As far as I understand this problem, it's not yet properly resolved. On 
the aerodrome page type=* key is stroked, however type key page doesn't 
contain any discouraging notes on this, and both pages refer to 
aerodrome=* proposition (by Jgpacker). But when you read it, you'll find 
that this construction is not mentioned there:


So currently we have type=military advised on the aeroway=aerodrome page 
and military=airfield/landuse=military on aerodrome=* proposition page.

It would be good to make aerodrome=* proposition complete and voted to 
have more reliable tools for tagging airports. We could even add 
heliport=* there as a special kind of airport to make them coherent as 
one would expect.
