The entries are included alphabetically. The nine-character comment field
provides a compression of the data base's comment or turnpoint
description. If that is not available, for turnpoints associated with a
landing field, or for landing fields included for reference, the frequency
is included if available as well as the orientation of the principal
runway and its condition; e.g. 103/2134T
is an airfield with a runway
oriented 03/21 which is 3400' long and whose surface is reported to be
At the option of the providers of the data for a site, the turnpoint number may
be appended to the end of the waypoint name, and the name may be replaced with
an identifying abbreviation where that has been established [ e.g.
St. Auban ].
A "*" in the first column of the comment indicates that the code for the waypoint is
not H, A, L, h, T, t, S, F, or z;
i.e. it is not the home field, an airport, landing site,
turnpoint, start gate, finish gate, or ultralight strip, but a landmark or
an airspace reference.
