Most have yellow centerline markings to kwtl remaining in the center of, and following the taxiway in reduced visibility. In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting.

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

KATL : Hartsfield – Jackson Atlanta I

The quality of diagrams varies throughout the world, with some providing a general overview of the airport and others more detailed. 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.

Look between runways 27L and 27R at taxiways Kilo and Lima However despite these sometime subtle differences, either diagram will facilitate on-airport navigation. It denotes taxiways via replicas of the taxiway markings you would kahl looking out the cockpit window, yellow against a black background. The Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U.

Airport Diagrams

However these are only available by subscription. In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway chart a runway intersection. Vharts at the images above, the first shows the aircraft on Taxiway “Delta Two” denoted by the yellow numbers on a black field. Black letters on a yellow background are directions to the taxiway represented by the letter. A partial example from the fold-out for KATL is reproduced below the full diagram. These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online.


This segment will provide basic understanding of airport diagrams to enable pilots to navigate safely and correctly at various airfields. All of these diagrams, regardless of how colorful or easy to read, provide basic information for navigating around an airport, and supplemental information which is either critical or informational. 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 signs in the images above are the universal signs used to denote directions to taxiways and runways. The line of demarcation between taxiway and ramp is normally a broken single or double yellow line.

Taxiway markings are always yellow. Runway markings are always white. Runway Lighting Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, turning to yellow as kat departure end of the runway gets closer.

Runways are always designated and normally marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing. Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but latl differently. Taxiways and runways are represented only by their letter or numeric labels. The hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not stop until after crossing the hold short line fully.

cbarts You can see from these identifiers that one end of the runway is always the “reciprocal” of the other, or ? It is approaching an intersection with Taxiway Delta.

They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary. These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas. The solid and dashed black lines indicate a “hold short” location chqrts 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 EGCC diagram fharts numerous “shadow boxes” with important information such as touchdown zone elevation TDZ and localizer frequencies, for example.


Upon completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation. Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: 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. At major airports each airline may have its own “ramp control” and may have a tower-like facility to control movement on its ramp.

You can see that this diagram is quite detailed and colorized. 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. 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.

By Tom Seeley Purpose: One significant difference is taxiway hold points: 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. Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers.

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