Runway Identifier

Near the END of EACH runway, a number will be printed. This number is the Runway Identifier. In this case it is Runway 25.

Runways are identified by TWO methods. One being a Numerical value, while the other a Letter.

The Number can be a value of 1 through 36. these are shortened values of the Runway's magnetic heading (basically average the heading to the nearest 10th degree, then divide by ten). i.e. runway hdg. = 047, Runway ID is Rwy 5. 343 would be Rwy 34.

The Letter is used when there are more than one runways sharing the same Number value. i.e. two parallel runways numbered 15.(see this diagram)

A L is used to identify that that is the LEFT runway.

A R is used to identify that that is the RIGHT runway.

A C is used to identify that that is the CENTRE runway.

The L,R,C applies as if you were on approach for the runway in question.
