BaseOps User's Guide, Chapter 14: Editing Runways

Runways serve an important purpose in BaseOps: they are anchors for flight tracks. The location and orientation of a flight track depends on the location and heading, respectively, of the track's runway.

Runways are used by the NMap, AAM, and RNM noise models. Unless one of these models is selected, the parts of the BaseOps user interface dealing with runways will be hidden. See Noise Models.

To work with runways, choose Runways from the object type selector dropdown list. Runways can be added, duplicated, and deleted as described in Working with the List Pane.

Tip:

BaseOps can import runways from DAFIF. See Importing Information from DAFIF.

To edit a runway, first select it in the object list, then edit its properties in the text pane.

Runways have the following properties.

Press the Reverse button to swap the runway endpoints and modify the runway name so that it refers to the opposite runway (for example, changing 23L to 05R). The name is not changed if it does not follow standard runway naming conventions (two digits referring to the heading, optionally followed by 'L', 'C', or 'R').

Tip:

After adding a runway, you can easily add the opposite runway to the BaseOps case by following these steps.

  1. Press the Duplicate button on the list pane to create a copy of the first runway.

  2. Press the Reverse button to change the copy into the opposite runway.
