Overview

Learn everything you ever wanted to know about airport lighting. This publication contains over 300 pages of information and 140 images.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recommends the guidance and specifications in this Advisory Circular for Design and Installation Details for Airport Visual Aids. In general, use of this AC is not mandatory. However, use of this AC is mandatory for all projects funded with federal grant monies through the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) and with revenue from the Passenger Facility Charges (PFC) Program. All lighting configurations contained in this standard are the only means acceptable to the Administrator to meet the lighting requirements of Title 14 CFR Part 139, Certification of Airports, Section 139.311, Marking, Signs and Lighting. See exception in paragraph 2.1.2b (2), Location and Spacing.
