Good morning from FlightAware.
Although we have some more exciting upgrades and enhancements (many of which are much anticipated), we’re pleased to announce the beta release of our new “Airport Facilities” feature in the Airport Resource section.
Any registered FlightAware member can add or edit information about FBOs, airport restaurants, or other airport businesses at every airport. Anyone can easily update contact information, hours of operation, fuel prices, services available, and more. This way, FlightAware members can create the most objective airport facility database on the Internet.
Unlike other web sites that offer “pay for play” facility and FBO lists, FlightAware does not accept money for placement or “premier listings” – all information is supplied by our users and without staff intervention. Of course, all revisions are tracked so we can easily detect anomalies or revert any mistakes.
We’ll be expanding this soon and offering lots of new features once the facilities list is populated across the country so that members can add comments, rankings and also enhanced editing functionality to quickly compare changes and update fuel prices at multiple airports.
Take a look at Santa Monica Airport for a simple example of some airport services. Currently, we’ve only populated a bit of the data and will let the people most familiar with the airports fill out the rest.
Add your local aviation business today & let’s see how quickly we can populate fuel prices for the entire nation!
