- FREDERICK MUNI ARPT
- FREDERICK MUNI ILS RWY 23 [radio beacon]
- FREDERICK VOR [radio beacon]
- FREDERICK RCO [remote communications outlet radio]
The ICAO code KFDK identifies solely and unambiguously Frederick Municipal Airport.

A soft standard has the advantage of not suddenly throwing the work of diligent wiki-abiding editors into noncompliance, while still establishing the consensus convention.
Wiki Update wrote:Name each runway using the airport identifier, the word ''Runway'', and the runway designations with the lower number first (e.g., "SMF Runway 16R-34L".) The primary airport identifier that should be used is the IATA 3-letter code, for example "SFO", "LAX", "JFK", etc. If the airport in question is not included in that list, use the ICAO 4-letter code instead. If the airport is not included in that list use the FAA identifier.

I can only remember two category-specific Place articles: Gas Stations and Parking Lots. I don't think guidelines for Airports were formalized into an article.DwarfLord wrote:I agree, but, I can't seem to find the article about Places for airports. The Great Table in the master Places article has an entry for Airports, of course, but the only comment is "Special-handling" and it is not a link.
sketch wrote:I'm going to resurrect this again. We brought up arguments but never made a change. I do not believe it is proper to include the airport code within the runway name. Also, the numbers in a runway number are, everywhere I've seen them, separated by a slash, not a hyphen.
I propose a change from, e.g., "MSY Runway 10-28", first introduced here and never changed, to, e.g., "Runway 10/28".
