A certificated aerodrome is one that falls within the scope of Commission Regulation (EU) No 139/2014. Aerodromes fall within the scope of this Regulation if they are open to public use; serve commercial air transport; operate using instrument flight procedures; and have a paved runway of 800 metres or above.

An aerodrome outside of the scope of Commission Regulation (EU) No 139/2014 is required to be licensed if it meets the criteria outlined in Part 8 of the Air Navigation Order 2016. Such an aerodrome is required to hold a national licence if it is used for commercial air transport or flying training in aircraft above a specified weight.
