Federal Aviation Administration WELCOMERunway Condition Determination, Reporting, and Report Dissemination Workshop Presentation to: Aviation Industry By: Mr. Jerry Ostronic, AFS-220 Date: August 7-8, 2006
Workshop Focus • What can we do to Obtain the most accurate, timely and usable runway surface condition information? • What can we do to universally Report runway surface condition information more accurately and timely? • What can we do to Disseminate runway surface condition information more accurately and timely?
Goals • Short Term • Identify what can be accomplished through voluntary industry compliance for the upcoming winter season 2006-2007. • Develop draft documents and guidance material to address these issues for the winter season 2006-2007 • Determine required coordination to finalize draft documents and guidance material for winter season 2006-2007 • Designate responsible parties for finalization of draft documents and guidance material. • Establish schedule for completion and methods of distribution of final documents and guidance material for winter season 2006-2007
Goals • Longer Term • Identify what role current and future ground and airborne technologies, recoding systems, and reporting programs may play in providing more accurate and timely runway surface condition information. • Determine next steps. • Assign responsible parties and individuals for follow up actions. • Determine schedule and method for reporting back to industry on determinations and findings.

INTRODUCTIONS • Your Name • Your Organization • What Your Organization Does and Who it Represents (If Necessary)
Common Terms and Definition Group Mission Statement- Develop common definitions for pilot braking reports of Good/ Fair (Medium)/Poor/Nil. Develop common guidelines for flightcrew assessment of braking action conditions (how to take and report).
Runway Condition Reports Group Mission Statement- Standardize runway condition reports provided by airport operators. Determine what type reports are most useable by aircraft operators under various runway contaminate conditions.
Technology and Programs Groups Mission Statement- Develop a plan to use current and future technologies and programs to better determine an aircrafts expected stopping capabilities. Explore what information might be available through Flight Operation Quality Assurance (FOQA) programs, Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP), and timely data transmissions from onboard data recorder systems.
Report Dissemination Group Mission Statement- Determine what can be accomplished to provide the most accurate and timely information to flightcrews and operators.
