Foreign Object Debris and Damage Prevention
A Quick Look At How A Program To Control Airport FOD Is Most Effective
Foreign object debris (FOD) at airports can cause damage that costs airlines, airports, and airport tenants millions of dollars every year. FOD is any object that does not belong in or near airplanes and, as a result, can injure airport or airline personnel and damage airplanes. A FOD-prevention program of training, facility inspection, maintenance, and coordination between all affected parties can minimize FOD and its effects.
Foreign Object Debris Characterization at a Large International Airport
Foreign Object Debris (FOD) And Its Corresponding Damage Is A Well-Recognized Threat To Aircraft Safety.
In support of the Federal Aviation Administration FOD research program, the University of Illinois Center of Excellence for Airport Technology (CEAT) in cooperation with the staff of the Chicago Department of Aviation, O’Hare International Airport (ORD) Operations, initiated an effort to characterize the FOD found on active runways at a major civil airport. The primary objective of the study was to characterize FOD over time by analyzing the FOD collected by common mechanical FOD removal devices during routine runway inspections.

FAA Advisory On Airport Foreign Object Debris
The guidance in this AC is particularly applicable to airport owners and operators, air carrier station managers, and general aviation operators. Individuals in these positions may then be able to communicate to apron crews, maintenance technicians, and aircraft servicing personnel the safety hazards posed by FOD.
