There has been a lot of new airport requests and here is the official way of requesting an airport to be added.

1. Go to this link: http://www.vafinancials.com/newsite/scripts/airport_request.php

2. Enter the new airport details.

3. The vafinancials team will approve requests once the airport is verified.

4. Fictional airports can be added IF the ICAO is available.

Hi guys,
It is very important that you check and double check the coordinates, and then enter them with the correct way. Cut and pasted from entry form;
"REQUIRED MUST BE DECIMAL FORMAT (example: 40.333333 or -40.333333) North = Negative number / South = Positve number
Airport Longtitude: REQUIRED MUST BE DECIMAL FORMAT (example: 122.23456 or -122.23456) West = Negative number / East = Positive number"

If your airport is south of the equator; like 05.xxxxxS you will precede the number with a "-" as shown in the example. If the airport is in the west coordinate i.e. 125.xxxxxW then it will be precede by a "-" as shown in the example.

When you enter a New Airport please post a list, on this board, of the ICAO's that you used.
We can then let you know they were entered, and if any had to be deleted.
