  • 3-9-8. INTERSECTING RUNWAY/INTERSECTING FLIGHT PATH OPERATIONS

    1. Issue traffic information to each aircraft operating on intersecting runways.
    2. Separate departing aircraft from another aircraft using an intersecting runway by ensuring that the departure does not begin takeoff roll until one of the following exists:
      1. The preceding aircraft has departed and passed the intersection or is turning to avert any conflict. (See FIG 3-9-9).

        FIG 3-9-9
      2. A preceding arriving aircraft (See FIG 3−9−10)
        1. (a) Is clear of the landing runway, or
        2. (b) Has completed the landing roll on the runway and will hold short of the intersection, or
        3. (c) Has completed the landing roll and is observed turning at an exit point prior to the intersection, or
        4. (d) Has passed the intersection.

      3. Separate aircraft taking off behind a departing or landing aircraft on an intersecting runway if flight paths will cross (See FIG 3-9-11 and FIG 3-9-12):

        NOTE: Takeoff clearance to the following aircraft should not be issued until the appropriate time interval has passed after the preceding aircraft began takeoff roll.

        1. (a) Heavy, large, or small behind super - 3 minutes.
        2. (b) Heavy, large, or small behind heavy - 2 minutes.
        3. (c) Small behind B757 - 2 minutes.

      4. Pilot requests to deviate from the required time intervals must not be approved if the preceding aircraft requires wake turbulence separation.
