Now if we can only get a lat/long of each and create a website that auto links the co-ordinates to MS or Google maps. Maybe even with a "allocated to" and "status" (ie free/allocated/building/testing/released).... Plot plot, scheme, scheme, do I have time, do I have time..... {SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif

I'm working on collecting all the data for the currently released OZx airfields and adding them to a map I started here:

A few? - a few missing???? - the majority are here?

Sorry Guys - sometimes I just sit here shaking my head

Only 3 weeks ago a similar question regarding the ICAO codes was raised and I pointed out that no-one needed to knock themselves out about it as the bulk of the work had been done years ago



I offered to send the spreadsheets with the 2908 (thats right 2908 of them) locations hunted down by Mal Lloyd in 4 different variants - code 1st OR location 1st in both .xls and .csv to anyone that wanted them

I even bumped it and told everyone where to find it for themselves at Avsim - it would appear that Jay also hosts it now over at Voz's repository

I must admit to being somewhat dumbfounded - the hard work has been done including ALL the Lat/Lon's (sorry - does not include kml's or whatever GE uses) and the thread should have popped up at least the 3 times I posted in it over 4 days

I hate seeing people re-inventing wheels

Sorry again if I seem a little "sparky" but this has been raised so many times before on pretty well every Ozzie forum over the years and to have brought it up again here so recent and having had to bump it to get a reaction - it kinda makes an ol'fart wonder sometimes

Anyway - once again - anyone interested? - I can email them OR you can get them from Avsim OR from Voz

Have a great day

I just bought the AOPA 2008/09 National Airfield Directory, it's got different information to the air services australia icao pdf which would have over 2000 listings some not in the excel spreadsheet you have linked. The australian geographic database has a convenient search function that will give lats and longs of all of the icao codes you have in the spreadsheet. None of these information sources is complete - eg none of then have the strip I did at Callington, they all differ from each other and on the spreadsheet many a number of strips listed have sinced been closed down. I appreciate having many resources from which to chose, and thank anyone who is prepared to put the effort in to make information available, it's their time to do so if they wish. What people choose to do with information offered is their choice also. I come here for fun and support of like minded people in pursuit of my hobby {SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_confused.gif

Yeah, the ERSA only contains information for all licensed and some unlicensed airfields. The aopa airfield guide is a good thing, not sure if its available for free online?

But at least everyone now knows where to look when they are trying to find an ICAO. {SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif

well...Quinny blossom darling when you find your denture paste and cheer up again, why don't you put a post up with the title of "Australian ICAO List (complete)" and attach the Ixl,cvs,whatever and save us a lot of time and bemoaning

And no I'm not reinventing the wheel just posting up a general list of ICAOs of the major-medium Airstrips in a Format that's accessible to everyone.
in fact in the "other" amazing post cunningly disguised as "Does anyone have..?" the best you could do was point people in the vague direction of a filedownload site with the instructions to search for some dudes name...
so don't knock your self out or anything will you
now go enjoy your dinner Sir {SMILIES_PATH}/icon_twisted.gif

Actually, thinking about it - I think someone might be already doing that. ???

Yes, I am.

I have a work in progress that will be a hybrid of "here is an airfield and all of its particulars" (runways, alt, lat, long, etc), coupled with "and here are details of where you can find FSX/FS9/XPlane downloads for it, and the details of who built it".

This will be designed to be multi-purpose in that general users can vote for airfields they'd like to see developed and airfields they like, and devs can see what's popular and flag an airfield as work in progress, etc, etc. Essentially, I want it to be a one-stop shop reference point for not only Australia (points back to OZx & ORBX & private builders), but eventually spanning the globe.

We are now finalising some of the more complicated parts of the system, and hope to have it up and ready by the end of the year - I'll put out some calls for beta testers soon.
