problem with airport identifier


#1

Who do I need to contact to get our new airport identifier into FlightAware’s database? This is a great site but I can’t monitor my own airport right now because the database only recognizes the old identifier, which of course is not being used on inbound or outbound traffic.


#2

And othe people who are in charge of the database cannot help you because you forgot one little detail: The name and old identifier of the airport.


#3

Actually, I was trying to find out who I needed to contact, so I didn’t bother with giving the new identifier AGAIN as I had in an earlier post ( without reply.)

Since you seem to know who is in charge of editing that database, let me give the information again:

8S5 has been changed to KLRO.

And the name of the airport has been changed since my first post, from East Cooper Airport to Mt. Pleasant Regional Airport.

Thanks!

No, I don’t know the actual person but as one who has worked in tech support, I tend to look at questions and see what information was left out that would help solve the problem.


#5

I e-mailed the support dept about the change, we’ll see if that works.


#6

OF COURSE! As soon as I read your post, I realized that was such a logical answer and I missed it completely. Thanks for your help!

By the way KLRO is where I do my flight training, flycoastalaviation.com/
