Runway Safety Areas

An Airport Operator’s Perspective


Runway safety areas are important l.jpg
Runway Safety Areas are Important

  • A Critical Safety Enhancement

  • FAA Flight Plan Goal

    • Where practical, upgrade runway safety areas to meet standards

  • FAA Order 5200.8, Runway Safety Area Program

    • RSA Determination

      • Meets Standards

      • Can Be Improved to Standards

      • Can Be Improved But Will Not Meet Standards

      • Cannot Be Improved

    • Incremental gains (improvement) must be obtained whenever possible (Appendix 1, paragraph 4a.)

    • Maintain an RSA Inventory

The runway safety area standard l.jpg
The Runway Safety Area Standard

  • Dimensions–

    • Width and Length Beyond Runway Ends

    • Aircraft and Visibility Minimums

    • EMAS can limit the length to 600 ft beyond the runway end

  • Performance– Capable, under dry conditions of supporting:

    • Aircraft fire fighting and snow removal equipment, and

    • Occasional passage of aircraft without causing structural damage

  • Other Requirements–

    • No potentially hazardous ruts, humps, depressions …

    • Graded and drained to prevent water accumulation

    • Free of objects higher than 3 inches …



Runway safety areas and part 139 l.jpg
Runway Safety Areas and Part 139

  • 139.7– FAA ACs contain methods and procedures for compliance

  • 139.309– Runway Safety Areas

    • Provide and maintain…

    • RSA standards

  • 139.327– Self-Inspection Program

    • AC 150/5200-18C, Airport Safety Self-Inspection

      • Regular, daily inspections

      • Periodic condition inspections

  • Airport Certification Manual

    • Approved and current

    • Contents

      • Description of RSA

      • Procedures for maintaining RSA


Runway safety areas and emas l.jpg
Runway Safety Areas and EMAS

  • EMAS is Runway Safety Area

    • Complies with RSA requirements per Part 139

    • Inspect it like an RSA

    • Exception: Stepped Sides

  • Manufacturer’s Inspection Requirements

    • Specific inspection procedures provided by manufacturer

    • Initial training

    • Drive-around

    • Walk through

    • Documentation






Typical emas maintenance issues l.jpg

Lifting or missing caulk

Surface cracks

Depressions

Holes

Loose Covering

Abrasion attack (sand, jet blast)

Chemical attack (solvents, weak acid or weak alkaline solutions)

Crushed block

Damage to vertical side walls

Damage to debris deflector

Clogged vents

Seals around light standards

Block movement

Typical EMAS Maintenance Issues




Conclusion l.jpg
Conclusion

  • Runway Safety Areas are important

  • Be aware of any RSA deficiencies

    • Overall dimensions

    • Review RSA Inventory

    • Look for opportunities to improve

  • Stay on top of the RSA through inspections

  • Integrate EMAS inspections with RSA inspections
