Global Airport Database Description
Global Airports is a worldwide database of over 5000 of the world's principle airports and their runways permitting location and orientation through the medium of Google® Maps. Within this application the scope of 'principle airports' is defined as those facilities that have both an IATA and an ICAO designator indicating that they are recognised as significant by both organisations. This database contains many locations ranging from major international airports to airstrips on coral islands to isolated dirt strips in the jungle.

The database contains the following fields:

- International name
- Local name
- IATA 3-letter code - like'JFK'
- ICAO 4-letter code - like 'KJFK'
- Country
- Region (EUR / PAC / ASI / AMR)
- UTC Time Zone
- Runway threshold coordinates*
- Landing Distance Available (metres)*

*Where supplied

Fields can be searched individually without the need to employ wildcard characters or some useful group searches are already supplied. Where runway information is published the threshold Lat/Long coordinates for each runway can be viewed on a satellite image of the airfield. In map or satellite view the airport 'tower' or runway 'windsock' markers may be touched to reveal the precise Lat/Long coordinates. For the interest of the enthusiast this database also contains locations of historically significant civil and military airports that are now closed.

The 'City Pair' presentation depicts the great-circle track from the selected airport to a given destination. The flight time between the two airports is calculated for a typical jet airliner cruising at 480kts in still air.

The information contained in this database is supplied for general interest only. It is compiled from uncontrolled sources whose continuing accuracy cannot be guaranteed so should not be relied upon for operational use.
