New EoR separation standard at YYC

NAV CANADA just became the first ANSP in the world to implement a new ICAO standard: Established on RNP-AR (EoR).

The new separation standard, implemented at Calgary International Airport (YYC), safely enables simultaneous arrivals on parallel runways, improves how traffic is integrated and increases use of quieter continuous descent operations.

As a result of the new standard, aircraft cleared on RNP-AR approach procedures to parallel runways will be able to safely land simultaneously without requiring a separation minimum of 1,000 feet vertically or three nautical miles laterally, which the current conventional standard requires until the aircraft is lined up with the runway, or, “Established on final.”

“EoR is a major leap forward in terms of how we manage and integrate traffic and offers significant potential for our major airports,” says Blake Cushnie, National Manager, Performance Based Operations. “The standard builds on the benefits inherent in RNP-AR navigation technologies such as shorter flight paths and flying times ? reducing fuel burn, greenhouse gas emissions and noise.”

Hey Smythe, with 17.34 million passengers and 244,027 aircraft movements in 2017, Calgary International (CYYC) is the busiest airport in the Canadian Province of Alberta and the fourth-busiest in Canada by both measures. Works out to an average of 27 aircraft movements per hour. 27 aircraft movements per 60 minutes is not a realistic workload stat, but it does prove there are more than two aircraft in Canada, let alone in the entire province of Alberta.

Parallel runway landings ops is a good thing.

Passengers at Toronto (CYYZ), Vancouver (CYVR), Montreal (CYUL), and Calgary (CYYC) may benefit from NAVCANADA's new parallel simultaneous runway procedures. Edmonton (CYEG), does not have parallel runways.

Here is a list of the top five Canadian airports by passenger traffic (in millions) in 2018:

1Toronto Pearson International Airport
Greater Toronto 49,507,418
[2]5.0%2Vancouver International Airport
Metro Vancouver 25,936,907
[3]7.3%3Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport
Greater Montreal 19,425,488
[4]6.9%4Calgary International Airport
Calgary Region 17,343,402
[5]6.6%5Edmonton International Airport
Edmonton Metropolitan Region 8,254,121[6]5.8%

In the first fiscal quarter of 2019, Edmonton (CYEG) actually suffered an overall four-year drop of oil industry related air traffic due to anti-oil, anti-pipeline, anti-bitumen "green environmentalism" .

Passengers do indeed pay NAVCANADA fees.
