Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)
Philadelphia International Airport is a major metropolitan airport. Primarily serving air carriers, it also has a robust cargo operation as well as a vibrant high-end general aviation community. Three parallel, one intersecting runway, and the associated complex system of taxiways can make Philadelphia International Airport a challenge for even the most experienced pilot. Additional preparation and increased awareness needs to be exercised while visiting the airport.
The single FBO at Philadelphia International Airport is located on the northeast corner of the airport. Preplanning taxi routes to and from that facility will help simplify ground operations.
