Taxi instructions

Taxi instructions issued by a controller will always contain a clearance limit, which is the point at which the aircraft must stop unless further permission to proceed is given. For departing aircraft, the clearance limit will normally be the taxi-holding point of the runway in use, but may be some other position on the aerodrome depending on prevailing circumstances. A taxi route may be included in taxi instructions.

Note – In case a taxi clearance contains a limit beyond a runway, it will contain an explicit clearance to cross that runway or an instruction to hold short of that runway, including for unlit runways at night and closed or unavailable runways.

A clearance to cross must be requested if one has not been given.

The runway is vacated when the entire aircraft is beyond the relevant runway-holding position.

Where an aircraft acknowledges receipt of the ATIS broadcast, the controller does not need to pass departure information to the pilot when giving taxi instructions.
