Until recently, the 500 ft rule (from persons, vehicles etc.) applied to practice approaches anywhere other than a government aerodrome, a licensed aerodrome or a "training aerodrome" (restricted to training ops). This has now been extended to any "aerodrome" so the category "training aerodrome" is no longer needed.

This begs the question: how is an "aerodrome" defined - as distinct from a landing site which is not an aerodrome (private strip)?

By the ANO 255 definition is seems any landing strip in regular use is an aerodrome.
