|Distance Based Separation with Tools & RECAT||Improved consistency of approach spacing + simplified RECAT||YES||YES (going from current 4 ICAO WV Categories RECAT 6 category)
= +2-3 landings/hour
|Time Based Separation
(With Optimised Runway Delivery)
|Resilience to Headwinds & operational & safety improvements||YES
Average recovery +3.6/hour in strong winds (max c.+6)
|YES Heathrow is already 6 Cat but will see +1.8/hour average in all wind conditions (airports at ICAO 4 WV Cat may see + c.3-4/hour)|
|Time Based Separation with Pairwise||Significant capacity gain in all wind conditions||YES||YES Heathrow would see extra
|Optimised Runway Utilisation for Mixed Mode||Capacity & resilience gains for mixed mode runways||YES||YES +2-3 landings/hr based on
