Know Before You Go

  • Closely spaced, staggered, parallel RWYs 14L/32R and 14R/32L
  • RWY 14L/32R is noticeably narrower and shorter than RWY 14R/32L
  • Hot Spot 1 – TWY Z appears to be an extension of TWY B however TWY Z can only be used with prior permission from Airport Management. When taxiing to RWY 14 R do not continue beyond TWY B1 without permission.
  • Hot Spot 2 – TWY A9 wrong direction departure problems here.
  • Note - TWY A centerline seems to lines up with RWY 32R.  This makes aircraft departing on RWY 14L appear to be taking off over TWY A.
  • Hot Spot 3 – TWY B5 is a Helicopter Landing Area – Pilots taxiing north or south on TWY B must have clearance to cross Hold Short Markings on TWY B.
