run-up area

A portion of the airfield earmarked and designed for the run-up of aircraft engines. It may have devices to tie down the aircraft, so that it does not jump chocks when run at full power. Normally, a blast deflector is provided at the runup area to deflect thrust and aircraft exhaust gases.
