An airfield.

When used in the provisions relating to flight plans and ATS (air traffic services) messages, it covers sites other than aerodromes that may be used by certain types of aircraft (e.g., helicopters, seaplanes, or balloons). Aerodromes are depicted on aeronautical charts as shown in the illustration.
