It denotes taxiways via replicas of the taxiway markings you would see looking out the cockpit window, yellow against a black background. You can see that this diagram is quite detailed and colorized. 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.
Runway markings are always white. Taxiway markings are always yellow. 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. 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.
Black letters on a yellow background are directions to the taxiway represented by the letter. They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary.
Look between runways 27L and 27R at taxiways Kilo and Lima However despite these sometime subtle differences, either diagram will facilitate on-airport navigation. 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 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. A partial example from the fold-out for KATL is reproduced below the full diagram. Most have yellow centerline markings to facilitate remaining in the center of, and following the taxiway in reduced visibility. Skip to main content.
This diagram is smaller, more kwtl, and a bit more difficult to read. 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 line of demarcation between taxiway and ramp is normally a broken single or double yellow line.
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. This segment will provide basic understanding of airport diagrams to enable pilots to navigate safely and correctly at various airfields.
chatts The centerline lighting, white until ‘ remaining, then alternating red and white, warning of the reduced length, and ultimately all red. However these are only available by subscription. Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, and notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently. By Tom Seeley Purpose: These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online.
The UK diagram shows these quite clearly, while the US diagram makes them a little more difficult to see. 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. 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 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.
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. When more than three charst present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation.
These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas. The portrayal of runway markings and orientation is also a faithful representation of the real-world airport. Charta completion, the pilot should have a clear understanding of the elements of an airport diagram and how to use it. One significant difference is taxiway hold points: Runways may also be used for taxiing aircraft and in some cases for parking aircraft.

The EGCC diagram has numerous “shadow boxes” with important information such as touchdown zone elevation TDZ and localizer frequencies, for example. It is important to note that in many cases, ATC responsibility ends with the transition from taxiway to ramp. You must join, but registration is free and the site is very thorough.
Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers.
In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting. It is approaching chartw intersection with Taxiway Delta. In the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection.
