As the summer approaches, we can expect a rise in airport traffic in the air and on the runways. With this in mind, the FAA is redoubling its efforts to offer guidance, resources, and expertise to preempt any airfield errors by general aviation pilots, especially those who have spent a year away from the cockpit.
On June 16, 2021, the FAA is hosting a free Runway Safety Town Hall for all general aviation pilots. It will be a live online event that will offer best practices and a discussion from GA pilots, air traffic controllers, and runway safety experts.
Discussion topics include preflight preparation, situational awareness, focused and clear communications, knowledge of runway geometry and signage, and more, FAA officials explain.
The Runway Safety Town Hall for General Aviation pilots will run from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.
Pilots can register for the event here. Participants registered on the livestream will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists and will receive FAA WINGS credit for attending the entire event.
The Town Hall also will be livestreamed on FAA’s YouTube channel, but viewers on this channel will not be able to ask questions or gain WINGS credit, according to FAA officials.
