Vision and mission
"To be a Company recognized for its safe and efficient Air Navigation and Airport services, contributing to the integration of the peoples and in harmony with the environment".
"Provide first-level Air Navigation and Airport Services, with safety, efficiency and social responsibility".
Our Corporation provides the facilities, services and procedures for air navigation, thus forming an integrated system, designed to satisfy in the immediate future, the operational requirements of civil aircraft in the National and International scope within the limits of the Information Region of Flight (FIR) Lima until the year 2010. Therefore, CORPAC, has as main social objective the following:
a) Operating, equipping and maintaining commercial airports open to air traffic, including the dependencies, services, facilities and equipment required by the aeronautical technique, in accordance with international standards recognized by the Peruvian State and the legal and regulatory provisions related to the operation of the airports and their services.
b) Establish, administer and conserve the services of air navigation assistance, aeronautical radiocommunications and other technical services necessary for the safety of the country's air operations.
c) Establish and maintain the order of air traffic and its corresponding control assigned by the Ministry of Transport and Communications.
d) Establish appropriate and appropriate communication systems required to regulate and control overflight air traffic.
CORPAC SA joins efforts in the great development task of our country, contributing to the growing development of commercial aviation, collaboration that has been demonstrated with the works of equipment, modernization and improvement of the 44 airports and aerodromes that it administers nationally . Therefore, CORPAC offers all the necessary services for the effective transit of commercial aircraft that use Peruvian airspace, as well as related services for passengers; These services can be grouped by:
2.1 Aeronautical Services : Rendered to aircraft during the flight and at the time of their landing or take-off. This service is divided into the following assistances:
Air Traffic Control
We provide efficient security to aircraft, both those in flight and those in the vicinity of the airport, by controlling all air routes within the country, thus maintaining a constant flow in the transit of the same. For this service, a radar system is currently used to capture aircraft for several miles around, greatly facilitating air traffic and providing greater security in their operations.
Safe Air Navigation Air
traffic control services maintain a safe, fast and orderly flow of traffic by applying separations between aircraft and issuing authorizations to individual flights as close as possible to their chosen profiles and taking into account the state current use of airspace.
Air traffic control services must be provided 24 hours a day, in all controlled airspaces in which international operations are carried out during the phases of en-route and terminal flight.
The nascent aviation of the beginning of the century matured rapidly after the Second World War. Thanks to the technological advances achieved during the war years, the development of commercial air transport around the world accelerated. However, the continuous increase of aircraft of various characteristics brought unforeseen complexities.
Prior to air traffic control, the rules for aircraft separation were based on the "see and be seen" principle, with pilots responsible for maintaining a prudent distance between their aircraft. This system is still used, generally by light aircraft flying in uncontrolled spaces, but the method only gives results if there are good weather conditions, and only for light air traffic.
The air traffic controller
With the time and the constant increase of aircraft, it became indispensable to create flight itineraries, as well as to appoint a professional specialized in controlling air navigation, regardless of the existing weather conditions. This professional was called an Air Traffic Controller.
In those first days, the Air Traffic Controller could only take care of the landings and take offs: he placed lighters, used signs of light, and sometimes even had to clear animals from the landing strip. But as technology and communications improved, the controller obtained the necessary tools to take over the monitoring and control of all phases of flight.
The control towers in airports are usually the most visible part of the Air Traffic Control, this service is carried out by several teams of specialists, whose work goes unnoticed for the traveler. Some controllers are responsible for the control of en-route aircraft, that is, while they are between the point of departure and their destination, while others are responsible for the phases of departure and arrival of aircraft, immediately after takeoff and at the moment prior to the departure. landing.
We provide users with meteorological information necessary for the performance of aeronautical functions. We received information in real time of surface and height, images from meteorological satellites and graphic and alphanumeric information from the World Area Forecast System (WAFS). All this information is analyzed and processed, to then prepare the aerodrome and route forecasts, in order to contribute to safety, regularity and international air efficiency.
Our service has a meteorological telecommunications network linked to 30 airports nationwide, which in turn is connected to the international aeronautical telecommunication network and the meteorological telecommunications network of the World Meteorological Organization - WMO. It has the necessary instruments at the national level to generate meteorological information, in addition to an automatic station Radiovientosonda in Lima that allows to obtain information of the atmospheric conditions of height, a receiver of satellite images and a WAFS receiver, an OPMET Data Bank and an Awos III Automatic Station in Lima, with RVR in both runway headers and a ceilometer.
CORPAC SA is the Meteorological Authority designated by the General Directorate of Air Transport (DGTA) that represents the contracting state before the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). Provides aviation meteorological service in accordance with ICAO Annex 3, composed of internationally recommended regulations, standards and methods coordinated with the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
The aeronautical meteorological service of Peru is intended to contribute to the safety, regularity and efficiency of national and international air navigation, for this purpose it provides the necessary meteorological information to the users, members of the flight crew, to the dependencies of the services of air traffic, search and rescue, airport administration and all entities interested in the operation or development of air navigation, for the performance of their respective functions.
