This UFC provides standards for marking DoD airfields and heliports. This UFC also requires use of the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) for marking roadways, vehicular traffic routes on airfields, and airfield service roads maintained and operated by the designated authority. It gives the minimum level of markings necessary for paved surfaces of fixed and rotary wing runways, taxiways, helipads, and landing lanes as well as unique apron or hard stand markings necessary for maintenance or calibration of aircraft. It refers to FAA or ICAO standards for marking the surfaces of obstructions when deemed necessary by the designated authority. For additional airfield facility types such as the F-35 Vertical Landing (VL) Pad and LHD Simulated Deck Facilities, and other FIXED-WING SHORT TAKEOFF AND VERTICAL LANDING (STOVL) facilities, see UFC 3-260-01.
