Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ)

Sarasota/Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) is a medium sized primarily business and general aviation facility. It does have a modest air taxi/air carrier operation as well. Located on Florida's west coast and some 30 miles south of the larger Tampa International Airport, it is a convenient starting point for international business and GA flights. The airport configuration consists two intersecting runways. View a printable Pilot Handbook of the SRQ information found on this Web page. 


Know Before You Go

  • SRQ consists of two intersecting RWYs 04/22 and 14/32.
  • Parallel TWY A runs the entire length of RWY 14/32 and has been the source of several wrong surface misidentification events.
  • FBOs are located on the north, east and west sides of the airport and the passenger terminal is located to the south.
  • HS 1 is an area of 4 intersecting TWYs and 2 intersecting RWYs, which increases the incursion risk.
    • For example - aircraft leaving the FBO (located on the west side of the airport) and taxiing to RWY 32 for an intersection departure at TWY D, have missed turning on TWY D and continued across RWY 04/22. 
  • Some aircraft rolling out on RWY 14/32 and clearing at TWY C2, are cleared to taxi via TWY G then left on TWY H, or TWY D to parking.  Aircraft have missed the turn and continued on TWY H and crossed RWY 04/22.
