Aerodrome beacon: Aeronautical beacon used to indicate the location of an aerodrome from the air. Aerodrome certificate: A certificate issued by the appropriate authority under applicable regulations for the operation of an aerodrome. Aerodrome elevation: The elevation of the highest point of the landing area. Aerodrome identification sign: A sign placed on an aerodrome to aid in identifying the aerodrome from the air. Aerodrome reference point: The designated geographical location of an aerodrome. Aeronautical ground light: Any light specially provided as an aid to air navigation, other than a light displayed on an aircraft.

Notes ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ Aviation Safety & Security Management prescribed by the certificating authority or equivalent data from the aeroplane manufacturer. Field length means balanced field length for aeroplanes, if applicable, or takeoff distance in other cases. Aircraft classification number (ACN): A number expressing the relative effect of an aircraft on a pavement for a specified standard subgrade category. Note: The aircraft classification number is calculated with respect to the centre of gravity (CG) position which yields the critical loading on the critical gear. Normally the aft most CG position appropriate to the maximum gross apron (ramp) mass is used to calculate the ACN. In exceptional cases the forward-most CG position may result in the nose gear loading being more critical. Aircraft stand: A designated area on an apron intended to be used for parking an aircraft. It is also known as “Parking Bay” or “Gate”. Aircraft stands are named as “Stand Nos” 1,2, 3, ...,31,..,45 etc. Apron: A defined area, on a land aerodrome, intended to accommodate aircraft for purposes of loading or unloading passengers, mail or cargo, fuelling, parking or maintenance. Apron management service: A service provided to regulate the activities and the movement of aircraft and vehicles on an apron.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
