Aerodrome coordinates as csv or geospatial data format

I'd like to be able to add aerodromes to my basemap for civil defence planning purposes, but I imagine there could be many other ways of reusing this data. I strongly believe that data should originate directly from the agency responsible so it can be deemed authoritative. Currently the fields available include: Aerodrome Name, Type, ICAO Code, Remarks, Latitude, Longitude Other fields such as runway surface and length, and air navigation systems would make this data extremely valuable.

Currently CAA publish a pdf list of aerodromes and their latitude and longitude. A csv file would be much easier data to handle, because It can drop that directly into any mapping system.

Ensuring that the aerodromes shown on a variety of maps are actually registered aerodromes, and not the myriad of top dressing strips shown on topo maps.
