BENEFIT-COST ANALYSIS OF PROCEDURES FOR ACCOUNTING FOR RUNWAY FRICTION ON LANDING

This report describes and presents results of a study undertaken to better understand the use of currently available guidance material related to runway condition, and to develop an economic rationale for making greater use of runway friction information. The study included a review of existing standards and guidance materials, and an analysis of runway conditions and reporting of friction at airports. Results are presented from a survey of Canadian airline pilots on current practices, their use of guidance material and views on accounting for runway friction. The results demonstrate the risk of overruns when landing on slippery versus dry runways and whether benefits of accounting for slippery runways exceed the costs. Recommendations are made regarding changes to requirements for accounting for runway friction on landing.
