Template:AIP AU/doc

Jump to navigation Jump to search

This template is used to generate an external link to the AIP "En Route Supplement - Australia" (ERSA) for a specific airport. The ERSA facilities (FAC) section contains full details for all licensed aerodromes and limited details for many unlicensed airfields.[1] It is updated four times a year and the URL changes each time, so using a template allows it to be updated in one place rather than editing multiple articles.

Usage[change source]

Parameters:

  1. (unnamed) - airport's ICAO location identifier, i.e. YPAD
  2. name (optional) - airport's location as shown in the AIP, i.e. ADELAIDE

Short version (used in airport lists):

  • Usage: {{AIP_AU|YPAD}}
  • Result: YPAD

Long version (used in airport articles):

Technical information[change source]

The "En Route Supplement - Australia" (ERSA) is updated four times per year with releases in March, June, August and November (the effective dates usually correspond with AIRAC cycles 03, 06, 09 and 12). This causes a change in the URL which includes the new effective date, such as 03-Mar-2016 (note use of leading zero for day of month). This template should be updated before the effective date for each new cycle. The following is list of changes required in 2016 and 2017.

  • 03-Mar-2016 — new effective date, Amendment cycle 1603
