A Firm Favourite for RESA’s

Lodz International Airport’s faith in Aviation Fibreturf paid off soon after the installation of their new RESA when a 737-8AS accidentally left the runway while lining up for take-off.  Heavily laden with a full compliment of passengers, luggage and fuel, the airliner came to a successful and rapid halt while hardly disturbing the surface of the reinforced rootzone.  Only the pilot’s attempt to perform a tight turn on the RESA prevented the aircraft returning to the runway without additional assistance.

The secret of Aviation Fibreturf lies in its unique cross linked polymer fibre matrix with grass being an aesthetic component – a fact demonstrated at Lodz.
