Definitions - For purposes of this Rule, the following definitions shall apply: APPROACH/DEPARTURE ZONE OF AN AIRPORT - That area with an inner edge located 60 meters from the end of the runways, perpendicular and symmetrical about the prolongation of the runway centerline, both sides of which have a divergence of 12.5% towards the outside, and with the inner edge as the short base of the isosceles trapezoid thus formed. INNER EDGE - A line perpendicular to the prolongation of the runway centerline and 60 meters from the end of the runway. It is the short base of the issoceles trapezoid formed by the approach/departure zone, having a length as follows: a) 150 meters for runways less than 1,500 meters long; b) 300 meters for runways 1,500 meters long or more. TRANSITION SURFACE - A specified surface sloping upwards and outwards from the edge of the approach/departure zone and from a line originating at the end of the inner edge, drawn parallel to the runway centerline, having a slope of 14.3% (1:7). The outer limit of the transition surface shall be determined by its intersection with the plane of the inner horizontal surface.
