Surface Safety

FAA initiated an extensive program to improve the safety of operations on and adjacent to airports. The materials listed here were contained in a CD produced by the FAA. A variety of materials, including videos, slide presentations, and brochures are available that address improved surface operations, primarily in terms of reducing runway incursions.

If you think you don't need any training on this, just try taking the Runway Safety Test. It may be a humbling experience.

For a start, check out the FAA's video on Airport Markings and Signs -- it's a good refresher.
