Technical information

The airport diagrams are part of the Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) which is updated on a 28-day cycle as per the ICAO. For the FAA's digital - Terminal Procedures Publication/Airport Diagrams, this causes a change in the URL involving four numbers: the first two represent the year (09 for 2009, 10 for 2010) and the second two represent the current AIRAC cycle (01 through 13). This template uses the current date (presently 21 Jul 2018) to calculate the effective date and the matching four-digit cycle number.
