Did you know there is nearly one runway incursion per day in the US, and 25% of those incursions are caused by an aircraft erroneously taxiing onto an active runway?
Runway Incursion Prevention is a major safety initiative throughout the aviation community. Your Falcon 2000 is a good candidate for Honeywell’s Runway Awareness & Advisory System (RAAS)–a heads up advisory system that helps the crew maintain awareness during ground and airport ops, even in the worst visibility. If you have Mark V/VII EGPWS installed, RAAS may be a less expensive upgrade than you think.
The system provides key aural advisories, including:
- “Approaching runway X”
- “On runway X”
- “Insufficient runway length” (takeoff and landing)
- And many more options for situational awareness…
Example: Pilot sidesteps to left runway after being advised he is approaching the right when cleared for the left.
