BUR Runway to Terminal Distance

Sun Dec 09, 2018 7:11 am

Hello all,

After looking at BUR on Google Maps following the Southwest overrun recently, I was surprised how close the two runways are to the passenger terminal. Does anyone know how these two runway safety areas/object free areas can be so close to aircraft parking spots and terminal buildings?

For example:

RWY 8/26:

The north side hold short marking to the centerline is the standard 250 feet safety area but the south side only has 125 feet from centerline to hold marking.

RWY 15/33:

The west side hold marking to the centerline is the standard 250 feet safety area but the east side only has 125 feet from centerline to hold marking and only 255 feet from centerline to an aircraft parked on gate B2.

FAA Advisory Circular 150/5300-13A states that for runways of this size the nearest aircraft parking area cannot be within 500 feet of the runway centerline.

I'm assuming KBUR has some FAA approved modifications of standards but I'm curious if anyone can shed some light on this technical airport design question of mine.

Thanks!

Burbank is really old, and this was grandfathered in. There is a new terminal that was recently approved, that will be built to modern standards. The old one will be torn down.

FAA does not issue a modification to standards for Runway Safety Areas. With that said, it appears BUR has done as much as practicable with the current airfield/terminal layout to have a compliant RSA when Runway 8/26 is operational. EMAS installation is one example. My guess is that there are also procedures to restrict gate operations when aircraft are performing takeoffs and landings on Runway 8/26 - but someone more familiar with BUR's operation would have to confirm.
