After vacating the runway, a marshaller on a motorcycle might be waiting for you and guide you to the parking area. Use extreme care when taxiing and apply minimum power only.
Aircraft parking on flightline
The taxiway consists of six concrete lanes. Aircraft shall try to use lane 2 for taxiing (blue line) until encountering parked aircrafts in the flight line. When a parked aircraft in the flight line is an obstacle, the taxiing aircraft shall use the next appropriate lane to the north side of the taxiway, avoiding parked airplanes in lane one and cars and minibuses on lane six. The marshaller on the motorcycle will use a lane north of yours at an angle of 45° so within clear view. The speed of the marshaller on the motorcycle is indicative for the taxi speed to use. Do not surpass the marshaller on the motorcycle unless the marshaller indicates you to do so in the case of handing you over to the next marshaller. Taildraggers should avoid zigzagging. They can taxi in a straight line following the lane indicated by the marshaller on the motorcycle. The number of indicated fingers will dictate which lane should be used. The marshaller will indicate which parking area to use. When approaching the flight line, use lane one and make a 60° turn to the centre of the taxiway and stop the engine.
Thank you for visiting, please enjoy your stay! If there is anything we can do to make your stay more pleasant, please inform us at the C-boot!
