Incursion Information Evaluation Program Renewed

 - October 12, 2006, 8:37 AM

The FAA is extending its runway incursion information evaluation program for another 24 months, through July 20, 2006, to gather further data about the causes of runway incursions and other surface incidents. The program involves in-depth interviews with pilots and mechanics whose actions might play a role in an incursion. To encourage participation in the program in case there are possible regulatory violations, the FAA said it will waive enforcement actions (certificate suspensions or civil penalties) and instead use “administrative” actions (counseling or remedial training).
