Don't become a victim of runway incursions!
Are you familiar with the problem of "runway incursions?" Have you ever had a runway incursion? A runway incursion is "Any occurrence at an airport involving an aircraft, vehicle, person, or object on the ground that creates a collision hazard or results in a loss of separation with an aircraft taking off, intending to takeoff, landing, or intending to land."
All pilots can agree on one fact: It’s easy to become disoriented, overloaded, or misunderstand communications when operating on the ground. Yet ground operations are one of the most critical phases of any flight. The fact is, runway and airport safety is getting worse. As of December 1, 2011, the number of runway incursions and other ground incidents is rising.
What can you do to help ensure that you won't cause a runway incursion in the future? What can you do to help prevent being a victim of a runway incursion?
