    AER means “Approach End of Runway”  

    Source: Instrument Procedures Handbook. Appendix C (page C-6) on the PDF here it is on page 279:


    Used in this NOTAM:

    !COS 08/066 COS OBST CRANE 6316 (200 AGL) 3975 SW AER 31 DURG DALGT HRS

    Used here would mean at Colorado Springs, a 200′ AGL crane is 3,975 feet southwest of the approach end of runway 31 during daylight hours.
