Best Practices for Working in or Near Airport Movement Areas

  Project Data
Funds: $325,000
Research Agency: Ricondo & Associates, Inc
Principal Investigator: Colleen Quinn
Effective Date: 8/4/2011
Completion Date: 11/30/2013


Airport operators are challenged by the competing interests of safely conducting activities in the airport movement areas while minimizing impacts on flight operations. Personnel find that it’s difficult to access airport movement areas to conduct maintenance, operations, and construction activities due to a variety of reasons. Airport operators have adopted their own practices for dealing with these day-to-day challenges.  As such, research is needed to identify best practices for working in or near airport movement areas.
The objectives of this research are to (1) identify best practices for working in or near airport movement areas and (2) develop tools, techniques, and training aids that can be used by airport operators to train their personnel, tenants, and contractors on the best practices.

STATUS: The guidance and materials have been published as Report 101: Best Practices Manual for Working In or Near Airport Movement Areas and with a video Staying Safe on the Airfield, a database of best practices and other tools and worksheets which can be found in CD-150.
