Safety statistics show that runway excursions, the event in which an aircraft veers off or overruns the runway surface during either takeoff or landing, are the most common type of accident reported annually, in the European region and worldwide. There are at least two runway excursions each week worldwide. Runway excursions can result in loss of life and/or damage to aircraft, buildings or other items struck by the aircraft. Excursions are estimated to cost the global industry about $900M every year. There have also been a number of fatal runway excursion accidents.
