I apologize for the rather weird and dorky question.
A few months ago, I was on MU
, and while taxiing at PVG
, I noticed that the signage on the airfield used the FHWA(x) Series typefaces. I was reminded of this last week on a flight to SIN
; when taxiing, I noticed the FHWA(x) fonts again.
For those of you who are not roadgeeks, the FHWA(x) Series typefaces are the typefaces used on most highway signage in the USA, Canada, Malaysia, and a few other countries.
I know that FHWA(x) typefaces are not used on Singaporean roadways, and China's use of FHWA(x) on roadways is relatively recent and limited.
Are there some sorts of international regulations on what typefaces are to be used on airfield signage? I find it hard to imagine China or Singapore using a foreign typeface without some sort of international requirements.
