AT THE AIRPORT
An airport is a state organization which provides the regular departure and arrival of passengers, luggage, cargo and mail. The airport provides the aircraft maintenance too. Therefore there are different kinds of facilities and equipment here. Let's have a look at the airport territory. It is large. There is an airfield, air terminal, some hangers and other constructions.
The planes use the airfield to take off and land. There are some runways and taxiways. Each runway is about 3000 metres long.
There is a control tower here, which controls the departure and arrival opera-
tions. Every hour many planes take off and land at the airport. Usually aircraft ILS or GCA. GCA uses radar systems which are automatic.

At the terminal passengers check in their tickets and baggage, rest and wait for their flight.
There is a bus service between the terminal and the city. It takes 20 minutes to get to the centre of the city from the airport.
