Destination Sign for Different

2-3-12. Information Signs

Information signs have a yellow background with a
black inscription. They are used to provide the pilot

with information on such things as areas that cannot
be seen from the control tower, applicable radio
frequencies, and noise abatement procedures. The
airport operator determines the need, size, and
location for these signs.

2-3-13. Runway Distance Remaining Signs

Runway distance remaining signs have a black
background with a white numeral inscription and
may be installed along one or both side(s) of the
runway. The number on the signs indicates the
distance (in thousands of feet) of landing runway
remaining. The last sign, i.e., the sign with the
numeral "1," will be located at least 950 feet from the
runway end. FIG 2-3-41 shows an example of a
runway distance remaining sign.
