*-Runway protection airspace zones are established to protect airborne aircraft above or near the runway. -None of these runway protection entities have visible markings on the airport. -The Airport Layout plan (ALP) depicts the runway protection areas and zones. -Airport managers must insure all the regulatory standards are met for runway protection. Object Free Areas (OFAs) -The Runway Safety Area (RSA) and the Runway Object Free Area ROFA are OFAs. - Object Free Area (OFA). An area centered on the ground on a runway , taxiway, or taxilane centerline provided to enhance the safety of aircraft operations by remaining clear of objects, except for objects that need to be located in the OFA for air navigation or aircraft ground maneuvering purposes. -Object free areas require an air traffic control (ATC) clearance to enter.

-The RSA is an OFA. - Runway Safety Area (RSA). A defined surface surrounding the runway prepared or suitable for reducing the risk of damage to aircraft in the event of an undershoot, overshoot, or excursion from the runway. -ICAO refers to a similar ‘Runway Strip’ and ‘Runway End Safety Area’ -The RSA is the foundational safety area surrounding the runway. -The RSA belongs to the airplane taking off or landing. The only thing allowed in the RSA while an aircraft is taking off or landing is something that must be there for the aircraft’s use, i.e., fixed-by-function. -ATC controls entrance into the RSA for all airplanes and vehicles. cc60f46e26bd3423967f155480fb1e9c38769108.docx 5 Spr 1 2018 Runway Safety Areas

--RSA outlined in RED . RSA DIMensions outlined in GREEN . ---DIMensions obtained from Table 3-5 Runway design standards matrix -The RSA must be: --Clear of objects except for objects that need to be located in the RSA because of their function, i.e., fixed by function. ---The RSA is an object free area (OFA). --- Object. Includes, but is not limited to, above ground structures, Navigational Aids (NAVAIDs), equipment, vehicles, natural growth, terrain, and parked or taxiing aircraft. --- Object Free Area (OFA). An area centered on the ground on a runway , taxiway, or taxilane centerline provided to enhance the safety of aircraft operations by remaining clear of objects, except for objects that need to be located in the OFA for air navigation or aircraft ground maneuvering purposes. ---The RSA is in a “movement area” controlled by air traffic control. ATC clearance is required to enter a runway or taxiway in the RSA. --Capable of supporting ---Occasional passage of aircraft without causing damage to the aircraft. ---Snow removal equipment. cc60f46e26bd3423967f155480fb1e9c38769108.docx 8 Spr 1 2018
