Visual Runway Markings

March, 3, 2019 by

Visual runways are used at small airstrips and are usually just a strip of grass, gravel, ice, asphalt, or concrete. Although there are usually no markings on a visual runway, they may have threshold markings, designators, and centerlines. Additionally, in the real world, they do not provide an instrument-based landing procedure; pilots must be able to see the runway to use it.
