This guide is developed to provide Latin American and the Caribbean airport community a suitable and expedite guide about references and the best practices on runway maintenance according to ICAO’s SARP’s (Standards and Recommended Practices) and other related documentation. The guide presents “best practices” currently implemented at some airports as well as it provides references from IATA, ACI, the Flight Safety Foundation and FAA Advisory Circulars, focused on runway maintenance that may prevent Runway Excursions (RE), which is the most common runway maintenance-related type of incidents. Download this publication »
