Flight safety during Covid-19: A study of Charles de Gaulle airport atypical energy approaches

Abstract : During the COVID-19 period and particularly during lockdown, the number of speeding offences on the roads have tended to increase. Likewise in the air, deviation from nominal operations have shown to become more frequent. This paper proposes to evaluate the impact of COVID-19 on the pilot/controller system, especially during the critical approach and landing phases. To study the influence of COVID-19, an existing energy atypicality metric is applied on a reference period before COVID-19 and compared to the COVID-19 period. Trends, statistics, and specific flights are illustrated and analyzed, underlying an increase in glide interceptions from above and high speed approaches.
