This safety enhancement will reduce wrong runway departures by providing scenario-based training for controllers highlighting the contributing factors that have led to wrong runway departures. The training would focus on:

  • Operations in complex airports;
  • Airport geometry;
  • Communications;
  • Taxi/departure clearances;
  • Understanding and managing fatigue and time pressures;
  • Taxi Into Position and Hold (TIPH); and
  • Situational awareness

as described in the Wrong Runway Safety Action Team Report report.
