Centerline in a RSC

Asked by: 1182 views

Really dumb question but I cant seem to find the answer.

In a runway surface condition report, the XXft from CL, is it each side or total ?


So if it is written 50ft CL, is it 100ft cleared or only 50ft ?

    I don’t know that is defined. ATC gets it’s information from the airport operator. I would ASSUME that it was the total width – and if it wasn’t wide enough I would ask.

    This information is generated in accordance with recommendations from ICAO Annex 15 commonly referred to as “SNOWTAM” In general the reference used is the runway centerline if clearing is not for the full published width of the runway. In the case cited in your question it would be measured on both sides of the centerline for a totay of 100ft. If the clearing is uneven as compared to the centerline additional information is provided in the form of “L” or “R” of centerline.

    I could not find a clean and clear reference that was available outside of the FAA firewall. Sorry!
