Here is the current term:If below it different substantially compared to how it appears in your app/software, be sure to update your software/app's content prior to using this form.
The definition of "aerodrome" varies somewhat from location to location. The following definitions apply in various places:
Any area of land or water used for aircraft operation, regardless of facilities.
An airfield used for managed aircraft operation, either military or civilian, having such facilities as are necessary for operation.
An airfield equipped with air traffic control facilities and hangars as well as accommodation for passengers and cargo; an airport.
In some parts of the word, such as the USA, the term is rarely used and may sound anachronistic. Still, most aviation-minded people should generally be aware that the term refers to an aircraft takeoff/landing facility of some sort. An early American aviation pioneer, Samuel Langley, named his early flying machine(s) "aerodrome." The use of the term to mean an actual flying machine, as Langley did, is wholly obsolete.
