Some time today, while I was in the air over Ottawa taking my 24-month IFR renewal flight test (passed), OurAirports ticked past 100 registered members. People are leaving so many comments that I can barely keep up with reading all of them, and there are many maps I haven’t looked at yet. The personal airports-visited maps I have seen are fascinating — most pilots have clusters around their home airports, with a few further away from long cross countries, but some follow other patterns, like long, east-west lines. A few have made maps of their airline travel, and I plan on giving a way soon to distinguish airports visited as a passenger from airports visited as a pilot.
By the way, the 100th member was MarkAnd, who’s done most of his flying in Ohio and western Pennsylvania. At the time of writing, we have 103 members in total. Thanks to MarkAnd and to everyone else who’s contributed to the site.
(I’ve moved the site to a fast, dedicated server, and the performance problems seem to be over.)
