Operations: Introducing New Top Level Airport Module

Overview

Introducing the new Airport module. This top-level module allows for a quick search via AC-U-KWIK, full management of your custom airports, and an easy way to create new custom airports/heliports from a central location. This module refers to airports that already have an ICAO, FAA, and/or IATA code as system managed airports. Custom airports are manually created by the user to their custom specifications.

Airports List

Easily identify which airports are custom and which ones are system managed at a glance with the lock icon. System managed airports are identified with the lock icon in list view, while the custom airports do not.

System managed and custom airports identify the preferred code with a green check. System managed airports assign the preferred code in the following order: ICAO -> FAA -> IATA.

From the list view, you can quickly identify the type of airport code by hovering the cursor over the Preferred Code value, activating the hover text that will then tell the user if the code is an ICAO, FAA, IATA, or Custom Code.

Custom airport codes will always be the default for the preferred value in the code field.
