Overseas Territories Aviation Circulars are issued to provide advice, guidance and information on standards, practices and procedures necessary to support Overseas Territory Aviation Requirements.  They are not in themselves law but may amplify a provision of the Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order or provide practical guidance on meeting a requirement contained in the Overseas Territories Aviation Requirements.


The purpose of this OTAC is to offer guidance to aerodrome operators undertaking measuring and monitoring of friction characteristics of the runway and describes the way the assessment should be carried out using Continuous Friction Monitoring Equipment (CFME).  This OTAC is also intended to raise awareness of a supporting tool.


This Circular relates to OTAR Part 139.


Minor editorial changes.


Enquiries regarding the content of this Circular should be addressed to Air Safety Support International at the address on the ASSI website or to the appropriate Overseas Territory Aviation Authority.
