Skip to main content. 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 This designation doesn’t mean there is no movement, but that either the pilot or some other authority assumes responsibility, or both. One significant difference is taxiway hold points: Most have yellow centerline markings to facilitate remaining in the center of, and following the taxiway in reduced visibility.

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

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

KATL : Hartsfield – Jackson Atlanta I

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

The centerline lighting, white until ‘ remaining, then alternating red and white, warning of the reduced length, and ultimately all red. 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 hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not stop until after crossing the hold short line fully. 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.


You must join, but registration is free and the site is very thorough. In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting. At the other end of taxiways are “Ramps” which are not really ramps at all, but different surfaces that denote aktl the taxiway ends and the terminal or kkatl area begins. 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.

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

The signs in the images above are the universal signs used to denote directions to taxiways and runways. However these are only available by subscription. In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection. You chwrts see from these identifiers that one end of the runway is always the “reciprocal” of the other, or ?

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.

It is important to note that in many cases, ATC responsibility ends with the transition from taxiway to ramp. It denotes taxiways via replicas of the taxiway markings you would see looking out the cockpit window, yellow against a black background.

Look between runways 27L and 27R at taxiways Kilo and Lima However despite these sometime subtle differences, either diagram will facilitate on-airport navigation. Runways are always designated and normally marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing.

Runways may also be used for taxiing aircraft and in some cases for parking aircraft. Looking at the images above, the first shows the aircraft on Taxiway charst Two” denoted by the yellow numbers on a black field.

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

Upon completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. 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. The portrayal of runway markings and orientation is also a faithful representation of the real-world airport. Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers.


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.

Taxiway markings are always yellow. Runway markings are always white.

These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas. By Tom Seeley Purpose: A partial example from the fold-out for KATL is reproduced below the full diagram.

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. 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.

Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently. Taxiways and runways are represented only by their letter or numeric labels. 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.

Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: This diagram is smaller, more complex, and a bit more difficult to read. It is approaching an intersection with Taxiway Delta. When more than three are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation. They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary.

Black letters on a yellow background are directions to the taxiway represented by the letter.
