Runway Incursion

Runway Incursion

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) special emphasis item Runway Incursions is presented in a training module that focuses on preventive measures. The latest information from the FAA and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Runway Safety teams are included in the module. In addition, we reviewed over 500 Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) Reports related to runway incursions by business jet crews to assemble a practical list of prevention techniques. A National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) animated presentation of a runway incursion prevented by a flight crew demonstrates best practices for surface operations. A pilot procedures brochure is available to download in the module.

This module also includes information on the following documents:

  • FAA Safety Alert for Operators (SAFO) 15006: Transponder Use by Aircraft On Airport Movement Areas, 17010: Incorrect Airport Surface Approaches and Landings, 17011 Runway Status Lights (RWSL), and 17012 High Collision Risk During Runway Crossing.
  • FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 120-74B: Flightcrew Procedures During Taxi Operations, AC 91-73B: Single Pilot Procedures During Taxi Operations, and AC 120-57B SMGCS.


After customization, this module satisfies your training program Airman Specific Basic Indoctrination curriculum on all-weather surface operations and airport ground operational safety. During the customization process, we tailor our standard module to the guidance in your General Operations Manual (GOM) related to runway safety.
The module is not required by the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) or Business Aviation Safety Consortium (BASC) standard.
