LINKS: FIND AIRPORTS, Routes, Nautical miles between airport

Post by admin » Thu Mar 05, 2009 8:20 am

Hi all,

The pilots ultimately choose which airports to use but here are some suggestions of online sites you can go to and utitlize for your area.

By researching various locations, this will aid the pilots in choosing the correct airport for them and will also give you a location to work from with regards to distance you will need to drive to send and receive your animals. Just read and follow the instructions on each site for information. You can then share availability of airports in your area with the pilot who has committed to help you. From there, the pilot will choose. Just might save them a little time and those of us in rescue are the ones who need to go that extra mile before the skymiles! Thank you to pilot Jason for his suggestion and instructions on how to use skyvector!

Thanks,
Debi

For those requesting rescue transport you may visit http://www.SkyVector.com to plot distances between airports.

On the right side under LOCATION LOOKUP in the text box enter the desired route (if you know the airports) for example:
KSMO (space) KSBP.

Make sure there is a K in front of the airport identifier.
Also make sure there is a space between each airport.

CLICK "GO"

The distance and route line will be displayed next to the departure airport.
You can drag the map around to view the route or nearby airports and cities.

If you need help don't hesitate to ask around, most pilots are familiar with this website.

Another site that I've found convenient for locating US airports is AirNav. It can be searched by identifier, city/state, and can be browsed by state as well.

http://www.airnav.com/airports/

Enter the "City, ST", airport name, or airport ID in the box or click on the "Browse by U.S. State" link to see a list by state. The database includes public airports, private airports, and helipads soo the results need to be filtered and the pilot needs to make the final determination as to suitability. It can give you the identifiers to plug into the Skyvector site.

So, if you want to locate nearby airports, give it a try.

To this day, after 3 years of flying 540+ hours (private), I still use Google Airport Finder as the fastest way to find an airport in an unknown area. Here's the link:

http://www.airport-data.com/airport-finder.html

The airports are broken down as public/private, airplane and helicopter. Great tool, very fast. I then transfer airport code to FltPlan.com or my iPad (Forflight) and start planning. I highly recommend Forflight HD for you iPad owners, BTW... I now use it exclusively for my IFR approaches and charts, subsription $80/year, great deal! I still keep my local paper copies of airport directory and local approaches (expired) just in case the iPad dies. (Still legal with the 530W/430W).
