Runway Safety Pilot Simulator

FAA's Runway Safety Pilot Simulator video series is a self-guided resource to assist flight instructors with teaching student pilots surface safety best practices, before they step foot into the cockpit. It allows student pilots to navigate on airport surfaces while communicating with Air Traffic Control (ATC) and following instructions provided. The scenarios are interactive and allow viewers to make decisions based on ATC instructions.
