Airport visual aids are used to provide guidance to pilots maneuvering on the ground and while departing and landing at airports. With thousands of flights occurring each day, air travel has to conform to certain criteria to ensure the safe operation of aircraft and its passengers. Due to the often complexities of air traffic control and air flight visual aids are essential to safe air travel. Several safety measures are built into airport visual aids including electrical backup systems.
This course will cover the design and installation details for airport visual aids. Several examples and calculations will be presented to aid in understanding the course material. Detailed illustrations are shown in the appendix, as well as definitions, with a discussion of operations and maintenance.
The student will be directed to study the document “Design and Installation Details for Airport Visual Aids,” as published on the website of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
