Flight Safety Foundation, partners target runway excursion prevention
12 January 2021

In a bid to reduce runway excursions, the Flight Safety Foundation and Eurocontrol have released the Global Action Plan for the Prevention of Runway Excursions (GAPPRE).

Runway excursions are the most frequent type of accident in aviation and regularly are identified as one of the most serious risks for large and small aircraft. Because of the complexity of the risk factors, preventing runway excursions requires coordination and commitment among numerous
stakeholders.

The action plan, which contains recommendations for operators, airports, air navigation service providers, aircraft manufacturers and regulators, was developed by an international team of more than 100 aviation professionals from more than 40 organizations.

The initiative was coordinated by Flight Safety Foundation and EUROCONTROL, and the GAPPRE recommendations have been validated by the Airports Council International (ACI), the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO), the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
