OTHER NOTES:   (1) Includes publicly-owned airports even if no scheduled airlines service it or if its clientele consists of private pilots and aircraft. (2) For leased facilities include government's expenditures and employees and exclude the lessees' expenditures and contractual employment. (3) Report payments by an airport authority to a regular police department of the same government at L01 and deduct an equal amount from Police Protection, code E62. The rationale for this procedure is that the primary function involved is air transportation.
