Airport Markings and Signs

There are markings and signs used at airports, which provide
directions and assist pilots in airport operations. Some of the
most common markings and signs are discussed. Additional
information may be found in Chapter 2, Aeronautical
Lighting and Other Airport Visual Aids, in the Aeronautical
Information Manual (AIM).

Runway Markings
Runway markings vary depending on the type of operations
conducted at the airport. Figure 13-3 shows a runway that
is approved as a precision instrument approach runway and
some other common runway markings. A basic VFR runway
may only have centerline markings and runway numbers.
