The FAA airports organization should be commended for continuing to attract talent from the ranks of airport management. Bringing in Jim Krieger as the manager of runway safety from Chicago is a big coup.
His experience out there among take-offs and landings created insights on how best to improve safety. His initiative to reach out to leaders in this arena is the best way to capture critical data about what’s going wrong and what can be fixed. Getting the King Schools, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association and the National Business Aviation Association included in teaching and listening is a great strategy to enhance runway safety performance. Those pipelines are likely to create a two way dialogue that is needed here.
The first of many good initiatives, Mr. Krieger!Share this article:
