Alexandria, VA, June 22, 2012 - The Air Charter Safety Foundation (ACSF) monitors accidents and incidents involving business aviation aircraft. On June 18, 2012, a turbo-jet aircraft went off the end of the runway after landing at the Dekalb-Peachtree Airport, near Atlanta, Georgia. The ACSF looks forward to the accident's investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board, which will determine the probable cause of this event.
As a precautionary measure, the ACSF recommends that all operators have their flight crews review Federal Aviation Administration Advisory Circular 91-79, Runway Overrun Prevention, which addresses landing performance and stabilized approaches along with other available resources, such as operator procedures for stabilized approaches. The advisory circular is available by clicking here.
