FAA Issues Aviation Safety Call to Action

A week after holding a rare Safety Summit, the FAA issued a Safety Alert for Operators (SAFO) on March 22 as an apparent response to a recent spate of serious runway incursions.

FAAFAA SAFO No. 23002 urges pilots and flight attendants to share a mutual understanding of what defines a sterile flight deck and “the risks associated with extraneous communications during this time.” Flight crews are also asked to be aware of “the aircraft in relation to taxiways, runways and other aircraft.”

The document encourages pilots to review previous SAFOs related to collision risk during runway crossings, runway incursion prevention actions, as well as flight crew techniques and procedures to enhance safe airfield movements. It also reminds crews to utilize voluntary programs for reporting any safety concerns.
