Dear pilots: NZAA runway 05R

Pilots, there is absolutey no need to backtaxi runway 05R, it’s almost 3500meters long!! Especially if you are in a 757!!

Auckland’s runway length is capable to handle 17 hours a380 flights to Dubai.

It can be very frustrating to controllers especially this airport only has 1 runway

@virginatlantic28 it depends on the preference and weight of the plane and the pilot…

Giving takeoff clearance gives permission to back-taxi to the pilot. You can use an expedite or immediate takeoff if you want the pilot to get off the ground faster

A wise pilot always uses every inch of runway available 😉
