If you have spent even a slight modicum of time around flight simulation in the past, or even just aviation in general, you will no doubt have heard the term “runway incursion” on more than one occasion. This is when an airport suffers an incident involving anything from a vehicle, object or person on the ground that creates some kind of obstacle on the runways. This could, in turn, impede other aircraft from being able to take off or even land.

Therefore, it’s vital to always be listening to the information that is being re-directed to you by the airport. With the numbers of incidents on runways rising every year since 2011 in the real-world, the best thing to do is go away and practice what you are struggling with.
