airport elevation

airport elevation
The highest point of an airport’s usable runways measured in feet or meters above mean sea level to an accuracy of 1 ft (1/2 m). In a few countries, the airport elevation is determined at the airport reference point (ARP). It is depicted on aeronautical charts as well as at prominent points, especially on the air traffic control tower. The same as aerodrome elevation. See also airport reference point.
