Article 9: The track of an aerodrome open to air traffic must be able to withstand the movement of the aircraft for which it is intended.
The track surface is constructed in hard to provide good friction characteristics when the runway is wet.
It is built without irregularities that would effect to reduce the friction characteristics or harm, in any other manner, take-off or landing of an aircraft.
The friction surfaces of the tracks new characteristics are defined by order of the Minister having civil aviation in its attributions on proposal of the civil aviation authority.
Article 10: The aerodrome reference point shall be determined for an aerodrome where an outer surface is established.
For each aerodrome, the reference temperature shall be determined in degree Celsius.
The altitude of an aerodrome is measured and indicated. For any track to the instruments, the elevation of each threshold and any significant intermediate, high and low, along the track must be measured and indicated.
Article 11: The following distances are calculated for a track which code figure is 3 or 4 and for a track to the instruments when the number is 1 or 2: 1) distance of usable takeoff tread;
(2) distance usable at take-off;
(3) distance for the accelerate-stop; and 4) distance usable landing.
Article 12: The construction of an aerodrome plan the routes of movement to ensure safety and speed of movement of the aircraft on the surface.
It also provides: 1) traffic areas necessary for the operations of embarkation and disembarkation of passengers, goods and mail as well as of small maintenance operations not annoying traffic at aerodromes;
(2) the development of one or several platforms to wait for traffic to deal with the traffic.
Article 13: The track of an aerodrome open to public air traffic has input and output sufficient channels to expedite the movement of aircraft at destination and from this track.
The resistance of a lane must be at least equal to that of the track it is called to serve.
Article 14: One or several points waiting runway must be equipped on the road at the intersection of a road traffic and a track, at the intersection of a track with another track where the first is part of a route standard traffic on the surface.
Article 15: Any aerodrome open to the public aenenne has aprons operations of embarkation and disembarkation of passengers, goods and mail as well as of small maintenance operations not annoying the aerodrome traffic.
Article 16: All aerodrome open to the public aenenne has electrical systems to ensure the safety of the operation of the facilities and air navigation services.
On the aerodromes equipped of a runway lighting, but with no auxiliary power source, the aerodrome operator provides lighting of emergency intended to mark obstacles or to delineate traffic lanes and movement areas.
Article 17: Any aerodrome open to air traffic public has Visual AIDS to navigation and Visual AIDS to report barriers to navigation and areas of use.
It is also equipped with a light device approach and guidance on the track.
An order of the Minister in charge of civil aviation determines, after technical opinion of the civil aviation authority, the technical specifications of Visual AIDS, light approach and guidance on the track.
