Video tip – Runway markings and symbols

Not all sections of the runway are created equal, and the FAA uses various symbols and markings painted directly on the pavement to indicate each segment’s purpose. This week’s tip takes a closer look at displaced thresholds, blastpads, EMAS and closed runway signage so you’ll be well-prepared on what to do when you see them in person at the airport.

The video clip below is from Sporty’s complete Learn to Fly Course.
