Statistical Models Of Runway Incursions Based On Runway Intersections And Taxiways, Mary E. Johnson, Xun Zhao, Brian Faulkner, John P. Young

Journal of Aviation Technology and Engineering

According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the number of runway incursions are rising. The configuration of runways and taxiways at airports has been identified by the FAA as possibly being related to the number of incursions. In this paper, the relationship between airport geometry factors and the number of runway incursions at specific United States airports is explored using statistical analyses. Airport operations data from the FAA Air Traffic Activity System, runway incursion data from the FAA Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing System from 2009 through 2013, and airport geometry data created using airport geometry features from the ...
