In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting. Runways may also be used for taxiing chsrts and in some cases for parking aircraft.

This designation doesn’t mean there is no movement, but that either the pilot or some other authority assumes responsibility, or both. Pilots anticipating movement at high-density airports should anticipate such instructions and be prepared to read them back, then follow them as instructed, especially during periods of heavy traffic. You can see from these identifiers that one end of the runway is always the “reciprocal” of the other, or ?

These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas. Runway markings are always white. The hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not stop until after crossing the hold short line fully.

The EGCC diagram has numerous “shadow boxes” with important information such as touchdown zone elevation TDZ and localizer frequencies, for example. Runway Lighting Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, turning to yellow as the departure end of the runway gets closer.

The portrayal of runway markings and orientation is also a faithful representation of the real-world airport. The solid and dashed black lines indicate a “hold short” location of a kxtl approaching a runway, where you must stop if the solid line is nearest you, or which you must cross if exiting a runway and the dashed lines are nearest you. At major airports each airline may have its own “ramp control” and may have a tower-like facility to control movement on its ramp.


Airport Diagrams

Upon completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. Runways are always designated and ccharts marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing. The quality of diagrams varies throughout the world, with some providing a general overview of the airport and others more detailed.

All of these diagrams, regardless of how colorful or easy to read, provide basic information for navigating around an fharts, and supplemental information which is either critical or informational. When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation.

Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently. Taxiways are designated charrts provided at airports to enable aircraft to reposition from the runway to their final position on the field, or vice versa.

In this case, the solid lines of the hold short line are toward the aircraft, and it cannot proceed past this point unless a clearance to do so has been received. They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary. Looking at the images above, the first shows the aircraft on Taxiway “Delta Two” denoted by the yellow numbers on a black field. Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers.

You can see that this diagram is quite detailed and colorized. It is approaching an intersection with Taxiway Delta.

Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, turning to yellow as the departure end of the runway gets closer. It denotes taxiways via replicas of the taxiway markings you would see looking out the cockpit window, yellow against a black background. Black letters on a yellow background are directions to the taxiway represented by the cahrts.


The centerline lighting, white until ‘ remaining, then alternating red and white, warning of the reduced length, and ultimately all red.

In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection. The signs in the images above are the universal signs used to denote directions to taxiways and runways. These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available kat. Taxiway markings are always yellow. The line of demarcation between taxiway and ramp is normally a broken single or double yellow line.

The Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U. However these are only available by subscription. By Tom Seeley Purpose: Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: A RUNWAY is differentiated from other surfaces on the airport by being the only surface an aircraft other than a helicopter either lands on or takes off from. At the other end of taxiways are “Ramps” which are not really ramps at all, but different surfaces that denote where the taxiway ends and the terminal or gate area begins.

Most have yellow centerline markings to facilitate remaining in the center of, and following the taxiway in reduced visibility. Look between runways 27L and 27R at taxiways Chrts and Lima However despite chzrts sometime subtle differences, either diagram will facilitate on-airport navigation.
