Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently. The line of demarcation between taxiway and ramp is normally a broken single or double yellow line.

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. 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.

These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas. The Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U. This designation doesn’t mean there is no movement, but that either the pilot or some other authority assumes responsibility, or both.

Airport Diagrams

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. The EGCC diagram has numerous “shadow boxes” with important information such as touchdown zone elevation TDZ and localizer frequencies, for example. Looking at the images above, the chatrs shows the aircraft on Taxiway “Delta Two” denoted by the yellow numbers on a black field.

Runways are always designated and normally marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing. This segment will provide basic understanding of airport diagrams to enable pilots to navigate safely and correctly at various airfields. The portrayal of runway markings and orientation is also a faithful chqrts of the real-world airport. You can see from these identifiers that one end of the runway is always the “reciprocal” of the other, or ?

These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online. Runway markings are always white.


Upon completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection. Taxiways and runways are represented only by their letter or numeric labels.

Taxiway markings are always yellow. A chqrts example from the fold-out for KATL is reproduced below the full diagram.

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. Skip to main content. Most have yellow centerline chadts to facilitate remaining in the center of, and following the taxiway in reduced visibility.

You must join, but registration is free and the site is very thorough. Kayl 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 chharts directions to the taxiway represented by the letter. You can see that this diagram is quite detailed and colorized. The hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not stop until after crossing the hold short chwrts fully.

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. The UK diagram shows these quite clearly, while the US diagram makes them a little more difficult to see.

This diagram is smaller, more complex, and a bit more difficult to read. They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary.

The signs in the images above are the universal signs used to denote directions to taxiways and runways. In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting. On the other hand it should be noted that Jeppesen provides larger fold-out chart for many high-density airports as well as “low visibility taxi route” charts and these are much easier to read and interpret.

All of these diagrams, regardless of how colorful or easy kayl read, provide basic information for navigating around an airport, cjarts supplemental information which is either critical or informational.

Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: Look between runways 27L and 27R at taxiways Kilo and Lima However despite these sometime subtle differences, either diagram will facilitate on-airport navigation.

However these are only available by subscription.

Runways may also be used for taxiing aircraft and in some cases for parking aircraft. 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. It is important to note that in many cases, ATC responsibility ends with the transition from taxiway to ramp.

When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation. One significant difference is taxiway hold points: It is approaching an intersection with Taxiway Delta. Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers.

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 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 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.

In this case, the solid lines of the hold short line are toward the aircraft, and it cannot chartz past this point unless a clearance to do so has been received. The quality of diagrams chafts throughout the world, with some providing a general overview of the airport and others more detailed.

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