1

What ICAO Annex deals with aerodromes?

14

2

Aerodrome reference codes consist of ... (two elements)

The first represents?

The second represents?

A number and letter

First = runway length

Second = wingspan or outer main gear wheel span

3

Non-instrument runways intended for?

Visual approaches only

4

Precision approach runways minimum equipment?

ILS or MLS

5

Non-precision approach runways require?

An approach aid with at least directional guidance for a straight in approach

6

Minimum width of a 2C, 3A, 3B & 3C runway?

30 m

7

Distance of holding position from runway egde for;

A) runway > 900m

B) runway < 900m

A = 50m

B = 30m

8

What is a runway strip?

An area which includes the runway and stopway, intended to reduce damage to aircraft running off the runway 

9

How for should a runway strip extend beyond a code 2, 3 or 4 runway threshold?

60m

10

How for should a runway strip extend beyond a code 1 runway threshold?

(both instrument and non-instrument)

60m & 30m respectively

11

Width of precision approach runway strip for;

A) code 1 & 2

B) code 3 & 4

A = 75m either side of extended centre line

B = 150m either side of extended centre line

12

Slope changes at the end of an instrument runway should be avoided due to the use of rad alt to determine height. What are the dimensions of the radio altimeter operating area?

300m from threshold x 120m wide (may be reduced to 60m wide in special circumstances provided this will not affect safe operation)

13

Max rate of slope change in rad alt operating area when slope changes cannot be avoided?

2 % per 30m

14

What is a runway end safety area?

Runway end safety area dimensions?

A semi-prepared surface at the end of a runway designed to reduce the damage if an aircraft lands short or over runs the runway

Should extend as far as practicable, but at least 90m and at least twice as wide as the associated runway

15

Where are these holding points?

16

Where are these holding points?

Q image thumb

Cat II & III holding position

17

Where are these holding points?

Q image thumb

Intermediate holding position

18

A clearway must not be greater than ... of the TORA and should extend at least ... either side of the centre line

50%

75m

19

Where a runway has a displaced threshold, how much will LDA be less than TORA?
