Description

Runway safety provides guidance to operational staff working on and around the manoeuvring area to prevent runway accidents - in particular runway incursions and runway excursions.

The EUROCONTROL Safety Improvement Sub Group (SISG) (runway safety) supports airports, associated operational stakeholders and regulators in various runway safety matters:

  • It participated in the definition and is currently supporting the deployment of the European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Incursions (EAPPRI) and the European Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Excursions (EAPPRE);
  • It provides guidance to and develops training courses for operational stakeholders to prevent runway accidents. (see IANS Training Catalogue Aerodrome Resource Management (ARM) courses)

The recommendations and guidance materials contained in each action plan raise awareness of what local runway safety teams can do to improve the safety of runway operations.

The Action Plans help to identify the operational hazards of working on and around the manoeuvring area.
