Change Airport Location


#1

Hello all.

I have just started uploading my planeplotter data to Flightaware (this is fairly new to me)

The data I receive covers a wide area of Western NSW.

How can I change my Airport location.

Flightaware has allocated YWST, which is Westmead Hospital.

The Hospital may have a heliport but it hardly classes as an airport.

How can I change my profile to include YSSY or YSBK.

Thanks all.

I updated this for you.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi all,

Same problem here. My location is approx. 5 kms northeast of EDDS (Stuttgart, Germany) but in my stats Flightaware indicates ENAL (Alesund, Norway) as the closest airport.

Could you please check on this and update?

Thanks a lot in advance!

just a - let´s say - funny request from my side: is it possible to set the airport location to XMUC (old airport Munich Riem) as this is only 1 km from my site? If not possible, please set all my feeder sites to ETSE. Thx very much in advance.


#7

Thanks but still have ENAL as closest airport :frowning:


#8

Unfortunately we don’t support XMUC so I’ve set it to ETSE.


#9

Odd, I’ve flipped it back again.

if you are 1km close to Riem then your closest airport ist EDDM/MUC and not ETSE Erding.
One of my sites is very close to you…in Riem too

@eddmmuc: Nope :slight_smile:, from my very location (Feldkirchen) Erding has an air line distance of 22km, Munich Airport of 26 km.

After PM doesn´t seem to work, again on this way:

Hi dbaker,

unfortunately 3 of my stations do not feed anymore after changing the location, feeds are not seen as live in my feeder stats. These are 2 beaglebones and 1 raspberry, piaware and faup1090 are running on all devices. Just an example:
