visual runway

visual runway

A runway intended solely for the operation of aircraft using visual approach procedures, with no straight-in instrument approach procedure and no instrument designation indicated on the national authority's approved airport layout plan, military-service-approved military airport layout plan, or planning documents submitted to the national authority by a competent authority. The normal markings for a visual runway include the centerline marking, designation marking, threshold marking on the runway used by international commercial air transports, fixed distance marking on runways that are 4000 ft (1200 m) or longer and used by jet aircraft, holding position markings for taxiway or runway intersections, and holding position markings at runways or runway intersections when the runways are normally used for “land, hold short operation” or taxiing.
