    Date: 12/100Initiated by: AAS-310

    AC No: 150/5340-1HChange: 1

    1. PURPOSE. Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5340-1H, STANDARDS FOR AIRPORT MARKINGS, has beenrevised to increase the size of various holding position markings to improve conspicuity and, thereby, reducesurface incidents including runway incursions. This proposed change is based on input gathered from theindustry and government officials attending the Runway Safety National Summit on June 26th, 2000, and theRegional Runway Safety Workshops held in each of Federal Aviation Administration's nine regions.

    Other minor changes also are included to clarify existing standards for outlining markings in black, non-movement boundary markings, and surface painted holding position and direction signs. The figuresassociated with these standards have been revised.

    2. PRINCIPAL CHANGES. Except for minor changes involving punctuation, spelling and grammar, allchanges are marked with a vertical line in the left margin of each column. The following principal changeshave been made:

    a. Paragraph 4, VISIBILITY OF MARKINGS, has been revised to clarify the markings that must beoutlined with a black border.

    b. An Appendix 2 has been added to illustrate the acceptable layout of various markings outlined inblack.

    c. Paragraph 7.c., RUNWAY DESIGNATION MARKING - COLOR, has been revised to encourage theuse of a black border to increase visibility of runway designation markings on light colored pavements.

    d. Paragraph 23.d., RUNWAY HOLDING POSITION MARKINGS ON TAXIWAYS -CHARACTERISTICS, has been revised to increase the dimensions of the runway holding positionmarking and to specify conditions when an airport operator may maintain such markings to thecurrent standard.

    e. Paragraph 24.d., HOLDING POSITION MARKINGS FOR INSTRUMENT LANDINGSYSTEM/MICROWAVE LANDING SYSTEM (ILS/MLS) CRITICAL AREAS -CHARACTERISTICS, has been revised to increase the dimensions of the ILS/MLS critical areaholding position marking and to specify conditions when an airport operator may maintain suchmarkings to the current standard.

    f. Paragraph 26.b., SURFACE PAINTED HOLDING POSITION SIGNS - LOCATION Additionallanguage clarifies location of surface painted holding position signs in relation to other surface paintedsigns.

    g. Paragraph 38.d., NON-MOVEMENT AREA BOUNDARY MARKING - CHARACTERISTICS, hasbeen revised to provide standards for a taxiway centerline that intersects a non-movement areaboundary.

    h. Figure 10, MARKING DETAILS, has been revised to reflect changes to runway holding positionmarkings and ILS/MLS critical area holding position markings.

    i. Figure 13, SURFACE PAINTED SIGNS, has been replaced with a new diagram to show the use ofsurface painted signs on wide expanses of pavements and at complicated intersections.

    j. Figure 17, GEOGRAPHIC POSITION MARKING has been revised to reflect correct orientation ofthis sign and color has been added to the taxiway hold line and centerline.
