Wrong runway alignments and landings

Pilots using the airport may experience several issues, including:

  • Wrong surface and runway alignments
  • Wrong runway landings
  • Flying through the parallel final, then turning back to the correct final

These are documented events. Many undocumented events are also noticed and corrected by air traffic controllers and pilots. Wrong runway landings and alignments pose a significant safety risk. Aircraft using the wrong runway could collide with other planes or vehicles.

We ask all pilots to read and follow this FAA letter about the issue.
