FEASIBILITY OF A SEPARATE SHORT RUNWAY FOR COMMUTER AND GENERAL AVIATION TRAFFIC AT DENVER

An analysis is made of the feasibility of a short, separate runway for general aviation at Denver's Stapleton International Airport and how it may be facilitated by FAA Engineering and Development products. General aviation is defined as private, corporate, and fixed base operators (flight schools and air taxis), and commuter airlines. The analysis is for Instrument Meteorological Conditions using current ATC procedures and consists of: runway placement, obstacle clearance, location of navigational aids, airspace design to segregate aircraft by type to two separate parallel runways, and the design of taxi patterns to allow unimpeded movement of ground traffic. Details of ILS siting such as terrain and multipath problems are not addressed. (Author)
