Don't become a victim or a cause of runway incursions! Are you familiar with the problem of "runway incursions?" Have you ever had a
runway incursion? A runway incursion is "Any occurrence at an airport involving
an aircraft, vehicle, person, or object on the ground that creates a collision
hazard or results in a loss of separation with an aircraft taking off, intending
to takeoff, landing, or intending to land."
All pilots can agree on one fact: It’s easy to become disoriented, overloaded, or misunderstand communications
when operating on the ground. Yet ground operations are one of the most critical
phases of any flight. The fact is, runway and airport safety is getting worse.
As of December 1, 2011, the number of runway incursions and other ground
incidents is rising.
What can you do to help ensure that you won't cause a runway incursion in the
future? What can you do to help prevent being a victim of a runway incursion?
Getting Around On The Ground 3.0 With Airport Simulator is the only
interactive, multimedia tool available that teaches the types of airport
markings, signage, and lighting. It also goes beyond simple technical knowledge
by outlining hazards, safety tips, and procedures that will help keep you aware,
knowledgeable, and safe on the ground.
Now with Airport Simulator
Learning the theory is one thing. Practicing it is another. That's where Airport
Simulator comes in. Airport Simulator is a real-time, 3-D, virtual airport taxi
simulator. Get the ATIS, exchange communications with Air Traffic Control, and
follow taxi instructions including hold short and runway crossing tasks. The
goal is to practice taxiing so as to NOT cause a runway incursion. Two airports
and forty challenging taxi scenarios are included. And, there's no need for
special hardware such as rudder pedals, because you control your aircraft with
just a few keys on your keyboard. It's easy!

Should Be Part of Every Pilots Training Program!!! by Glenn from Grand Prairie TX USA Pros: Concise and to the point, Not puzzeling. Cons: none Review: With the ever increasing number of pieces of information for a pilot or student pilot to learn, this video format method of teaching subject matter, is essential. There is only so many hours in a day and getting the most out of them is taking on a greater level of importantance.
