1 Basic Principles of Airmanship Airfields

2 Objectives Understand Airfield Layouts Know how runways are numbered Know how runways & taxiways are marked – by day and night Know how approach lights guide an aircraft into land

3 Types of Airfield Grass Triangle Pattern Main Instrument Runway

4 Wind Speed 20 Knots Airspeed 80 Knots Ground Speed = 60 Knots Taking off into Wind

5 Grass Airfield

6 Triangle Pattern Airfield

7 Types of Airfield What are the advantages and disadvantages of: Grass airfields? Triangle pattern airfields?

8 Modern Main Instrument Runway

9 Major Airport

10 Modern Main Instrument Runway

11 Aircraft are vulnerable to attack if lined up!

12 Aircraft Dispersal (Battle of Britain 1940)

13 Hardened Aircraft Shelter (HAS) 2004

14 Exterior of Hardened Aircraft Shelter

15 Damaged HAS in Iraq 2003

16 QRA Take Off

17 Runways numbered by Magnetic Compass Bearing

18 Runway 22 heading South West Runway 04 (Reciprocal) heading North East

19 Runways numbered by Magnetic Compass Bearing

20 Runway 22 is heading 220°

21 Air Traffic Control

23 Windsock – Wind Direction & Strength

24 Runway & Taxiway Markings Runways marked in white Taxiways marked in yellow

25 Taxi way Markings - Yellow

26 Markings on Approach to Runway

27 Runway Threshold

28 Threshold and Displaced Threshold markings

29 Taxiway Displacement Markings Threshold Markings Sterile Area

30 Airfield Lighting

31 Taxiway Lighting – Blue Edge, Green Centre

32 PAPIs (Red/White) Threshold (Green) Approach Lights (White) Airfield Approach Lights

33 Threshold Green Lights White Runway lights Sterile Area Red Obstruction Lights

34 Precision Approach Path Indicators (PAPIs) Threshold Lights High Visibility “T” Approach Lights

35 Runway Lighting

36 Lining up on Approach

37

38 Landing on Runway 15 – Birmingham Airport

40 Why are taxiway lights and markings so important?

41

42 Objectives Understand Airfield Layouts Know how runways are numbered Know how runways & taxiways are marked – by day and night Know how approach lights guide an aircraft into land

43 Questions?

44 Questions What does “HAS” stand for? What colour are obstruction lights? What colour are threshold lights? How are taxiways marked in daylight? What colours are taxiway lights? What is used on an airfield to show wind direction?

45 Questions How are runways numbered? True or False: Pilots will usually choose to take off with the wind behind them. What is a “Sterile Area”? How is a Sterile Area marked?
