close to magnetic east), and Runway One Seven for 168 degrees. Thus, Runway One Zero (100°) becomes Runway Two Eight (280°) when used in the opposite direction and Runway One Eight (180°) becomes Runway Three Six (360°). For runways less than 100° include the leading "zero", e.g. Runway Zero Two or Runway Zero One Left. If there is more than one runway pointing in the same direction (parallel runways), each runway is identified by appending Left, Centre and Right to the Runway number. For example, at Kolkata Airport, the Runways One Nine Left (19L), Zero One Right (01R), and One Nine Right (19R). Runway Zero One Left (01L). From left to right – A pair of parallel runways 35L/17R & 35R/17L. For aircraft it is advantageous to perform takeoffs and landings into the wind to reduce take off roll and reduce the ground speed needed to attain flying speed. Larger airports usually may have more than one runway in different directions, so that one can be (c) UPES, Not for Reproduction/ Sale

Airports with one runway are often constructed to be aligned with the prevailing wind. Runway dimensions vary from as small as 800 ft (244 m) long and 25 ft (8 m) wide in smaller general aviation airports, to 18,000 ft (5,486 m) long and 250 ft (76 m) wide at large international airports built to accommodate large passenger jets. In India major passenger airports are having runways with length 4500 ft to less than 13000 ft. Runway dimensions can be measured in feet or in meters depending on your location in the world. Types of Runways Runways can be further categorized into the following types: 1. Non-instrument Runway: A runway intended for the operation of aircraft using visual approach procedures. 2. Instrument Runway: One of the following types of runways intended for the operation of aircraft using instrument approach procedures: (a) Non-precision approach runway: An instrument runway served by visual aids and a non-visual aid providing at least directional guidance adequate for a straight-in approach. (b) Precision approach runway, category I: An instrument runway served by ILS and/or MLS and visual aids intended for operations with a decision height not lower than 60 m (200 ft) and either a visibility not less than 800 m or a runway visual range not less than 550 m. (c) Precision approach runway, category II: An instrument runway served by ILS and/or MLS and visual aids intended for operations with a decision height lower than 60 m (200 ft) but not lower than 30 m (100 ft) and a runway visual range not less than 350 m. (d) Precision approach runway, category III: An instrument runway served by ILS and/or MLS to and along the surface of the runway and: (i) intended for operations with a decision height lower than 30 m (100 ft), or no decision height and a runway visual range not less than 200 m.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
