Runway Analysis (ATLAS) Report Format Is Changing July 11th, 2017

May 12, 2017 - On July 11th, 2017, APG will begin changes for most ATLAS programs. This update includes a transition to the same calculation methods and data files used by our iPad application, iPreFlight. While this switchover requires no direct action for customers, we are providing 60 days notice to allow for operators to update training materials and necessary operational documentation to accommodate this change.

There are a few key items that customers should be aware of:

  1. Report Format Changes
  2. Maximum Allowable Weight Changes
  3. Applicable Aircraft Types

Report Format Changes

Included in this transition to our latest systems is an updated appearance of the reports. An example report can be downloaded here. While this report is for a Global 5000, the report format will be the same for all aircraft types affected by this change. You can also download an updated Introduction Page to the new report format here.

For customers already using the updated ATLAS system, the new report format presented is slightly different than the report you have been receiving.

For these customers, your ATLAS report format will be updated on July 11th as well. The purpose for this update is to remove the V-Speeds from the report format as the speeds are only applicable to the maximum weight shown. Additionally, this change allows data for four runways to appear on one page. In the case where APG determines an optimized V1, that speed will continue to be shown in the report.

Maximum Allowable Weight Changes

The new calculation methods include enhanced iteration routines when searching for maximum weights, obstacle clearance, V1 and level off heights.

Additionally, the aircraft data files used by this new calculation engine have been digitized in an updated format using improved tracing software. Variances in maximum allowable weight due to improved tracing methods of the data files are negligible.

Applicable Aircraft Types

Below is a list of aircraft types that will be converted on July 11th. Aircraft currently supported by our older ATLAS system that are not listed below will be converted to the new format as we are able to update them to the new system. As these aircraft become available, we will be providing 30 days’ notice to those customers whose aircraft are ready for conversion to the new system. Please be prepared for the conversion when it becomes available.
