Providing Swift and Cost-Efficient EMAS Solutions: Runway Safe’s Commitment to Airport Excellence
When it comes to runway overruns and EMAS arresting systems, Runway Safe is dedicated to ensuring the highest value for our airport partners. Our focus is not only on safety but also on minimizing downtime and costs for airports. Here’s how we deliver exceptional value to our customers:
Efficient EMAS Support: Minimizing Airport Downtime
In the unfortunate event of an overrun into an EMAS, our expert Life Cycle Management team swings into action promptly. Our goal is clear: to save our airport partners valuable time and money by minimizing runway downtime.
Overruns and Runway Disruptions: Understanding EMASMAX Systems
Historically, runway overruns can disrupt airport operations. However, with our EMASMAX arresting system, we ensure that the aircraft is swiftly removed from the EMAS within hours, minimizing runway disruption.
Active Communication and Assistance: Guiding Our Airport Partners
As part of our EMAS arresting system’s life cycle management initiative, we communicate actively with EMAS owners during overrun events. We provide clear guidance on how we can support them when an aircraft overruns into an EMASMAX arresting system.
Rapid Response and Damage Assessment: Swift On-Site Evaluation
Upon receiving notification from the airport, we dispatch our experts to the site within 24-48 hours. Their mission is twofold: to assess the damage scope and assist the airport in understanding the necessary steps for repair.
Reopening Runways: Expert Guidance on NOTAM Language
After removing the aircraft, we assist airports in issuing a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) to inform users of the reduced EMAS arresting system’s performance. This NOTAM is only in effect until the EMAS arresting system repairs are completed, ensuring a smooth return to normal operations.
Meeting FAA Requirements: Timely Repairs and Operational Considerations
While FAA guidelines recommend repairing the EMAS arresting system within 45 days, it’s important to note that this is a material specification, not an operational requirement. Airports are encouraged to repair systems promptly, but there are no penalties for exceeding the 45-day limit.
Targeted Damage Assessment: Precise Repairs by Runway Safe
Our damage assessment process ensures that only the damaged material is replaced, saving our partners unnecessary expenses.
Insurance Claim Advocacy: Encouraging Timely Repairs and Cost Coverage
We advise airports to consider an aircraft overrun as an insurance claim against the aircraft operator. This encourages insurers to expedite repairs, with all costs covered by the responsible party’s insurance.
Timetable for Repair Completion: Collaborative Planning
We work closely with EMAS owners to establish a repair timetable based on the damage extent. Our strategy encompasses everything from materials to project supervision, ensuring a smooth repair process.
Coordinated Repairs for Full Performance: Expertise in IMRO
Our Installation, Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (IMRO) team collaborates with airports to restore the damaged system to its full performance capability. This coordinated effort ensures a seamless return to normal operations.
At Runway Safe, our mission is to provide efficient EMAS solutions that benefit our airport partners. We prioritize safety, cost-efficiency, and minimal downtime to ensure that our customers receive the utmost value from our services.
