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.

One significant difference is taxiway hold points: Skip to main content. 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.

They have different marking from runways, and are always identified by letters, with numbers if necessary.

Looking at the images above, the first shows the aircraft on Taxiway “Delta Two” denoted by the yellow numbers on a latl field. Runways are always designated and normally marked by a one or two number label, loosely associated with their compass bearing.

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. Briefly in the image above you can see runway edge identifier lights that are white, turning to yellow as the departure end of kafl runway gets closer. Touchdown zone elevation, lighting, aktl notes are included just as in the UK diagram, but presented differently.

This segment will provide basic understanding of airport diagrams to enable pilots to navigate safely and correctly at various airfields. 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 signs in the images above are the universal signs used to denote directions to taxiways and runways.


The Atlanta-Hartsfield diagram is representative of most U. 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.

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

Runways, Taxiways and Ramps: The line of demarcation between taxiway and ramp is normally a broken kagl or double yellow line. Black numbers on a yellow background indicate directions to the runway s represented by the numbers.

Airport Diagrams

Taxiways and runways are represented only by their letter or numeric labels. However these are only available by subscription. You must join, but registration is free and the site is very thorough. You can see from these identifiers that one end of ccharts runway is always the “reciprocal” of the other, or ? 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 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. 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.


When more than kat are present, the others are given numerical designators -close- to their geographical orientation.

The UK diagram shows these quite clearly, while the US diagram makes them a little more difficult to see. These are often referred to as “non-movement” areas. A partial example from the fold-out for KATL is reproduced below the full diagram.

The hold short lines indicate the aircraft has just departed the runway and should not stop until after crossing the hold short line fully.

Runway markings are always white.

By Tom Seeley Purpose: This diagram is smaller, more complex, and a bit more difficult to read. These can be found in the various charting providers NOS, Jeppesen but are also largely available online. 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.

Kaatl the second, the aircraft is on a taxiway approaching a runway intersection. 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 In the upper right of the image you can see all blue taxiway lighting.

It is approaching an intersection with Taxiway Delta. It denotes taxiways via replicas of the taxiway markings you would see looking out the cockpit window, yellow against a black background.

Taxiway markings are always yellow. The quality of diagrams varies cnarts the world, with some providing a general overview of the airport and others more detailed.
