The FAA announced a new initiative April 14 at Sun ’n Fun aimed at enhancing runway safety. “If you cross the line, you’ve crossed the line!” reminds pilots to stop short of hold-short lines.
The campaign encourages pilots to follow all taxi instructions and to taxi carefully. Taxiing onto a runway without clearance to cross, take off, land, or position and hold puts pilots, passengers, and aircraft in jeopardy.
The AOPA Air Safety Foundation and FAA have been working together to promote runway safety for several years. To learn more about runway safety, check out the resources on the FAA’s Web site, and take the AOPA Air Safety Foundation’s Runway Safety online course.
