T-45C TS INav-04; ADV INav-02
Components and Characteristics of the Instrument Landing System (ILS)
b. Spaced at 100 ft intervals
c.
System starts 100 ft from landing threshold and extends to
3,000 ft from the threshold or the midpoint of the runway,
whichever is less

Runway Edge Light System
1. Runway End Identifier Lights (REILs)
a. Provides rapid and positive ID of the approach end of a runway
b. Consists of a pair of synchronized flashing lights laterally
located on each side of the runway threshold
c.
May be either omnidirectional or unidirectional facing the
approach area
2. Runway Edge Light System
Sg 4, fr 13-14
Runway Edge Light System
a. Identifies a runway:
(1) Surrounded by a large concentration of other lighting
(2) That lacks contrast with surrounding terrain
(3) During reduced visibility
b. Physical characteristics:
(1) Normally white except for instrument runways where amber
lights replace the white edge lights for the last 2,000 ft of
the runway or half the runway length, whichever is less.
This forms a caution zone for landing aircraft
(2) Lights shine green outward from the runway approach end
to identify threshold
(3) Lights shine red from end of the runway toward departure
end to indicate the end of runway to departing aircraft
c.
Classification is according to intensity or brightness
Sg 4, fr 15-16
HIRLs, MIRLs, LIRLs
(1) High Intensity Runway Lighting (HIRL)
(2) Medium Intensity Runway Lighting (MIRL)
(3) Low Intensity Runway Lighting (LIRL)
