Runway Safety Plans

The FAA's top priority is maintaining safety in the National Airspace System (NAS) with great emphasis placed on reducing runway safety risk. The National Runway Safety Plan (NRSP) aligns the strategic priorities of FAA's Runway Safety Group with established Safety Risk Management principles. The NRSP describes how FAA, airport operators, and aviation industry stakeholders collaborate and use data-driven, risk-based decision making to enhance the safety performance in the runway environment and the NAS.

The Regional Runway Safety Plans support the NRSP by focusing on regional and airport specific efforts that contribute to the overall impact of the Runway Safety Program.
