The UK diagram shows these quite clearly, while the US diagram makes kato a little more difficult to see. Taxiway markings are always yellow. Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently.

Look between runways 27L and 27R at taxiways Kilo and Lima However despite these sometime subtle differences, either diagram will facilitate on-airport navigation. 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. You must join, but registration is free and the site is very thorough. Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting.

Airport Diagrams

A RUNWAY is differentiated from other surfaces chqrts the airport by being the only surface an aircraft other than a helicopter either lands on or takes off from.

At major airports each airline may have its own “ramp control” cyarts may have a tower-like facility to control movement on its ramp. When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation. A partial example from the fold-out for KATL is reproduced below the full diagram. 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.


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. In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection.

The line of demarcation between taxiway and ramp is normally a broken single or double yellow line. The EGCC diagram has numerous “shadow boxes” with important information such as touchdown zone elevation TDZ and localizer frequencies, for example.

Most have yellow centerline markings to facilitate remaining in chzrts center of, and following the taxiway in reduced visibility. You can see that this diagram is quite detailed and colorized.

The quality of diagrams varies throughout the world, with some providing a general overview of the airport and others more detailed. Runways are always designated and normally marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing.

The portrayal of runway markings and orientation is also a faithful representation of the real-world airport. The Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U.

These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online. Skip to main content.


They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary. Upon completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. All of these chwrts, 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.

It denotes taxiways via replicas of the taxiway markings you would see looking out the cockpit window, yellow against a black background. However these are only available by subscription.

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. One significant difference is taxiway kal points: Black letters on a yellow background are directions to the taxiway represented by the letter. Runway markings are always white. Looking at the images above, the first shows the aircraft on Taxiway “Delta Two” denoted by the yellow numbers on a black field.

It is important to note that in many cases, ATC responsibility ends with the transition from taxiway to ramp. By Tom Seeley Purpose:
