To improve Runway Safety in the United States by decreasing the number and severity of Surface Incidents and Runway Incursions.
This information on runway incursions is a way to analyze breakdowns or holes in the Air Traffic system. They can show what, how and why an event occurred. They can happen in numerous ways and can be caused by any combination of errors, fatigue, negligence, etc. Luckily the Runway Safety Office has set a goal in accordance with FAA Call to Action to lower incursions to less than 50% from the previous year.
The Runway Safety Report helps the Runway Safety Office and the Office of Safety analyze the past years progression and efforts to show decreases or increases in the Runway Incursions and over all safety on the runway for the flying public. The Runway Safety Plan was created to project future endeavors and plans for Runway Safety from the present through 2011.
