Movement Area


The movement area is defined as all taxiways and runways and is under the jurisdiction of the control tower. By definition, a non-movement area includes ramps and aprons that are not controlled by air traffic control. Although an aircraft may taxi in a non-movement area without any instructions from ATC, it must have a specific clearance to operate in the movement area. The boundary between the movement and non-movement area is marked with a solid yellow line parallel to a dashed yellow line.
