a landing area, esp for private aircraft, that is usually smaller than an airport
An airfield. A defined area on land or water (including any runway(s), taxi tracks, aprons, buildings, installations, and equipment) intended to be used either wholly or in part for the parking, maintenance, arrival, departure, and surface movement of aircraft (ICAO). 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.
