Version 1.00 Dated 30 Oct 2013

Statement: a new Airlane r!nwa" design to red!ce #!el cons!mtion.

Definitions:
Airplane takeoff is the hase o# #light in which an airlane goes thro!gh a transition #rom mo$ing along
the gro!nd (ta%iing) to #l"ing in the air.
Airplane Landing is the last art o# a #light& where a #l"ing Airlane ret!rns to the gro!nd.

Conventional Runway Design:
'!rrent landing and takeo## r!nwa" are hori(ontal as gi$en )elow.
Hori(ontal *!r#ace (+o !se o# gra$itational ,orces)
