RavnAir Alaska Creates New Waypoint to Improve Aviation Safety
Recently, Corvus Airlines d.b.a. RavnAir Alaska, a 121 Certificate holder, experienced an increase of TCAS Resolution Advisories (RAs) flying between Anchorage and Kenai. The primary concern for RavnAir was along the Victor 334-456 airway with northbound traffic before communications with Anchorage Approach are established.
To mitigate the number of TCAS RAs received, RavnAir Alaska worked with ANC Center to create a new waypoint off of the ENA 012 radial at 17nm. This location allows RavnAir Alaska to fly west of the traditional route without interfering with the AMOTT arrivals.
The following Event Schedule include all TCAS RA's reported by RAVN pilots in the area between Anchorage and Kenai.
