Boeing (NYSE: BA) and Embraer S.A. (NYSE: ERJ) today announced that they will provide customers with a shared set of tools, called Runway Situation Awareness Tools, to reduce runway excursions. This further strengthens the collaboration between two of the world's largest aerospace companies.

To significantly reduce runway excursions in the near term, Boeing and Embraer will provide customers with new pilot procedures and a training video on landing performance. In the longer term, the companies will also develop joint technology and systems for the flight deck to improve pilot information about approach and landing.

Based on data analysis of past incidents, the companies believe the Runway Situation Awareness Tools' broad strategy to reduce runway excursions could be utilized by pilots flying other commercial aircraft, supporting overall industry safety.
