c) High-Speed Taxiway Turnoffs.  Provide one or more high-speed
turnoffs for fixed-wing aircraft if operational conditions permit and traffic
studies indicate the requirement.  For criteria governing pavement geometry and
grades, see Table 11.  Because aircraft turning off runways at high speeds
(maximum 55 knots) require sufficient length of turnoff taxiway to decelerate to
a full stop before reaching the parallel taxiway, the minimum length of turnoff
shall be 1000 feet.  The angle of turnoff is determined by the existing distance
between runway and taxiway and by operational requirements of using aircraft,
but in no case shall exceed 30 degrees.  For typical configuration, see Figure
