2 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 2 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL The Problem of Runway Incursions in Europe

3 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 3 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL The main objectives of EUROCONTROL are to harmonise and integrate Air Navigation Services in Europe, aiming at the creation of a European Air Traffic Management System, to achieve the safe, orderly, expeditious and economic flow of air traffic throughout Europe.

4 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 4 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL DIVISION DED 4 - 4/11/97 Traffic Growth Traffic : increased threefold over last 25 years. Baseline forecasts : steady growth of 4% per annum. Traffic demand : expected to double over next 20 years

13 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 13 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL Risk Perception (I) Within the last year, do you think the number of Runway Incursion has...

14 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 14 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL Risk Perception (II) How would you rank “Runway Incursion” among other runway safety concerns...

16 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 16 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL Pilots ATCOs What in your opinion was a contributing cause ? (II)

17 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 17 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL To summarise...  AVAILABILITY of data: few available data at the time of the survey (no reporting scheme or reluctance to share information?)  Approach for ANALYSIS: difficult to combine data (no harmonised approach)  Underlying CAUSAL FACTORS: difficult to understand why Runway Incursion occurs

18 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 18 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL Task Force to develop recommendations GASR - EUROCONTROL - ICAO - JAA - IATA - IFATCA - IFALPA - ACI - IAOPA - AEA - ERA - ECA  Not locked into cycle of continuous data collection  Time scales short  short term -End Jan 2003  medium term -Jan 2004  long term -Jan 2005  Majority of recommendations complete by Jan 2003

19 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 19 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL RECOMMENDATIONS GENERAL AREAS 1 Awareness 2 Data Collection 3 Communications 4 Procedures and working methods (PILOT/ATC/Driver 5 Annex 14 6 Airport Aeronautical Information 7 New Technologies 8 Human Factors 9 Regulatory

20 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 20 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 1 Awareness  Establish a local joint team (ATC/Aircrew/Airport)  Achieve Standardisation through ICAO Provisions  Establish a Runway Safety Programme  General Awareness campaign by Task Force  Dedicated local awareness campaigns  Implement a Safety Management System (SMS)  Introduce Runway Safety into SMS to identify risks & mitigation  Promotion of Recommendations

21 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 21 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 2 Data Collection and Lesson learning  Improve data collection - standard reporting/investigation  Standard agreed definitions  All data to be collected in data base for trend analysis  Non punitive reporting systems  Local Runway Safety Survey to be conducted (as per SMS) to identify hazards  Disseminate disidentified details of incidents/occurrence's both European wide/locally

22 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 22 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 3 Communications  Confirm use of standard ICAO phraseology  Explicit runway crossing clearances  Read back  Runway crossing on single frequency  Clarify rules associated with conditional clearance  R/T, language and phraseology proficiency  All communications associated with runway in English  Driver training programmes introduced

23 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 23 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 4 Procedures and Working Methods  Pilot procedures - best practice  Standard taxi routes - reduce workload near runway  Use of line up and wait  Inspection opposite direction  Use of blocker strips  Use of Capacity Enhancing Procedures  Access of vehicles to manoeuvring area  Cross runways at 90° when possible

24 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 24 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 5 Annex 14  Confirm implementation of Annex 14 provisions - markings/signage/lighting etc.  Identify needs to enhance ground markings  Implementation of Standard ICAO taxiway naming conventions

25 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 25 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 6 Provision of Airport Information  Management Process for charts/publications for accuracy  Establish feedback mechanism with users to detect errors  Improve ergonomics of maps  AIS standardisation

26 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 26 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 7 New Technologies  Consider new technologies as prevention or safety net  Moving ways/graphical displays in cockpits - situational awareness  Assessment of value of automated conflict detection systems

27 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 27 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 8 Human Factors  Understand HF issues contributing to Runway Safety Events  TRM /CRM  Use of multiple capacity enhancing procedures.

28 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 28 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL 9 Regulatory  Licensing of Aerodromes - degree of compliance  Assessment of SMS systems

29 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 29 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL Occurrences  Be200Expect Crossing Clearance  B747Conditional/read back  HS121Cross runway in use (23)  B747Line Up

30 © 2002 EUROCONTROL 30 ‘ One Sky for Europe’ EUROCONTROL Summary  All States cultures/language/ATM Systems  Recommendations cover most areas  Result of Joint action - First in Europe  European action could stop the majority of events leading to Runway Incursion - however we are aware that to remove potential hazards completely will be very difficult
