Runway Safety Standards
Home Page » Rules & Regulations

According to ICAO standards, the runway friction rate of the airports must be 0,74 on new runways. This rate is the friction coefficient of the runway. Statistics from 1995 up to today, suggest that over 40 planes per year have been victims of accidents caused by runways with sub standards friction level.
