ADME 2.0 Definitions relating to Converging Runway Operations (CROPS) and Land And Hold Short Operations (LAHSO)

 

ELEMENT DEFINITION
Converging Runway Operations: Converging Runway Operations (CROPS) is the use of converging, but not necessarily intersecting, runways for take-off and/or landing.
Land And Hold Short Operations: Land And Hold Short Operations (LAHSO) is an operation that has an Air Traffic Control (ATC) requirement for a landing aircraft to stop short of the full length of the runway.
Simultaneous Intersecting Runway Operations: The simultaneous use of intersecting runways for take-off and/or landing.
Dependent runway operation: In relation to LAHSO/CROPS, a dependent runway operation is when a clearance or instruction to a landing or departing aircraft is conditional on an action of another aircraft or vehicle.
Independent runway operation: In relation to LAHSO/CROPS, an independent runway operation is when a clearance or instruction to a landing or departing aircraft is not conditional on an action of another aircraft or vehicle.
Avoidance Procedure: In relation to LAHSO/CROPS, an Avoidance Procedure is a designed procedure to prevent aircraft collision but does not necessarily use an air traffic control (ATC) separation standard.
Note: The Avoidance Procedure must demonstrate the required safety established by safety analysis and then be formally approved for use.
Missed Approach: A “Missed Approach” is an instrument-based procedure that a pilot has to follow after initiating a go-around at or above the Decision Height or Minimum Descent Height.
Rejected Landing: A “Rejected” or “Baulked Landing” is a manoeuvre where the pilot, after having passed the minimum of an IFR approach, aborts the landing and initiates a go-around, or is asked by ATC to go around.
