Runway Incursions on the Rise
Putting an end to Runway Incursions is a priority for the KLVJ Team. The ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) defines a runway incursion as "any occurrence at an aerodrome involving the incorrect presence of an aircraft, vehicle, or person on the protected area of a surface designated for the landing and take-off of aircraft."
In plain speak, an incursion occurs every time a car crosses the runway without communicating via radio and without proper vehicle lights. I cannot overemphasize how dangerous and reckless this is to the vehicle passengers and to the aircraft operating at the airport.
These incursions cannot continue. Because of the repeated violations, we have begun monitoring and recording all runway incursions, and will report them to the FAA. We must all be held accountable for the safety of others while at KLVJ.
I ask everyone to be vigilant and assist our staff in protecting the pilots using the airport. If you see someone crossing, or attempting to cross the runway, say something. Together we can ensure that every aircraft has a safe place to take-off and land.
If you are towing an aircraft, or have a direct need to cross the runway without any alternative, we require two simple things: radio contact with aircraft and a visible beacon light of some kind on your vehicle.
We are more than happy to escort anyone across the runway using our approved vehicles.
