precision instrument runway

precision instrument runway

A runway having an operative nonvisual precision approach aid (i.e., instrument landing system) specially marked with non-precision instrument runway indications along with a touchdown zone, fixed-distance markers, and side strips. The normal markings for such runways include the centerline marking, designation marking, fixed-distance marking, touchdown zone marking, side stripes, holding position markings for a taxiway or runway intersection and ILS critical areas, holding position markings at runways or runway intersections when runways are normally used for land, hold-short operations, or taxiing.
