When the airplane is approaching the airport, the landing gear is lowered. That’s when the anti-skid system is activated: it guarantees that all the wheels are spinning homogeneously. The result is a uniform, safe and controlled braking process.
To ensure safe landings at night or under unfavorable weather conditions, an approach light system is installed on the runway. It’s comprised of different types of sequence and color, allowing the pilot to transition from instrument flight to visual flight for landing.
It’s the document that airlines give to customers, allowing them to board a certain flight. It contains the passenger name, the flight number, the seat and the time travelers must be at the boarding gate.
The Passenger Information List contains the passengers confirmed for a flight. It’s delivered to the crew before the boarding procedure, so they can check if everyone is present.
After going through airport security, the timetable is usually the first thing you look for. These screens, located at several spots in the terminals, display up-to-date information on flights, with status, time and boarding gate.
