft may request to operate as a special VFR flight in Songshan Class C Airspace with ATC unit approval.

2.20.2  Taxiing to and from stand
  1. The Start-up, Push-back and taxiing Maneuver for Civil Aircraft Departing from Taipei/Songshan Airport

    1. Aircraft shall not commence start-up or push-back maneuver unless approved by ATC.

    2. Aircraft are to call " Songshan Delivery" or "Songshan Ground" as appropriate, five minutes before start-up to request start-up and ATC clearance.

      1. Between 2300 and 0900 UTC: Songshan Delivery on 121.2MHZ or Songshan Ground on 121.9MHZ.

      2. During other time: Songshan Ground on 121.9MHZ.

        Aircraft shall state their call sign, parking position and flight plan related information to request for start-up clearance.

    3. When situations require the departing aircraft to hold for five minutes or more, ATC will advise them of the start-up time or expected start-up time.

    4. To facilitate ATC planning on aerodrome operations, aircraft shall be ready to push-back or taxi within five minutes after receiving start-up clearance. Otherwise aircraft shall advise ATC and repeat the previous procedures.

    5. To facilitate taxi operation, aircraft upon receiving push-back and taxi clearance, shall operate accordingly without delay. Otherwise, ATC may rearrange the departure sequence.

2.20.3   Low Visibility Procedures at Taipei/Songshan (For pilots' attention):
  1. Pilots are expected to note the followings when taxiing during low visibility:

    1. Pilots and aircraft operators shall constantly be aware that during low visibility conditions the movement of aircraft and vehicles on airport may not be visible to the tower controller. This may prevent visual confirmation of an aircraft's adherence to taxiing instructions. Pilots should, therefore, exercise extreme vigilance and proceed cautiously under such conditions.

    2. When visual difficulties are encountered, or at the first indication of becoming disoriented, pilots should immediately inform the controller.

  2. The weather criteria for the Low Visibility Procedure: RVR is at or below 800M

    1. Stage-one Low Visibility Procedures: RVR is at or below 800M

      1. ATIS broadcasts " Low Visibility Procedure in effect."

      2. Airport FOS shall notify related Airlines and ground service unit (FOLLOW ME).

      3. Tower shall, in accordance with Air Traffic Management Procedure, issue progressive taxiing instructions to aircraft when necessary or request the pilot to taxi by standard taxiing routes (see attached chart for routes and compulsory reporting positions).

      4. Aircraft taxiing guidance FOLLOW ME is at pilot's request.

      5. While guided by the FOLLOW ME, if any doubt arises, pilot shall stop taxiing and contact tower immediately and report the situations.

    2. Stage-two Low Visibility Procedures: RVR is below 550M

      1. Procedures are in effect as Stage-one Low Visibility Procedures.

      2. Only one aircraft is allowed to operate on maneuvering area.
