Know Before You Go

  • There are 3 areas of which pilots must be aware.
    • The Hold Sort Line at RWY 33
    • The grass RWY 07/25
    • The slanted TWY A
  • There is a unique marking system on RWY 15/33. When aircraft are taxiing south on RWY 15 and are instructed to hold short of RWY 6/24, there are clear markings on the runway to indicate where pilots should stop.
  • If taxiing north on RWY 33 and instructions to hold short of RWY 6/24 are provided, no markings exist.
  • If specific instructions are not provided by ATC, pilots should ask where they should hold on the runway.
  • The grass RWY 7/25 is 1358 feet and is parallel to RWY 6/24 and between TWY G and RWY 15/33.
  • The approach end of RWY 25 is located 500’ west of RWY 15/33.  Pilots need to understand the cones, stakes and other markings on the grass runway to avoid landing well short of the established threshold and within the established area.
  • There is no visual vertical guidance to RWY 7/25. Pilots need to adjust glide path to land beyond the threshold of RWY 25 and within the defined grass strip markings.
  • TWY A slants toward the approach end of RWY 6. Because this can bring aircraft on the TWY too close to aircraft for safe operations, the hold short line is located just beyond TWY H and is marked and also has wig-wag lights for identification.
