scope:

This instruction implements Air Force policy directive (AFPD) 32-10, Installations and Facilities. It provides Air Force standards for marking airfield pavements and obstructions. It gives the minimum level of marking necessary for paved surfaces of runways, taxiways, helipads, and the surfaces of obstructions. (See Engineering Technical Letter (ETL) 04-7, C-130 and C-17 Landing Zone (LZ) Dimensional, Marking, and Lighting Criteria, for landing zone marking requirements.) It applies to all Air Force activities except those operating at airports owned and controlled by an authority other than the Department of Defense (DoD). For airports under Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) jurisdiction, use FAA Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5340-1, Standards for Airport Markings. For DoD facilities overseas, if a written agreement exists between the host nation and DoD that requires application of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), or FAA standards, those standards shall apply as stipulated within the agreement. For cases where a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) specifically requires international standards, use ICAO Annex 14, Volume I, Aerodromes (for fixed wing runways) or Annex 14, Volume II, Heliports (for rotary wing helipads and runways), as appropriate. Air Force tenant organizations on civil airports should use these standards on the military portion of the airfield to the maximum extent practicable; otherwise, FAA criteria apply. Use this instruction in conjunction with the layout criteria provided in ETL 04-2, Standard Airfield Pavement Marking Schemes. Users should send comments and suggested improvements on AF Form 847, Recommendation for Change of Publication, through major commands (MAJCOM) to HQ AFCESA/CES, 139 Barnes Dr, Suite 1, Tyndall AFB, FL 32403-5319. Ensure all records created as a result of processes prescribed in this publication are maintained in accordance with AFPD 37-1, Air Force Information Management, and AFMAN 37-123, Management of Records, and disposed of in accordance with the Air Force Records Disposition Schedule (RDS) located at https://webrims.amc.af.mil.
