By taking into account of the results of airport runway condition, the operation of pilot, the performance of the aircraft and the flight service, ANWS brings out a globally consistent common format, enabling relevant personnel to have a common understanding of the runway condition code, so that the pilot can quickly grasp the condition of each section of the runway and focus on operations to improve flight safety.
