ANGOLA HUAMBO AIRPORT - AIRPORT MASTER PLAN

Areas of Expertise: Airport Master Planning

Country: Africa: Angola

LEAPP developed a long range master plan for the Huambo Airport that included layout plans for all future airside and terminal requirements. As part of the study LEAPP undertook an assessment of the airport to determine its requirements and capability for upgrading to allow regional international traffic, and also accommodate long haul wide body aircraft diverted from Luanda.  LEAPP inspected the airport site and assessed the airside, terminal and ancillary facilities, navigation aids and communications.  Also investigated was the physical feasibility of extending the runway. 

BOTSWANA GABARONE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - NATIONAL AIRPORTS DEVELOPMENT & CIVIL AVIATION DEPARTMENT RESTRUCTURING

Areas of Expertise: Aviation Strategic Planning, Airport Development

Country: Africa: Botswana

Under Technical Assistance funding by ICAO / UNDP, LEAPP carried out a comprehensive review of the responsibilities, legal basis, functions, staffing, management, financial operations and management control systems of the Department of Civil Aviation. Inspections were undertaken of all civil aviation infrastructure owned and operated by the DCA throughout the country (airports, air navigation and telecommunications facilities, ATC and AIS units).  From there, upgrading requirements and capital funding needs were determined and options for restructuring the Civil Aviation Department into a parastatal Authority, separated from government were also developed.  The project defined all required regulatory and operational functions and responsibilities to ensure compliance with ICAO Annexes, staffing levels and grades, training programmes and implementation schedules. Analysis of the financial performance was undertaken, along with a review of rates and charges, and alternative financial control systems were proposed.  In addition, a representative operating and capital budgets were prepared for the new authority and submitted to government.

As part of a broad study of civil aviation development, LEAPP professionals inspected all Botswana's national airports to identify deficiencies and requirements. This led to the definition of a programme designed to upgrade the airports based on a functional classification system.

GHANA AVIATION AUTHORITY AND GHANA AIRPORTS COMPANY LIMITED INSTITUTIONAL RESTRUCTURING

Areas of Expertise: Aviation Strategic Planning

Country: Africa: Ghana

An initial restructuring of the Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) had been carried out in 2006 in order to separate the National Airports from the CASA and establish the management of the National Airports as a commercialised Company under the Companies Act.  However, concern that this had not gone far enough to meet ICAO’s requirements, led to the World Bank funding a review of the earlier restructuring with a view to progressing this through to an eventual solution that would meet with approval of ICAO. 

The project, carried out by LEAPP, reviewed the GCAA organisation that had emerged from the 2006 restructuring, identified the effects of this and any issues, problems, and deficiencies that required correction.  The project also examined the financial performance of the GCAA and the National Airports Company (GACL), as well as their functions, structures and staffing.  A need to further restructures the GCAA and GACL was identified, so that full separation of regulation and operations could be achieved.  Options for restructuring were identified and the GCAA, GACL and Ministry of Transport elected to adopt one of these models for implementation.  New organisational structures were developed for the civil aviation regulator (GCAA), for the GACL, and for a new Air Traffic and Air Navigation Authority to operate the ATS/ANS within Ghana as part of a collaborative West African ATS/ANS environment.  In all cases the required staffing and training for these organisations was defined, and the future financial performance of the three entities was analysed and projected to establish the financial viability of the organisations.  For the National Airports Company (GACL), a new function and subsidiary company was added to manage non-aeronautical revenue generation and operate an Airport City at Accra International Airport, and to become involved in collaborative commercial investments with the private sector.

GHANA ACCRA NEW INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - FEASIBILITY STUDY AND AIRPORT MASTER PLAN

Areas of Expertise: Airport Master Planning

Country: Africa: Ghana

LEAPP prepared a Feasibility Study and Airport Master Plan for a new International Airport for Accra, Ghana.  This involved an analysis of the potential for development of the new airport under a BOT arrangement for private sector financing.  Following the preparation of air traffic forecasts for passengers, cargo and aircraft movements; the requirements for airport infrastructure were determined to meet the forecast demand over a 20 year period.  The airport layout plan was produced to allow for long term development which included the reservation of land required for a second parallel runway.

LESOTHO KING MOSHOESHOE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - AVIATION PLANNING AND FLIGHT PROCEDURES DESIGN

Areas of Expertise: Air Navigation Planning

Country: Africa: Lesotho

LEAPP staff provided aviation planning services to a consortium of international consulting companies in the development of a new airport for Lesotho in Southern Africa.

Due to its location, surrounded by hills and mountains, instrument approach and departure guidance is particularly difficult, and the operation of radio frequency electronic aids to navigation is affected by signal interference and multipath distortions due to the sheer sides of the nearby mountains. The project resulted in the development of a workable solution to providing guidance for instrument operations into, and out of, the new airport, with the procedures critically dependent upon obtaining an acceptable integrity of RF signals from the non-precision instrument equipment specified for air navigation guidance by the consulting team.
