runway width

runway width

The width of a runway is dependent on the normal prevalent visibility, maneuverability, and stability of aircraft during landing. Values of runway widths recommended by the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) and the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) are given in the tables. All measurements are in meters.
