Could someone explain to me why the airport symbols are different for this airport (KVAY)
Than for this one (KGWB)
Both airports have a single, solid-surface runway between 1500 and 8069 feet, but KGWB is represented by a thin line surrounded by a solid circle (correct, according to my sectional) while KVAY is represented by a thick line surrounded by a solid rectangle (which according to my sectional represents a hard surfaced runway GREATER than 8069 feet).
Is the chart excerpt for KVAY from an IFR chart? The excerpt for KGWB is identical to my own VFR chart and I’ve not seen an IFR chart…did I answer my own question here? There is a decidedly different appearance between the two excerpts…
Hoping this isn’t a ‘google is your friend’ case
