Essendon Airport has installed Movement Area Guidance Signs throughout the movement area. Both Advisory and Mandatory MAG signs are now in place. Advisory signs indicate to pilots and vehicles on the movement area of their current location, direction or destination. Advisory signs have either a yellow or black background. Mandatory signs usually mark a holing point mandating that aircraft and vehicles are not permitted to proceed beyond these signs. Mandatory signs have a red background with white text.
The installation of the MAG signs has significantly improved the safety of the movement area at Essendon Airport..
