Marking and Lighting of Unpaved Runways · Inservice Testing

This document describes the results of inservice testing of an Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) developed unpaved runway airport marking and lighting system. Details of earlier work in connection with the development and preliminary testing of this system are contained in FAA Interim report No. FAA-NA-76-159, "Visual Aids for Turf Runways at Utility Airports," dated June 1976, and FAA Technical Letter Report No. NA-78-37-LR, Marking and Lighting Unpaved Runways, " dated May 1978. Inservice testing of the prototype unpaved runway marking and lighting system was conducted at separate utility airports having essentially different environmental conditions. User participation pilots were, in general, favorably impressed with the standardized system concept. They did, however, indicate several aspects of that system that could be improved or modified. This report details results of this inservice evaluation, and provides conclusions as to desirable changes that might enhance system effectiveness. A complete resume of the total project effort would include this report, along with two previously referenced reports of earlier work.
