With the many different airport layouts, is there a standard when it comes to which runways to use and for what purpose?
KLAX is pretty straight forward where you have two runways on each side of the airport. Typically I see the outer ones used for landings and inner ones used for takeoff. I think many other airports are modeled this way too, DFW comes to mind.
I have been practicing on KONT because it has two parallel runways. One is slightly longer than the others. Normally I would use one for takeoff and one for landing but since planes can spawn on either side of the airport I usually just go with that side.
I know as a controller it is up to us on what we want to do and sometimes we make it harder than it should be. But I was curious what others do in these sorts of cases? I’m just trying to learn :)
