The Pilots section is a tool for commercial and general aviation pilots to utilize when flying at towered and non- towered airports. It consists of best practices, airport diagrams, hotspots, training, instruction, and briefings.
The best practices were developed by FAA staff to help pilots improve safety by giving guidelines that should be followed to keep skills and focus current and vigilant. Remember: over 80% of pilot- caused runway incursions occur during taxi to the departure runway..
REMEMBER: WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK!
