Airport Database

Recommended Posts

Would it be helpful to have a full table dump of every airport? Over 6000 airports, which you can just use phpMyAdmin to import them?

Wouldn't it be a bit cumbersome selecting for schedules, though?

But helpful for those random charter flights

It may be a bit on the cumbersome side.

The airports would show up on site in the form of a drop down menu I'm guessing so one can choose them in admin panel or when filing manual pireps?

I actually did put all the Airports in but it only slows down the Administration portion of the site. i.e having to read all the data from the Airports table.

In the end just have the ones I want and it's nice and easy...

Hi,

Is it possible to change the list arraiport and depairport in a text field ? As the pilot can enter the ICAO instead of looking for it in the list. Because I would like to have my pilot flying Charter flight, without those flights added in the database.

Thanks

;)

Yes, check the addons forum/search it. It's come up before

If you look in github, do a search, look for phpvms, thats it, you will find an airport database that has thousands of airports, I would weed it down before uploading it, as it is very very large and it WILL drag down your Server if you upload all of it at once, no question about it. It may even lock it up on the site. Took me a little time to weed it out to what I wanted, but it was better then entering all of that info the hard way/long way, without a doubt.

Hope that helps you.

Jim
