RUNWAYS ARE HAZARDOUS

System needs to be perfect

… Nearly will not do


Preventing runway incursions past lessons

Preventing Runway IncursionsPast lessons

  • 1977 Single runway –Tenerife

  • 2000 Parallel runways –Charles de Gaulle

  • 2001 Crossing runways - Milan Linate


Preventing runway incursions pc objectives 2003

Preventing Runway IncursionsPC Objectives - 2003

Raise awareness of operational hazards

Provide joint training


Preventing runway incursions achievements

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 incursions recommendations widely implemented

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 incursions global achievements

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 incursions awareness makes a difference

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 incursions class a

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 incursions what is needed

Preventing Runway IncursionsWhat is needed

Simultaneous positional informationSimultaneous proximity warning for Pilots, Controllers and Drivers


Preventing runway incursions summary

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 incursions follow on work

Preventing Runway IncursionsFollow on work

  • Standardise ground training for Pilots ??

  • Lights On global policy ??

  • Short term ??
