Guide to Control Runway Incursions at Airports

Develop practical guidance on how airports of different sizes and complexities can identify hazards that can lead to runway incursions and recommend actions involving infrastructure changes, prevention systems and safety promotion initiatives that can be adopted.

Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)

Runway incursions continue to present a severe hazard to flight operations at all airports. While incursions rarely result in catastrophic outcomes, the risk to the safety of flight operations at an airport remains high as a result of the severity of the hazard. Runway incursions are not events solely resulting from the actions of pilots. Incursions are the result of a number of contributing factors, some in the control of the airport, but many are the result of the actions of airport stakeholders. Researching and sharing practices that best control the frequency and outcomes of runway incursions can enhance airport and operations safety.

Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)

A report with guidance on how airports of different sizes and complexities can identify hazards that can lead to runway incursions and recommend actions involving infrastructure changes, prevention systems and safety promotion initiatives that can be adopted.
