The paper reviews the 26 “landing on the taxiway” cases happened between 1982 and 2016 recorded by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) aviation accident/incident database, it evaluates causal and contributing factors such as visibility, navigation, preparation, fatigue, experiences, age and more affecting pilots’ operations. Also, personnel injury/fatality and severity of the aircraft damage are extracted from the NTSB’s accident/incident databases to conduct the inductive research. Some interesting findings in the paper includes the experienced pilots landing on the taxiway, and different trends of mistakes between general aviation (GA) and commercial operation. Based on these findings, the authors have given several recommendations to mitigate the possibility of landing on the taxiway.
