Airport Activity View Recommendation


#1

The Airport View is too cumbersome to use easily. To determine airport activity in a chronological order requires mentally combining the four tables, and reversing the way the activity is listed so it is in chronological order. A date would be helpful, as well as the state the airports are in. A pending or enroute flight could be identified with an “E” or “P”. A more useful view would be something like the table below. Notes: the table should display as columns of information, but it seems to be running together. The origination / destination airports are in one column, but this could be split into two columns to make it easier to see arrivals and departures.

For the airport view, I’m more interested in knowing the time an aircraft is arriving or departing the airport, and don’t really care what time an arriving aircraft departed, or the time a departing aircraft will arrive at its destination. If I want that information I can click on the individual aircraft.
