This is the support website for the Airfields app from Flying Pilot Software. Airfields is available on the iTunes App Store.
The app includes a database of tens of thousands of airports from a user maintained public domain database. The airport information presented in the app include the name, city, ICAO code, IATA code, location (lat/long), distance and bearing from the device's current position, runway information, field elevation, web and Wikipedia links, and METAR/TAF button. All of this information is searchable by airport name, city name, ICAO and IATA codes. Also, there is a map presentation which shows the airports around you.
The list is quite long, so a method of editing the list to specific types of airports, and specific continents is available in the settings tab. If the app runs slower than you would like, then deselect those airport types and continents that you don't use. Also, if an airport doesn't show up in your search, make sure that the applicable airport type and continent are selected.
There is also a tab for favorite airports. The table is fully editable for changing the order, or deleting airports. To add an airport, when it is selected from an airport search, or from the map tab, there will be a '+' button in the upper right corner. Press this to add the airport to your favorites.
Currently, internet access is needed for the map and web (homepage, wikipedia, METAR/TAF) functions. Also, location information (GPS/WiFi/Cell Towers) is needed to center the map, and provide distance/bearing information. All other information is stored within the app's database.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact our support team at email@example.com and we will provide a quick reply. Currently, we are working to provide more features in future updates, to include airport radio frequencies, a static (cached) map solution, and perhaps even an airport diagram.
Now, for the cautions. Please do not use this app as your primary means of operating an aircraft. It can be helpful in finding airports as a supplement to your flight planning, but can't obviously be used for flight planning itself. It is also not designed to be used in-flight. Also, the database can't be assumed to be accurate nor current, as it relies on a dated pull from a publicly/user updated online database.
Again, thanks for your interest in the Airfields App.
