I have been working many long hours on cleaning up the international airport data and unfortunately it was much worse than I thought. Ever since the US government stopped publishing the international data in 2006, it has been a very tedious and laborious process.

So here are the plans for the release. As soon as I can I will be releasing the basic airport data with the name, location, etc. Definitely no frills here but it will be enough to get you the basic airport data. The one thing I must verify first is that the ICAO and IATA identifiers are correct. There have been quite a few changes over the years and I want to make sure this is accurate.

In the meantime, I will be building up the database in the background and slowly adding items such as airport diagrams, approach charts, and other detailed information to the website so check back often.

If anyone reading this has a good for international data that is known to be clean please tell me.

And as always, if you have an aviation product that you think would integrate well with this site, such as a flight planner, please contact me so we can discuss it. I’m always looking for ideas to make this site the best aviation site on the web.

Thanks,
Mike
