2.  Runway Location Sign. 

This sign has a 

black background with a yellow inscription and 
yellow border, as shown in FIG 2

3

32. The 

inscription is the designation of the runway on which 
the aircraft is located. These signs are intended to 
complement the information available to pilots 
through their magnetic compass and typically are 
installed where the proximity of two or more runways 
to one another could cause pilots to be confused as to 
which runway they are on. 

3. Runway Boundary Sign. 

This sign has a 

yellow background with a black inscription with a 
graphic depicting the pavement holding position 
marking, as shown in FIG 2

3

33. This sign, which 

faces the runway and is visible to the pilot exiting the 
runway, is located adjacent to the holding position 
marking on the pavement. The sign is intended to 
provide pilots with another visual cue which they can 
use as a guide in deciding when they are “clear of the 
runway.”
