SPECIAL INVESTIGATION REPORT: RUNWAY OVERRUNS FOLLOWING HIGH SPEED REJECTED TAKEOFFS
This report discusses high speed rejected takeoffs (RTOs) of airplanes. Evidence from investigations conducted from the late 1960s suggests that pilots faced with unusual or unique situations may perform high speed RTOs unnecessarily or may perform them improperly. The Safety Board surveyed a sample of U.S.-based major and national operators to determine how they train their flightcrew members to both recognize the need for and to execute high speed rejected takeoffs. As a result of this special investigation, the Safety Board issued several recommendations to address the guidance and training flightcrew members receive in recognizing the need to execute and in the performance of rejected takeoffs.
