FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. The center or outline the edges with landing lines have different drainage properties. The edges sometimes are subjected to standing water after a heavy rain. Does this affect the Landing Lines lifetime?

Answer: No, the marking lines are completely porous. Water flows though the lines, as long as the ground drains water normally.

2. Would the lines stand up to tire wear if used on the centreline?

Answer: Yes, we’ve had Royal Canadian Air Cadet test pilots try to purposely damage the lines on landings and all was kept in place without any damage. Also, the landing lines are to give the pilot the directions where to land since many air strips do not have permanent side markings they will not land at the exact place each time.

3. How are the lines installed?

Answer: A standard sod-cutting blade cuts the exact width of the landing line x 2” deep trench. Once sod is removed in the trench the lines are inserted in the trench. The marking lines are in-filled with a special mixture to keep the fibres straight. They are installed at ground level so there are no bumps to be concerned about. Instructions sheets are available.

Installations: Front and back "T lines" and front and back "L lines" in 15-meter strips (50 feet). Normally, we skip 30 meters and insert a 15-meter strip on the side lines for the 1st 30 meters in the center of the strip. Then skip the centerline and only install the sidelines every 30-meters to the end of the landing zones. Finish with a 30-meter line before the end of the landing strip. Not all landing fields are the same size.
