Airport Signs and Markings
Do you know all your airport signs and markings, and how they affect your movement of you and your aircraft around the airport?
Date and Time:
Saturday, December 19, 2020, starting at 12:00 Pacific Standard Time (13:00 MST; 14:00 CST; 15:00 EST; 10:00 HST; 11:00 AKST; 13:00 Arizona; 20:00 GMT)
Kyle Smathers
Brief Description:

Pop quiz: What is the new ICAO standard marking for a taxiway approaching a runway?  What is the difference between a relocated threshold and a displaced threshold and what does that indicate to pilots?What is a runway approach holding sign and what are pilots expected to do?

Most pilots have an operational knowledge of the most common runway signs and markings, but if you travel to a larger airport, are you knowledgeable about some of the less common signs and markings? If it has been awhile since you sat through ground school, you may want to join us for a refresher on airport signs and markings. In this safety seminar, we will review the common markings and signs as well as delve into other less common but still important signs and markings.

This safety seminar is open to current and aspiring Private Pilots, and will be of particular interest to student pilots and those who are preparing for a flight review.

Kyle Smathers started flying in 2011 and is passionate about aviation.  Kyle graduated from SJSU with an Aerospace Engineering degree, and now works as a CFI at San Carlos Flight Center.  He is a Commercial: ASEL, Instrument Airplane Pilot. He offers training in Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot, High performance transition, Complex transition and Flight review.
