Thanks for the reply guys but i was more concerned about changing the numbering so it can be plain as day and the confusion can be eleminated.
|Quoting JumboJim747 (Thread starter):|
There has been a fair bit of incidents and acident8 due to pilots mistaking runways when they are parallel is there a way this can be changed to stop the confusion for example changing a runway number from 34L and 34R to say 34L and 35R a change of a number or would that throw off navigational instruments
|Quoting Mir (Reply 7):|
It wouldn't throw off navigational instruments, but it would eventually get confusing for pilots at airports with many parallel runways.
|Quoting JumboJim747 (Reply 8):|
Im talking like a number difference of 1 for example instead of having 2 runways with the same number we can bavw one say 34 and one 35 instead of both being 34 left and right
|Quoting JumboJim747 (Reply 11):|
How about putting the L and R before the numers would that be more clearer at a glace L34 R34
|Quoting Mir (Reply 14):|
I don't really see the difference between 34L and L34. Plus, when speaking on the radio, "left ______" is generally associated with a turn, so "cleared for takeoff left 34" could be misinterpreted as an instruction to turn left after takeoff.
