1. Two types of airports
    • Towered
    • Non-towered
  2. Runways with basic markings and are intended for aircraft conducting a visual approach
    Visual runways
  3. Includes markings such as guidance aircraft on non-precision instrument approaches. Includes threshold markings, runway designation, centerlines, and aiming points.
    Non-precision instrument runways
  4. Runways with threshold markings, numbers, centerlines, touchdown zones, and aiming points
    Precision runways
  5. Runway holding position (Runway hold short line)
    Double solid line
  6. Red background with white numbers
  7. Instrument landing system (ILS)
    Becomes the hold short line in low visibility
  8. Displaced threshold marking
    White chevrons
  9. Relocated threshold marking
    Yellow chevron (can't takeoff until past threshold)
  10. Blastpad/Stopway marking (overrun)
    Large, yellow chevrons
  11. Runway location sign
    Black background, yellow number, yellow border (located on runway)
  12. Black background, White number on runway
    Feet remaining in thousands of feet
  13. Solid single yellow line
    Marks the centerline of the taxiway
  14. Double yellow line (not intended for aircraft use)
    Marks the taxiway edge
  15. Dashed double yellow line
    Marks taxiway edge, differentiating the taxiway from adjoining pavement which is used by aircraft, such as a run-up area or a ramp
