Movement Area Driver’s Best Practices and Checklist

In the course of ACI-NA’s participation in The FAA Runway Safety Office’s Runway Safety Council and Root Cause Analysis Team we have become aware of incidents where movement area drivers did not follow generally accepted practices, leading to runway incursions, or near incursions. Working with several member airports, ACI-NA developed a list of generally recognized best practices as an aid to refresh drivers’ awareness of issues associated with driving on the movement area. Knowing the value of checklists in operating an airplane, we also developed a short checklist that can be used prior to entering the movement area. We encourage vehicle operators to review the best practices and have copies of the checklist and their airport diagram available in all vehicles.
