✈Gradnja brze izlazne rulnice “D”

Nakon što je završeno proširenje zgrade terminala aerodroma Sarajevo, slijedeća faza u širenju kapaciteta aerodroma je gradnja brze izlazne rulnice “D”.

Brza izlazna rulnica je vozna staza povezana sa uzletno-sletnom stazom pod oštrim uglom i oblikovana tako da avionu tokom napuštanja piste nakon slijetanja omogući skretanje pri većim brzinama od onih koje se mogu postići na već postojećim rulnicama aerodroma Sarajevo.

Idejnim projektom proširenja manevarskih površina aerodroma Sarajevo odobrenim Master planom planirana je izgradnja rulnica kojima će se obezbjediti fleksibilnost u obavljanju operacija, obezbjediti brza evakuacija aviona sa piste nakon slijetanja, skratiti period zauzetosti platforme, obezbjediti korištenje rulnice “A” za izlazak aviona na holding poziciju istovremeno sa slijetanjem, te mimoilaženje u zoni između brze izlazne rulnice i kraja piste 29.



Sa završetkom radova brze izlazne rulnice “D” omogućit će se da nakon slijetanja, avioni brže napuštaju uzletno-sletnu stazu, stvarajući predpostavke za veći broj avio operacija i samim tim povećavajući kapacitet aerodroma.

IPSA Institut Sarajevo je pružio uslugu izrade idejnog i glavnog projekta brze izlazne rulnice “D” Međunarodnog Aerodroma Sarajevo, i vodi se kao jedan od najuspješnijih projekata IPSA Institut-a koji se implementira korištenjem softvera CGS Labs. Gradnji brze rulnice “D” bi se trebalo pristupiti tokom slijedeće godine.
