Description of the aircraft docking guidance system
An automatic docking guidance system which helps the aircraft crews during marshalling onto the stands.
At Zurich Airport, all dock stands are equipped with an automatic docking guidance system which helps the aircraft crews during marshalling onto the stands. It also displays flight information such as the flight number, expected off-block time and take-off time on the runway.
Due to system replacement, there are two different docking guidance systems in operation:
- Safegate Aircraft Docking Guidance System "Safedock" (existing)
- Honeywell Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (new)
The function and indications on the displays for each system are described in the corresponding document.
