    scrap all that....go to google type in aircraft fonts
     
  4. We do aircraft all the time since we are located next to a airport.
    FAA requires, unless it's experimental aircraft, all fonts must be a minimum of 2inch width and no less than 2 inches apart. That's it. Don't over kill it. They are very picky about the 12 inch tall rule. We use helvetica bold. If you shadow or slant the number, the main number still has to be 12 inches tall with a 2inch space between numbers and letters. If you slant use a 15 degree on one side and then a -15 degree on the other. Have any problems email me and I'll get you through it.
    Oh yea, experimental aircraft must be a minimum of 3 inches tall.
