Audit Initiated of FAA’s Runway Safety Initiatives

Project ID: 

The Office of Inspector General is initiating an audit on the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) runway safety efforts. Runway incursions—incidents involving unauthorized aircraft, vehicles, or people on a runway—increased by nearly 53 percent between fiscal years 2011 and 2015. In 2015, FAA initiated a Call to Action forum that focused on developing short-, medium-, and long-term initiatives for addressing the increase in runway incursions. The objective of our audit is to evaluate FAA’s progress in implementing initiatives to improve runway safety.
