Thus, we have determined the ASV to be 645,000 operations. When the peak spread slightly, ASV is expected to increase, which would lead to an ASV of 703,000 under the long term planning period. When the operations are adjusted in the year 2025, we obtain a total 351,500 operations. Thus, currently the airport is at 55% of its ASV. The long range adjusted annual operations are forecasted to reach 648,400 operations, which is almost 92% of airport ASV. RECOMMENDATIONS Currently we can see that the operations are 55% of annual service volume of the airfield. As forecasted, this is expected to increase to 92%. Among the other things, airport can follow the below: a. Improvise runways and ensure proper safety. By proper safety we mean that the area should be free of any ruts, humps, depressions etc. b. Improvements in lightings, markings and signage throughout the airport. c. Outfit the off airport emergency responders with state of the art communication equipment’s. d. Planning helicopter deconfliction e. Planning fixed wing operations f. Create bigger aircraft run – up areas. g. Proper Airport Access h. General Aviation Automobile Parking In addition to the above, there can be provision of precise runway marking on both runways. The basic taxiway marking would be adequate and should therefore be applied to all new taxiways. If the runway 7R – 25L acquires CAT I approach in future, precise runway marking would need to be implemented. The airport should also have a lighted wind cone and a segmented circle. This helps the pilot judge information on wind conditions and the airport traffic pattern. Also, an airport beacon can be made. This would help in identification of airport through the air during night. Each of the above facilities should be implemented in the future.
