Flight Safety Considerations
- Bird Strike, is common and can be a significant threat to aircraft safety. For smaller aircraft, significant damage may be caused to the aircraft structure and all aircraft, especially jet-engined ones, are vulnerable to the loss of thrust which can follow the ingestion of birds into engine air intakes, which has caused a number of fatal accidents.
- Parallel Runway Operation, need to be carefully managed in such a manner as to minimise the risk of runway incursion or wrong runway use due. Closely-spaced parallel runways may affect the pilots' situational awareness or lead to their distraction or confusion.
- Engineered Materials Arresting System, uses a specially installed surface which quickly stops any aircraft that moves on it and is installed at the end of runways to reduce the extent, and associated risks, of any overrun off the end of a runway
