Please read and share the following important meeting invitation from Chris Burtrum, FAA Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) Manager for Palo Alto Airport (PAO):
Runway incursions remain a serious concern nationally. One important component of our ongoing efforts to improve surface safety at PAO Airport involves conducting a Runway Safety Action Team (RSAT) meeting at least once each year. In conjunction with airport management, we will be conducting a local RSAT meeting on 08/29/2023. The meeting is scheduled from (1000-1230), and will be held at 1901 Embarcadero Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94303 or available on TEAMS (virtual).
The purpose of this RSAT 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). We look for participation from all major airport interests including tenants, fixed base operators, airport operations and maintenance personnel. 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. You are cordially invited to join us.
Your participation is important and your input is welcomed. Please RSVP to Chris Burtrum at [email address redacted; information and/or questions may be forwarded via the PAAA contact page]. Include the name, organization, phone number and email address of those who will be attending.
