Just wondering why out of all the Cirrus I taxied behind today in Sanford, not one was on centerline, but in the center of the right side of the taxiway. Is this a new thing they are doing in case of oncoming traffic or something?
It's been that way for years. You're correct in the oncoming traffic situation. It allows for bi-directional taxi.
great idea.....until you whack a wingtip into something then get to explain why you wern't on the centerline.
Sounds like people are making up their own policies now. Next it will be landing on the right side of the runway cause the deer usually jump out from the left.
I've never flunked an applicant on the taxi before but there is a first time for everything.
Actually thats how ground says to taxi. Ground will say something like "taxi to 9L via Kilo right side"
I don't think that would be much of a problem since most of the QS tails I see are already parked on the ramp and haven't moved in some time
Hey brokeflyer, you sounds like one of the funnest people to fly with. I'd love to spend a 4 day trip with ya (NOT)!
Yeah SFB and DAB routinely use taxiways as bi-directional taxiways for small GA a/c to keep traffic moving. BTW, what is there to hit with a wingtip anyway when your wings don't even go off the side of the taxi way? Don't sweat the small stuff big fella...
