3 Regional Gliding School Runway Numbering n n A runway number is taken from a bearing of the direction that it points. Numbers are rounded off to the nearest 10°. The numbers are marked at the end of every runway in large white numbers. – –Example n n A runway pointing to 18° magnetic would be numbered 02.

4 Regional Gliding School Runway Markings n n Centreline: – –white lines in the middle of the runway to mark the centre. n n Threshold: – –white line running across the runway. n n Displaced Threshold: – –sometimes the threshold is unsafe for landing so it is moved up to a safe area. 25

5 Regional Gliding School n n Taxiway Centerline: – –yellow line used as a guide to keep the aircraft in the center of the taxiway. n n Hold Lines: – –yellow line running across the taxiway. Aircraft must “hold short” at this point until cleared for take-off. Taxiway Markings 25

6 Regional Gliding School n n Unserviceable: – –marked with large white or yellow X’s on both ends of a runway or taxiway. Red flags are also used to mark unserviceable areas that can be passable with caution. Aerodrome Markings: 25 X

7 Regional Gliding School n n Wind Sock: n n elongates as the wind increases n n if the wind sock is straight out then the wind is 15Kts or more n n if the wing sock is on a 30° down slope then the wind is 6Kts n n if the sock is fluctuating then gusty conditions exist. Wind Indicators

8 Regional Gliding School n n Tetrahedron: n n known as wind T, it is designed like an arrow whose small end points into the wind. n n only tells wind direction, not wind speed. Wind Indicators

9 Regional Gliding School n n Runway thresholds are marked with green lights. n n End of runways are marked with red lights. n n Runways are lined with white lights. n n Taxiways are lined with blue lights. n n Obstructions, such as building and towers, are marked with red or white lights.

21 Regional Gliding School n n Upwind: n n the area opposite to downwind leg n n Crosswind: n n lies across the centre of the landing area perpendicular to the downwind leg n n Downwind: n n flight path opposite to the direction of landing, which is parallel to and a distance off to the side of the runway n n Base n n flight path perpendicular to the landing n n Final n n flight path in the direction of landing The Circuit

22 Regional Gliding School Final Base Crosswind Downwind Upwind Side

23 Regional Gliding School NORDO at a Controlled Airport n NORDO n no radio n aircraft is not capable of communicating over the radio n RONLY n receive only n similar to NORDO except the aircraft can receive messages. Tower may ask for confirmation through a visual sign (i.e. rock the wings)

24 Regional Gliding School The following are authorized light signals to aircraft on the ground: Flashing Green LightCleared to taxi. Steady Green LightCleared to take-off. Flashing Red LightTaxi clear of landing area in use. Steady Red LightStop. Flashing White LightReturn to starting point on airport. Blinking Runway LightsVacate the runway immediately.

25 Regional Gliding School The following are authorized light signals to aircraft in the air: Steady Green LightCleared to land. Steady Red LightDo not land. or Red Flare Flashing Green LightReturn for landing. Alternating Red and Danger. Be on alert. Green Light (US) Flashing Red LightAirport unsafe. Do not land. Red Pyrotechnical LightDo not land for the time being.

26 Regional Gliding SchoolAirworthiness n It is the pilot’s responsibility to ensure that Canadian registered aircraft are fit and safe prior to being flown. n Flight Permit –issued for experimental and specific purpose. n Certification of Airworthiness –the C of A signifies that the aircraft conforms to TC recognized design standards. n Annual Airworthiness Info Report –certifies that airworthiness information is correct. Does not require an inspection, flight test, or certification.

27 Regional Gliding SchoolDocumentation n C - Crew Licenses and Medicals –Pilot License –Medical Certificate –Restricted Radio Operator's Certificate (unless NORDO) n P - POH (Pilot Operating Handbook) n R - Certificate of Registration (C of R) n A - Certificate of Airworthiness (C of A) n I - Liability Insurance n L - Journey Log The following are required to be aboard all aircraft:

39 Regional Gliding School Congratulations!! You have now completed the Aerodromes and Traffic Procedures lesson of the Aeronautical Rules and Facilities Module. Of course, this lesson is always available to you for future reference if required. You are now ready to move along to the next Aeronautical Rules and Facilities lesson you have not completed or to any other module you wish. You can advance to the Self Test Module if you feel ready to challenge the final exam. Good Luck! Aeronautical Rules And Facilities Aerodromes and Traffic Procedures
