Upon completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. Runways may also be used for taxiing aircraft and in some cases for parking aircraft.

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

At major airports each airline may have its own “ramp control” and may have a tower-like facility to control movement on its ramp.

KATL : Hartsfield – Jackson Atlanta I

However kafl are only available by cahrts. The line of demarcation between taxiway and ramp is normally a chars single or double yellow line. Runway markings are always white. One significant difference is taxiway hold jatl Taxiways and runways are represented only by their letter or numeric labels.

Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently. In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting. 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 Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U. 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.

The EGCC diagram has numerous “shadow boxes” with important information such as touchdown zone elevation TDZ and localizer frequencies, for example.

This segment will provide basic understanding of airport diagrams to enable katk to navigate safely and correctly at various airfields. Skip to main content. 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. 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.

It is approaching an intersection with Taxiway Delta. Black letters on a yellow background are directions to the taxiway represented chwrts the letter. This diagram is smaller, more complex, and a bit more difficult to read.

This designation doesn’t mean there is no movement, but that either the pilot or some other authority assumes responsibility, or both.

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.


Airport Diagrams

They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary. When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation. These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online.

In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection. Taxiway markings are always yellow. 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 hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not stop until after crossing the hold short line fully. The signs in the images above are the universal signs used to denote directions to taxiways and runways.

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 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. 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.
