The runway plays a key role in flight safety, especially during take-off and landing, the two most critical phases of the flight.
Runway incursions and excursions are the main safety related incidents at airports and could lead to catastrophic accidents. Although being a priority for regulatory bodies such as EASA, FAA and ICAO, runway safety remains a very complex issue for airport stakeholders.
Established Surface Movement Guidance (A-SMGCS) and ground-based radars support the reduction of those critical runway events. However, not only new technologies are significant in increasing safety but human factors are the single greatest defence against aircraft incidents. Far-reaching training and sufficient understanding from airport operatives, airline personnel, airport stakeholders and air traffic control are essential in providing suitable runway safety.
This highly interactive 3-day course benefits from the insight of operational flight crew and gives participants the opportunity to improve their knowledge of runway safety, airfield design and systems that can lead to risk. Furthermore, attendees learn how to identify and mitigate threats and take a proactive approach towards airfield and runway safety, gain a stronger working knowledge of 'live' airfield operations and how equipment and human error influence runway safety.
ICAO Annex 14 lists many airport design features that serve as a useful tool to review requirements, ensure compliance and protect the organisation from runway-based incidents. The course also places emphasis on ICAO Annex 19 and Safety Management System (SMS) as well as the upcoming changes to the new operational concepts of assessment, measurement and reporting of runway surface conditions (ICAO Circular 355).
Working with case studies, developing individual strategies for managing risk in a specific operational environment, this course is designed to provide you with the tools to return to your organisation and directly implement new ideas to benefit from a safer, more efficient operation.
airsight offers this training course on request, worldwide. At the end of the course, all participants will receive an airsight certificate based on EASA training regulations, which is highly recognized throughout the aviation industry.
