FAMO is no longer in the AIP

Because we as an airfield aren’t compliant with ICAO regulations/requirements (Para 2), FAMO airfield data is no longer captured within the AIP.  This isn’t unique to FAMO.  There are 82 registered airfields and 80 Helistops (dd 24 Jun 18) which like FAMO, don’t comply to ICAO requirements.  As a service to the aviation community, SACAA has created an aerodrome/heliport directory within the AIC system.  The AIC link below will assist.  
So the information is still available to us in the aviation community – merely captured “elsewhere".
If there are any omission or errors that catch your eye, please advise.
