These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online. Runways are always designated and normally marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing. When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation.

This diagram is smaller, more complex, and a bit more difficult to read.

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. The Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U. Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, kafl to yellow as the departure end of the runway gets closer. 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.

Taxiway markings are always yellow. Black letters on a yellow background are directions to the taxiway represented by the chzrts. 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 kaatl area begins. The quality of diagrams varies kkatl the world, with some providing a general overview of the airport and others more detailed.

It is important to note that in many cases, ATC responsibility ends with the transition from taxiway to ramp. Taxiways and runways are represented only by their letter or numeric labels.

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 Kilo and Lima However despite these sometime subtle differences, either diagram will facilitate on-airport navigation.

On the other hand it should be noted that Jeppesen provides larger fold-out diagrams for many high-density airports as well as “low visibility taxi route” charts and these are much easier to read and interpret. The line of demarcation kkatl taxiway and ramp is normally a broken single or double yellow line.

These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas. The solid and dashed black lines indicate a “hold short” location of a taxiway 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.

The signs in the images above are the universal signs used to denote directions to taxiways and runways. At major airports each airline may have its own “ramp control” and may have a tower-like facility to control movement on its ramp. The hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not stop until after crossing the hold short line fully.

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.

This segment will provide basic understanding of airport diagrams to enable pilots to navigate safely and correctly at various airfields.

Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers. Runways may also be used for taxiing aircraft and in some cases for parking aircraft.

They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary. One significant difference is taxiway hold points: By Tom Seeley Purpose: The EGCC diagram has numerous “shadow boxes” with important information such as touchdown zone elevation TDZ and localizer frequencies, for example.


Again, as in the KATL case, you can see that the other runways are referred to as 26R and 26L, and the farthest south runway is Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and kztl are included just chqrts in the UK diagram, but presented differently.

You can see that this diagram is quite detailed and colorized. The UK diagram shows these quite clearly, while the US diagram makes them a little more difficult to see.

You must join, but registration is free and the site is very thorough. You can see from these identifiers that one end of the runway is always the “reciprocal” of the other, or ? Looking at the images above, the first shows the aircraft on Taxiway “Delta Two” denoted by the yellow numbers on a black field. In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection.

However these are only available by subscription. The portrayal of runway markings and orientation is also a faithful representation of the real-world airport. The centerline lighting, white until ‘ remaining, then alternating red and white, warning of the reduced length, and ultimately all red. Upon completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting.

It denotes taxiways via replicas of the taxiway markings you would see looking out the cockpit window, yellow against a black background.

It is approaching an intersection with Taxiway Delta. A partial example from the fold-out for KATL is reproduced below the full diagram. Taxiways are designated surfaces provided at airports to enable aircraft to reposition from the runway to their final position on the field, or vice versa.
