Team,

 

The FAA just issued FAA Notice 7110.528, effective 30 Jun 2010, that affects significantly the taxi procedures used when crossing runways.

 

Summary of Changes:

 

1. The phraseology "Taxi to _____" will no longer be used.

2. Aircraft are no longer automatically permitted to cross runways along their taxi route. An explicit runway crossing clearance must be issued for each runway (active/inactive or closed) crossing and requires an aircraft/vehicle to have crossed the previous runway before another runway crossing clearance may be issued.

 

 

An example using the new terminology:

 

Note: In the following example, KBOS is using the 27/27 configuration, Local and Ground control are combined.

 

Old clearance to Runway 27 for departure, using the new taxi diagram, would sound like:

AAL123, taxi to runway 27 via Bravo, Charlie Delta.

 

 

New clearance to Runway 27 for departure, using the new taxi diagram, would sound like:

AAL123, Runway 27, taxi via Bravo, Charlie, Delta, hold short Runway 4L.

 

as AAL123 approaches Runway 4L:

AAL123, cross Runway 4L, hold short Runway 4R.

 

as AAL123 approaches Runway 4R:

AAL123, cross Runway 4R, hold short Runway 33L.

 

as AAL123 approaches Runway 33L:

AAL123, cross Runway 33L.

 

 

Yes, so on a busy day (read event), can you see the issue with this....? Can you say, "Frequency Congestion!"

 

I sure can!! But it takes just one time for............
