Re: Runway numbering

From Wikipedia:

"Runways are named by a number between 01 and 36, which is generally one tenth of the magnetic azimuth of the runway's heading: a runway numbered 09 points east (90), runway 18 is south (180), runway 27 points west (270) and runway 36 points to the north (360 rather than 0)."

Re: Runway numbering

number = Direction measured clockwise from magnetic north / 10

for Q1

13 X 10 = 130 then the direction east south from towards of runway
but from backward what will the direction ?

Re: Runway numbering

For Q1 you would say southeast (SE), then 180 degrees more gives a runway number of 13 + 18 = 31 if I am understanding correctly.

Re: Runway numbering

The convention is to give north or south first, then east or west, so that starting at north and working clockwise, we have:

N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW

For problem 2, I could only assume you were wanting to know the number of the runway 180 degrees off from the first runway, that's why I added 18. If you could explain the second problem more clearly, I will try it again.

Re: Runway numbering

Runway 18 would point due south, what does that have to do with east?

As I stated, Q2 as worded, is very hard to understand. Could you post it again, taking care to word it properly?

A huge American sporting event is about to start, so I will check back in about 4 hours!

Re: Runway numbering

32 - 13 = 19 meaning 190 difference, how can that be the same runway?
