|Proposal status:||Proposed (under way)|
|Definition:||A portion of the runway proper behind its displaced threshold (which is a runway threshold located at a point other than the physical beginning or end of the runway)|
|Rendered as:||A section of runway usually marked with white arrows pointing towards the wide white line across the runway (at the location of a displaced threshold). The part of the runway between the displaced threshold and the runway end is sometimes marked out visually by white arrows along the runway's centerline, and can be rendered accordingly. This section is part of the runway.|
Formalize the use of a dedicated tag for displaced thresholds on aerodrome infrastructure.
Displaced thresholds are a distinct and easily recognizable part of the built structures at an airport. They mark an optional section of runways that can be used for take-off but not for landing. The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) defines displaced thresholds as being "on the runway" (AIM PCG D-3). See also on Wikipedia.
Displaced thresholds are often marked with a distinct centerline repeated arrow marking with the tip of the arrow pointing to the start/threshold of the runway it belongs to.
A way tagged as displaced threshold shown in JOSM on the backdrop of Bing satellite imagery at JFK airport.
Aeroways description page - To be updated in the runway section to reflect the application of this tag.
Discussion started in 2017 from the aeroway=runway discussion page
Current use as reported by taginfo:
First draft: aeroway=displaced_threshold
The initial version of this draft suggested using aeroway=displaced_threshold instead. Feedback and current usage suggested that most airline industry refer to displaced threshold as being part of the runway. See the taginfo comparison of usage of aeroway=displaced_threshold and runway=displaced_threshold
