The NTSB will hold a one-day forum on March 27 focusing on runway incursions and accidents and potential solutions. “Eliminating runway incursions and collisions is a top priority of the Safety Board and has been on our Most Wanted List since 1990,” said NTSB chairman Mark Rosenker, who will preside over the forum. “The NTSB has investigated several near collisions in the past few years that could have been catastrophic if it hadn’t been for sharp-eyed flight crews and luck.” The scope of the problem, how to avoid runway incursions, educational initiatives and new technologies are expected to be highlighted by representatives from the FAA, DOD, Flight Safety Foundation, Air Line Pilots Association International, AOPA and the National Air Traffic Controllers Association. The forum will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at NTSB headquarters in Washington, D.C. The public is invited. Pre-registration is not required.
