This SAE Aerospace Recommended Practice (ARP) specifies pictographic symbols for ground support equipment. They have been compiled for the benefit of those who deal with such equipment like airlines, airport authorities, manufacturers etc. in order to facilitate fast and accurate identification of controls, indicators, and decals of powered and unpowered equipment. This document shall promote standardization of terms for controls, indicators etc. of ground support equipment and eliminate language problems. It is recommended to put these pictograms on all future equipment and to retrofit all existing equipment as far as possible.
This standard is outdated and superseded by ISO 11532 and ISO 7000. The major update it would need is prevented by copyright issues with ISO and the expertise available in AGE-2C. Therefore, it is proposed for cancellation. Please see ISO 11532 for up-to-date symbols (pictograms) information.
