Runway Incursion Causal Analysis


Runway incursion causal analysis

Genesis of a Incursion

A safety hazard/ runway incursion is likely to occur when the exact location of an aircraft or vehicle on the airport surface in relation to a specific ATC clearance is unknown.

PILOTS and VEHICLE OPERATORS must taxi and maneuver their aircraft/vehicles on taxiways and runways in accordance with ATC instructions.

CONTROLLERS must monitor the location and progression of the aircraft and vehicles operating on the airport surface, in accordance with instructions issued, to provide separation assurance.

Runway Incursion Causal Categories

OPERATIONAL ERROR (OE)- A human error caused by a tower controller. There are over 8000 tower controllers in the U.S.

PILOT DEVIATION (PD) - A human error caused by a pilot. There are over 675,000 licensed pilots in the U.S.

VEHICLE/PEDESTRIAN DEVIATION (V/PD) - A human error caused by a vehicle operator or pedestrian which results in an entry onto the movement area that has not been authorized by ATC.

Runway incursion causal analysis

Operational Error (OE)

CONTROLLERS are at risk of being a party to an incursion when they are unable to correlate their visual observations of the aircraft/vehicle location with previously issued ATC instructions.

Some contributing factors include:

-FAILURE TO FOLLOW ESTABLISHED STANDARDIZED PROCEDURES

-FAILURE TO UNDERSTAND THE IMPLICATIONS OF THEIR ACTIONS OR INACTIONS

-LACK OF TRAINING & PRACTICE TO INTERNALIZE PROCEDURES

-LOSS OF SITUATIONAL AWARENESS


Primary performance factors of operational error runway incursions 1997 2001

Primary Performance Factors of Operational Error Runway Incursions (1997-2001)

There were 430 Operational Error Runway Incursions 398 of these Operational Errors were analyzed

  • 186 loss of arrival/departure separation on same/intersecting runways

55 involved a simultaneous runway crossing with an aircraft landing or departing with coordination


Primary performance factors of operational error runway incursions continued

Primary Performance Factors of Operational Error Runway Incursions (Continued)

54 other operational errors included: mistaking the location of aircraft or vehicle on/near runway, clearing aircraft to land/depart from closed runway, and errors involving taxi into position and hold (TIPH).

  • 52 simultaneous runway crossings with an aircraft landing or departing with lack of coordination

51 “hear back/read back” involving entries or crossings

Primary Performance Factors of Operational Error Runway Incursions (1997-2001)

Loss of Separation on the Runway

Crossing

“Read Back/ Hear Back”

Lack of Coordination between Ground and Local with Crossing

Simultaneous Runway Crossing with Arrival and Departure

Other OEs included mistaken traffic location, usage of closed runway, and misuse of TIPH clearance.

for the period of March 17, 2000 through March 16, 2001.


Runway incursion causal analysis

Pilot Deviation (PD)

PILOTS are at risk of being a party to an incursion when they are unable to correlate their visual observations of airport signs, markings and lighting and other physical features on the airport with the specific ATC taxi instructions.

Contributing Factors:

-FAILURE TO ASK FOR HELP WHEN CONFUSED

-FAILURE TO USE THE AIRPORT DIAGRAM

-LACK OF TRAINING

-NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE AIRPORT


Primary performance factors of pilot deviation runway incursions 1997 2001

Primary Performance Factors of Pilot Deviation Runway Incursions (1997-2001)

There were 972 Pilot Deviation Runway Incursions 719 of these Pilot Deviations were analyzed

87 other pilot deviations included: landing over aircraft in position and landing/departing on closed/wrong runways, taxiways, etc.

  • 537 pilots entered the runway or crossed the hold short line after acknowledging hold short instructions

95 pilots took off without clearance after acknowledging “taxi into position and hold” (TIPH) instructions
