The tabular data now includes actual runway width (previously only those runways of width <45m showed this information) and also the material (eg asphalt).

The colour of the box around the ICAO code indicates RFF capability. (The choice of whether an ICAO is boxed is still tailored towards the author's airline.)

More CPDLC addresses have been added.

Updated runways to Honeywell EGPWS database version 482/582.

Corrections to various errors and omissions

Corrections to various errors and omissions

Nov 2014 Issue - Summary of changes

This is a major revision, with the addition of many new airports.

The following airports have been added to the maps and tables: DN03 (Jalingo), DNAS, DNBA, DNDS, DNMK, EHWO, LGKL, OEDR, OODQ, RPMY, SBSG, UAOL, UDYE, UEEA, UEMO, UEMU, UEVV, UHKG, UHKK, UIIB, UKHD, UKOM, UNII, UNKM, USDB, UTDP, UUOD, VAPO, VASU, VEBD, VEKU, VICG, VIGR, VILH, VOBZ, ZBLL, ZGHC, ZHSN, ZLDL, ZUHY, ZUPS.

EGMH and OTHH have been removed, together with a selection of small Russian airfields. ETNU has been renamed EDBN.

CPDLC addresses have been added to all the charts. This technology is still in its infancy, so coverage is sparse outside the oceanic areas.

The author’s airline specific data has been updated to reflect the implementation of electronic charting.

With the publication of the domestic Russian AIP, the Russian charts have been extensively re-worked. Russian airports which do not appear in either AIP (International or Domestic) but remain in the charts have their ICAO code now italicised. This implies that data is obsolete.

The maps and tables have been updated to Honeywell EGPWS database version 473/573. The Honeywell EGPWS database has been one of the sources used by airfield charts for many years - this note formalises the link to a particular version.
