A node located at the aerodrome or heliport reference point. An aerodrome or heliport reference point is the designated geographical location of an aerodrome, heliport or landing location. An aerodrome reference point shall be established for an aerodrome. A heliport reference point shall be established for a heliport or a landing location not collocated with an aerodrome. The aerodrome or heliport reference point shall be located near the initial or planned geometric centre of the aerodrome, heliport or landing location and shall normally remain where first established. An aerodrome is a defined area on land or water (including any buildings, installations and equipment) intended to be used either wholly or in part for the arrival, departure and surface movement of aircraft. A heliport is an aerodrome or a defined area on a structure intended to be used wholly or in part for the arrival, departure and surface movement of helicopters. A landing location is a marked or unmarked area that has the same physical characteristics as a visual heliport final approach and take-off area (FATO). The attribute "code_type" distinguishes aerodromes 'AD' from heliports 'HP' but also markes aerodromes containing heliports 'AH'. The aerodrome elevation is the vertical distance between the highest point of the landing area of an aerodrome and mean sea level and is the combination of the attributes "val_elev" (this is the value of the field eleveation itself), "uom_dist_ver" (which is the unit of measurement) and the "txt_ver_datum" (either 'ADRIA' meaning above mean sea level based on Adria or 'OTHER:AGM08' which is the elevation above the Austrian Geoid Model 2008). This dataset covers Austrian territory only.
The ILS-DME (Instrument Landing System Distance Measuring Equipment) is a component of an ILS consisting of an Ultra High Frequency (UHF) ground equipment that is used in conjunction with airborne equipment to determine distance between the airborne and ground equipment [AIXM 5.1.1].

A NDB (Non-directional radio beacon) is a low or medium frequency radio beacon which transmits signals whereby the pilot of an aircraft properly equipped can determine bearings and 'home in' on the station [AIXM 5.1.1].
The ILS-LOC (Instrument Landing System Localizer) is a component of an ILS consisting of a VHF transmitter, radiating signals in the direction served by the ILS, to provide a straight line descent path in the vertical plane containing the centre line of the runway [AIXM 5.1.1].

R describes airspaces of type "Restriced area". A restricted area is an airspace of defined dimensions, above the land areas or territorial waters of a State, within which the flight of aircraft is restricted in accordance with certain specified conditions. Activation of AMC (Airspace management cell) manageable restricted areas is published by the AMC in the AUP (Airspace use plan) available via the Austrian Self- and Homebriefing system (https://www.homebriefing.com). Restricted areas are defined by the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology and the Austrian Ministry of Defence. The lateral and vertical limits and the conditions are laid down in the Austrian "Rules of the air" (https://www.ris.bka.gv.at/GeltendeFassung.wxe?Abfrage=Bundesnormen&Gesetzesnummer=20008992). This dataset covers Austrian territory only.
A designated point is a geographical location not marked by the site of a radio navigation aid, used in defining an ATS (air traffic service) route, the flight path of an aircraft or for other navigation or ATS purposes [AIXM 5.1.1].
A DME (Distance Measuring Equipment) is a NAVAID (navigational aid) and is an Ultra High Frequency (UHF) ground equipment that is used in conjunction with airborne equipment to determine distance between the airborne and ground equipment [AIXM 5.1.1].
A runway area is a defined rectangular area on a land aerodrome / heliport prepared for the landing and take-off of aircraft. This includes the concept of Final Approach and Take-Off Area (FATO) for helicopters [AIXM 5.1.1].
