Airport : All The Best Free Flash Games Relating To Airport
An airport is a complex of buildings and runways used for the landing and take-off of aircrafts. Several facilities for passengers are also comprised within the structure. Usually, airports are located just on the outskirts of quite important cities with a high potential of aircraft usage. Basically, an airport is divided into 6 locations: the runway, the taxiway, the “ramp”, the air traffic control tower, the customs and immigration and the passenger facilities.
The runway is a long strip of land for the take-off and landing of aircrafts. To take off, a plane needs to gather speed. The pilots drive the engine on a good distance, that is on a portion of the runway length, before taking-off. Runways have markings and lightings for aircraft pilots to see from above where they will need to maneuver their plane. The taxiway is a path for aircrafts to circulate from one runway to another or to go to a terminal. The ramp or apron, is a sort of tube connecting the aircraft door to a terminal for passengers to board. The air traffic control tower is a location were ground controllers supervise the traffic of aircrafts in specific air areas.
