Digital Aerodrome Manual

With the entry into force of the Certification Specifications (CS) and Guidance Material (GM) for Aerodromes Design CS-ADR-DSN by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on 6 March 2014, a uniform European directive based on ICAO Annex 14 was implemented. On the basis of Regulation (EU) 139/2014, regulations are available which provide common standards for the planning, operation and maintenance of safe airports. 

Part of the certification is the Aerodrome Manual, which contains all necessary information and links to further documents. GfL has developed the software Digital Aerodrome Manual (DAM), which provides a digital version of the aerodrome manual with a suitable structure and filter function as well as a document management of all linked documents (including version control). The DAM can be integrated as a module in the Airport Conformance Monitor (ACM) or operated as an independent application.
