RUNWAYS ARE HAZARDOUS

System needs to be perfect

… Nearly will not do


Preventing Runway IncursionsPast lessons

  • 1977 Single runway –Tenerife

  • 2000 Parallel runways –Charles de Gaulle

  • 2001 Crossing runways - Milan Linate


Preventing Runway IncursionsPC Objectives - 2003

Raise awareness of operational hazards

Provide joint training


Preventing Runway IncursionsAchievements

  • European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Incursions

  • A380 Wake Vortex Separation criteria

  • Aerodrome Resource Management Training

  • Input to ICAO Runway Safety Manual

  • Runway Safety Awareness CD


Preventing Runway IncursionsRecommendations widely implemented

Local Runway Safety Teams

  • 150 Airports (towers) approached – 120 replies

  • Of which

    • 73% Airports formal training introduced

    • 80% Airlines promote best practices

    • 92% Local Runway Safety Teams implemented

    • 92% Awareness Campaigns


Preventing Runway IncursionsGlobal Achievements

  • One runway incursion definition

  • Use of standard ICAO phraseology

  • ICAO Runway Safety Manual

  • Runway Safety part of the Universal Safety Oversight programme

  • IFALPA, IFATCA and ACI working together


Preventing Runway IncursionsAwareness makes a difference

Class A’s & B’s reduced

No common RI definition

Fear of reporting

What is an RI?

2 per day in ECAC


Preventing Runway IncursionsClass A

Class A Examples

  • Two aircraft narrowly miss at an intersection at high speed (150m)

  • Aircraft lines up in front of landing aircraft (50m)

  • Aircraft lines up in front of landing aircraft – wing height separation as landing passes over lined up

  • Aircraft crosses in front of take off who got airborne early and missed the crosser (30 m)

  • Vehicle mistakes runway for taxiway – enters in front of a departure (50m)


Preventing Runway IncursionsWay Forward

  • Development of the European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Incursions

  • Standardise ground training for Pilots

  • Lights On global policy

  • Develop Local Runway Safety Team concept with IATA

  • Study Stop Bar use 24h

  • Introduce Aerodrome Runway Incursion Assessment

  • Contribute to the development of technology based safety nets


Preventing Runway IncursionsWhat is needed

Simultaneous positional informationSimultaneous proximity warning for Pilots, Controllers and Drivers


Preventing Runway IncursionsSummary

  • Technology can and does help to prevent runway incursions

  • Future development needed

  • Good communications help prevent runway incursions e.g. the use of standard ICAO phraseologies and procedures

  • No blame, open reporting of runway incursions

  • Learning the lesson is difficult

  • Runways are hostile and challenging environments

  • Runway Incursions are a difficult problem to resolve completely


Preventing Runway IncursionsFollow on work

  • Standardise ground training for Pilots ??

  • Lights On global policy ??

  • Short term ??
