A symbol following the elevation under the airport name means that runway lights are in operation
sunset to sunrise. A symbol indicates there is Pilot Controlled Lighting. A symbol means the lighting is
part-time or on request. The pilot should consult the Airport/Facility Directory for light operating procedures.
The Aeronautical Information Manual thoroughly explains the types and uses of airport lighting aids.
