Airport friction testing projects

Runway Safety is one of the aviation industry’s largest ongoing compliance thresholds, specified by CASA and ICAO as being crucial to passenger and user safety. Built up rubber from landing aircraft can create friction hazards in wet weather, and regular friction audits allows all major airports to keep ahead of this ongoing maintenance issue.
