What is Runway ’26’?


City Airport has several grass runways which are all given a numeric designation. This designation relate to the magnetic heading of each Runway. There are six runway headings used at City Airport for each landing direction. These are 02,08,14,20,26 and 32. We chose 'Runway 26' as our name as this is the main runway used at the airport. '26' relates to a magnetic heading of 260 degrees.
