NBAA Issues New Runway Excursion Risk Doc

Business Aviation Most At Risk From Runway Excursions, Says Group

As Runway incidents became higher profile than ever, a flurry of industry work began earlier this year to put a stop to runway incursions and excursions - and NBAA publications have been issued at a breakneck pace to support the effort.

The newest addition to the NBAA library, “Reducing Runway Excursions in Business Aviation: a high-level guide on mitigating the risks” is a 25-page document going over the myriad “psychological and physical factors that cause excursions on takeoffs and landings and explains how to address them in training programs and safety management systems.”

Excursions remain the “leading cause of accidents in business aviation”, according to the Association. “According to the Flight Safety Foundation, business jet operations experienced 79 runway excursions from 2017 to 2022, accounting for nearly 41% of business jet accidents during that period. Six of the excursions were fatal, resulting in 18 total deaths.”

“The Runway Excursion Guide is intended to raise awareness about a significant challenge facing the business aviation industry,” said Noah Yarborough, NBAA manager of flight operations. “Written in plain English, the document contains a series of practical steps that flight crews and operators can take to improve airport safety in a proactive manner. The guide is also designed to be a reference for a number of factors to consider, along with links to more in-depth reading from industry resources that have spent considerable time studying the causes of, and possible solutions, to runway excursions.”
