Schedule the dates for the RSATS you select


The following is a note from FAA Runway Safety about LRSAT Info/Dates.  These meeting are held regularly and are conducted by Runway Safety Experts in conjunction with the local airport ATC team.  They are essentially meant for the area professionals and local airport stakeholders; and the attendees have been granted invitations prior to the event in order to attend.  This page, and the upcoming schedule, is published as a means of allowing those seriously interested in runway safety and airport operations, and not already involved in these programs the informational means to request an invitation.




I have a request in for the 2020 schedule...   I am sure they will arrive shortly...   As soon as I have the dates, I will post them here!    - Thanks!

12/05   Joe has mentioned that he is working on the 2020 schedule now.

POSTED 9/04/2019

Hello All,

Below is a message regarding the upcoming Runway Safety Action Team Meeting tomorrow, your input on improving runway safety at Brackett Field is welcome!

POC will host its annual Local Runway Safety Action Team (LRSAT) meeting Thursday, September 5, 2019, 2017, 1030-1330 in the Terminal - 1615 McKinley Ave. La Verne, CA 91750.

Runway Safety embodies a safe flight — both at its start and at its conclusion. It is one of the FAA's highest priorities and encompasses pilots, air traffic controllers, and airport vehicle drivers.

The purpose of this LRSAT meeting is to unite those individuals and organizations that are actively involved in air traffic operations and movement of aircraft, vehicles and equipment on the Airport Operations Area (AOA) and discuss ways to continue improving aviation safety. Key discussion considerations will focus on visual recognition, continued better communications, procedures and awareness.

The FAA’s long term goal is to improve runway safety by decreasing the number and severity of runway incursions, excursions, and other surface incidents. Participants are asked to help develop recommendations and solutions to enhance surface safety. Those recommendations serve as the foundation for a site-specific Runway Safety Action Plan.

I look forward to meeting and exchanging information with all major airport interests including tenants, fixed base operators, airport operations and maintenance personnel.

Please forward onto any interested parties and advise them to contact me or Pete directly to coordinate. I look forward to seeing you soon.
