Does an X at the ends of a private runway mean it's inoperable or does it mean its restricted to the public?

    $\begingroup$ @AEhere I think OP is aware that X means "closed" but would like to know if the reason of the closing can be inferred for a private runway. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @QuentinH That is primarily-opinion based as we do not read minds. There is a question to be asked, however, about the suitability and/or legality of closing a working (and potentially active) runway via an X marker, but that is too removed from the OPs wording. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 18, 2019 at 10:52
  • $\begingroup$ I agree. Not a duplicate though $\endgroup$

One of the reasons why a private runway owner would "X" it would be to indicate that the runway is not in good condition or closed. This can be for a genuine concern or to avoid liability concerns.
