Alternative term: Aid to navigation establishment

All buildings and apparatus belonging to an aid to navigation and its operation.

Note: An aid to navigation station including an important light is usually called in Britain and the U.S.A. a light-station, and in France a phare. There are also fog-signal stations and light- and fog-signal stations.

Please note that this is the term as it stands in the original IALA Dictionary edition (1970-1989)
