New pilot search by airport and zip code

Post by mikegreen » Sat May 30, 2015 6:36 pm

Today the forum was updated with a little more help in finding pilots. As some of you know, the older Google-map KML-based searches no longer work, as Google removed support for them earlier this year.

As of now, two new search pages are online, one to search for pilots around a zip code: ... ersZip.php

And another to search for pilots around an airport code: ... irport.php

Both these pages will show active pilot users within the distance specified around the zip or airport code. The list is sorted by the pilots closest to the searched location, then sorted by the pilot’s last forum activity.
You can click on the username to goto the forum's user page, where you can PM or see details of the user. Also the airport ID will take you to the AOPA airport directory with address and FBO details.

If you wish to PM multiple pilots, best to open two tabs and copy/paste the usernames into the TO of a new private message. The private message TO box will accept multiple usernames, one on each line.

The zip code search is also linked from trip requests. There are two new links, one to show pilots within 50 miles of the sending zip code, and another to show the same within 50 miles of the receiving zip code.
