NextGen Flight Deck Technology for Runway Incursions
Tuesday, March 5 | | 8:30 am to 9:30 am
Las Vegas Convention Center, North Hall, Room N255
Flight Operations Track
This course will analyze the effectiveness of current safety controls for reducing runway incursions, consider precedents from regulation-based technological controls, and explore NextGen runway incursion awareness systems as aircraft flight deck equipage. Reduction of runway incursions has been a top strategic objective for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) over the last decade and is repeatedly listed on the National Transportation Safety Board’s Most Wanted List of transportation safety improvements.
Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to define a runway incursion and be familiar with the capabilities and limitations of NextGen flight deck technology for runway incursion awareness in rotorcraft and the technological precedents for mitigating hazards through flight deck technology.
Robert Joslin is the FAA’s chief scientific and technical advisor for flight deck technology and is involved in the certification of some of the latest technologies. Previously, Joslin was a colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps and an FAA flight test pilot with 37 years of aviation experience in all types of military and civilian jet, propeller, rotorcraft, and powered-lift aircraft..
