I changed my preferences but am not getting these emails. What can I do to fix it?

The airports database is not up to date. Your airport is still listed a 3M3. I'll see if I can add KFGU to the database.

EDIT: It should work now (I hope)

In my profile, I listed my airport location and set my flight distance to 200 miles. I haven't received any e-mail notices of new transport requests. Is this because no flights have been requested within 200 miles of my airport or because I haven't done something properly in my profile? Thanks for your help.

Elliott, I double checked and as far as I can see, you have entered your distance information correctly. However, there is presently a request that is originating in Frederick , MD, which is I believe where you are based, so you should have received notification of this unless you changed your profile distance after this request post was made? The request is dated July 15.

I would also suggest checking your spam or junk mail folder and adding the pilotsnpaws address to your safe email address file in case your ISP is rejecting the notices.

Let us know, we can research this further for you if needed!

I have my preference set to fly 300 miles one way. There is a new posting yesterday from Inslip, NY to NH.
Neither one is more than 150 miles from me and you would practically fly over my airport. I did not receive any notice of this trip even though I have received them in the past.
Could you please check,
Thanks,

Next reply, sorry for two so quick -
The reason is KLZD isn't in our airport list. I just added it...
Did it recently change identifiers?

Sorry for the trouble. You should be getting notification now. I'll also run thru the list of airports folks have and send a note to those having invalid identifiers... try to keep up with that, just haven't in the last few months.
