Creating an airfield

G’day all,

Recently just built a raspberry pi and got it setup at a new mine site. They’ve developed the strip and just recently got an ICAO code for it.

How does it work on FR for getting that strip into the database/recognising that it exists?

What is the airport?

Labona, new ICAO code of YLBA.
Just recently created. Wasn’t too sure if this site doesn’t get the new data till maybe the next AIRAC cycle?

With some exceptions, we generally prefer to hand curate the airport list currently. If you have the details about the airport you can post it here or in general e-mail contact@flightaware.com with the details. We need information such as: code(s), name, latitude/longitude, MSL elevation, city/state/country, time zone.

Thanks for your help Eric.

Details as follows
Code is: YLBA
Location: Labona, Australia
Time zone: GMT +10
location: S22 00 14, E 146 21 50 ( DD MM SS, DDD MM SS)
elevation: 816ft

IATA code hasn’t been created yet for it.

Hi Eric, thanks for doing that. How does it also work in relation to adding schedules? This something thats automatically picked or manually put in? cheers

We receive airline schedules from OAG each month. If the airline schedule is published to OAG then we will get it on the next monthly refresh (at the beginning of each month).
