Create Aviation Geodatabase (Aviation Data Management)
Applies one of the ArcGIS for Aviation data models to the target geodatabase and configures it for use with the software. The supported data models are the Esri Aeronautical Information System (AIS) Charting and Esri Airports.
You can create the AIS and Airports schemas in enterprise geodatabases. You can also create Airports schemas in file geodatabases.
When using an enterprise geodatabase, feature classes and tables are registered as versioned and enabled for archiving.
The default horizontal and vertical coordinate system for the AIS schema is WGS 1984. For the Airports schema, the default horizontal coordinate system is NAD83 and the default vertical coordinate system is NAVD88. You can specify a different spatial reference, but you must define both vertical and horizontal (X/Y and Z) systems.

The following Python window script demonstrates how to use the CreateAviationGeodatabase tool.
# set the workspace environment arcpy.env.workspace="c:/data" # Applies the Airports schema in the egdb referenced in c:/data/aero_egdb.sde arcpy.CreateAviationGeodatabase_aviationmanagement("aero_egdb.sde","AIRPORTS")
