Three years of recent ASRS reports were reviewed to seek factors contributing to runway incursions and taxi errors. Many factors not commonly discussed in ground safety were found in these 1,049 reports. These factors were then analyzed from a systems perspective, suggesting that all elements of the system, in the broadest sense, need improvement, but as a unified system. It seems unlikely that any meaningful improvements will be achieved without such a systems approach.
