Podcast: Avoiding Wrong Surface Incidents

May 16, 2022

Since 2017, the FAA has recorded more than 1,300 times when an aircraft has landed on the wrong runway or at the wrong airport, or even on a taxiway. Even more sobering, more than 80% of those incidents involved general aviation aircraft, with a similarly high percentage occurring in daytime visual meteorological conditions. Working with industry stakeholders and air traffic controllers, the FAA will soon provide new tools to help pilots understand what the airport view will look like from the flight deck as they approach and where the risks for selecting the wrong surface exist.

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Giovanni DiPierro, Runway Safety Group manager, FAA
  • Alex Gertsen, director, airports and ground infrastructure, NBAA
  • Bridget Singratanakul, national runway safety representative, NATCA
