> Proposing the addition of runway holding position markings (commonly
> called hold lines). Runway holding position markings are painted markings
> on an airport surface that identify the runway safety area. At controlled
> airports, these markings indicate where an aircraft is to stop if the
> aircraft does not have permission to enter the runway. When exiting a
> runway, an aircraft is not considered clear of that runway until all parts
> of the aircraft have crossed the holding position marking. The runway
> holding position is painted across the runway or taxiway and consists of
> two solid lines on the side that is clear of the runway safety area and two
> dashed lines on the other side.
> Greatly appreciate any comments folks have.
