Previous research by the investigator has addressed the problem of runway incursions at the 35 largest U.S. towered airports and examined if a relationship exists between the methods used for airport movement area driver training and the number of runway incursions. Previous research has also investigated how effective the FAA runway incursions initiatives were by ranking the responses to a survey of U.S. airports, airlines, and aviation trade associations. The goals of this study will be to evaluate the current FAA Runway Safety Blueprint 2002-2004 initiatives and to rank them in order of their effectiveness by a survey of industry officials and compare current rankings to the results of previous research rankings conducted in a 1994 study. Finally, conclusions and recommendations for the FAA's review will be developed.
