FAA ACS Knowledge Test Code: PA.II.D.K2

  Airport Signage

Understanding airport signage is critical knowledge for all pilots. You can expect to see questions based on Figure 66 (from the Knowledge Testing Supplement) on the written test. And during your flight test or even during a flight review, your examiner might well ask you what different signs indicate. Operations at any airport, particularly ones you are unfamiliar with, can only be safely conducted when you have a full understanding of the signage.

There are no real tricks to learning what the signs mean. You simply have to memorize them. Use the animated version of Figure 66 below to memorize them all. Click on the pictures of the signs to see what they indicate.
