* symbol on the IFATC schedule

Hi, I was just wondering what the * symbol in the IFATC schedule mean. For example:

Beijing Capital (ZBAA)-Kai Tak* (VHHX)

As stated in the schedule, that implies that an airport should not be open to any controller in the check-ride phase.

  • denotes airports that should not be opened by controllers in the check ride phase

Hello! The asteroid on the IFATC means that a controller that is in the checkride can’t open that airport
