There is already an existing international aerodrome mapping standard and
published schema which defines all features, their attributes, the
hierarchical relations between them, topologies ( for taxing routing ), and
their data type ( point, line, area, etc. ). This is also used in almost
all the current aviation simulation software. The Aerodrome Mapping
Database (AMDB) at
https://www.eurocontrol.int/articles/aerodrome-mapping-database-amdb based
on "RTCA DO-272 User Requirements for Aerodrome Mapping Information",
explanation at "Survey and Data Standards for Submission of Aeronautical
Data Using Airports GIS" (
). The standard document itself is pricey, but their are several free XML
versions with viewers out there ( http://amxm.aero/ ).

Going forward, at least in the United States, the FAA has released some and
in the future many more datasets of airports under the Airports GIS and
Electronic Airport Layout Plan (eALP)

" Testing these turn-by-turn systems, however, requires detailed airport
information, and must include runway holding position markings. In a
simulation environment, OSM would provide an excellent data source." - it
would be 'excellent' only if it conformed to the real and virtual data
models already in the world.
