Flight Safety Considerations

  • 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
