Runway Safety Town Hall for GA Pilots

Airport traffic is on the rise as summer looms before us, and since many general aviation pilots have spent a year away from the cockpit, a timely review of safety procedures is essential.  The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is offering an opportunity for pilots to revisit runway safety protocols by offering guidance, resources, and expertise to help alleviate any airfield errors from occurring and lower the potential for accidents. 

On June 16, the FAA is hosting a Runway Safety Town Hall for all general aviation pilots.  The aviation refresher course will be a live online event to offer best practices and discussion from GA pilots, air traffic controllers, and runway safety experts.  

Discussion topics by pilots and air traffic experts will include preflight preparation; situational awareness; focused and clear communications; knowledge of runway geometry and signage; and more.  The Runway Safety Town Hall for General Aviation pilots will be held 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time on Wednesday, June 16.  The event is free.

Pilots can register for the event here. Participants registered on the livestream will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and will receive FAA WINGS credit for attending the entire event. The Town Hall also will be livestreamed on FAA’s YouTube channel, but viewers on this channel will not be able to ask questions nor gain WINGS credit.
