Runway Incursions: 1997 to 2003


Although most runway incursions do not result in accidents, the potentially catastrophic consequences of runway incursions place them high on the agendas of aviation safety agencies internationally. The majority of runway incursions in Australia have a low potential to result in an accident. Australia has never experienced a large scale accident due to a runway incursion but vigilance is required to maintain this safety record. Data described and analysed in this report were sourced from the ATSB's OASIS database. The data have been reviewed and analysed to better understand runway incursions in Australia.
