Dispatch’s Airport view provides detailed information about any airport in the world in a single, scrollable page.

Click the Info button next to any populated airport field on the Flight Edit view, then click “Go to Airport page” to open that airport’s information page in a new browser tab.

At the top of the Airport View, is a row of buttons that allows you to automatically scroll to each section containing different kinds of airport information. A blue underline indicates which section is currently being viewed, and will move from section to section as you scroll (manually or automatically) through the page.

 

1. Overview

The topmost section of the Airport view contains basic location information such as city, state/province, and country; geographic coordinates; elevation; pattern altitude; and magnetic variation. On the left is a thumbnail of the airport diagram that you can click to expand; click on the thumbnail again or the expanded diagram to unexpand it.

On the right is an interactive map allowing you to overlay different maps and weather layers on top of the airport’s terminal area. By default, this map will show ForeFlight’s Aeronautical Map, but you can click the Street button at the bottom of the map to overlay a street map, and click the Weather button to overlay the Composite Radar layer on top of the Aeronautical Map. Click the button in the top-right corner of the map to expand it, and click the button again to unexpand the map.

2. General Information

The General Info section provides more detailed information about the airport’s navigation features, FIR/ARTCC and Flight Service operators, operation hours, available fuel types, customs availability, and manager, owner, and airport contact details.

3. NOTAMs

View all past, current, and future NOTAMs that have been issued for the airport. Dispatch divides NOTAMs according to their type, with sub-tabs for Airport, Obstacles, ARTCC, and TFR NOTAMs. If enough NOTAMs of a single type are available then the NOTAMs section becomes a scrollable view with a scrollbar on the right.

4. Runways

View information about each of the airport’s runways. On the left is a simple diagram indicating the runway’s orientation, along with runway dimensions and surface material and condition. To the right are two columns with information about each runway, including glideslope indicators, displaced threshold, lighting types, and touchdown elevation.

5. Weather

The Weather section shows the airport’s latest METAR with color-coded flight category and plain English weather information, the latest Digital ATIS (D-ATIS) if supported at that airport, and the airport’s latest TAF with flight category and weather information for each forecast period provided.

6. FBOs

View a list of Fixed Based Operators providing services at the airport. A short summary of each FBO’s fuel prices, phone number, and radio frequency is shown by default, but you can click the “Show More” button beneath each summary to view more detailed information, such as an FBO-provided description, address, contact information, services, amenities, and supported payment methods. Click “Show Less” beneath the expanded details to unexpand them.

If you have a linked JetFuelX account with contract fuel membership pricing available at an FBO, your lowest contract fuel prices for each fuel type offered at that FBO are listed beside an orange “JFX »” indicator. Any price tiers associated with your contact fuel membership are also listed in the expanded FBO details. Learn more about JetFuelX here.

7. Procedures

The Procedures section includes links to view charts for any Airport diagrams and Approach, Arrival, and Departure procedures. Click on a procedure name to view its chart in PDF format in a new browser tab from which you can save or print the chart.

NOTE: Dispatch does not currently support viewing linked Jeppesen charts on the web, but our team is working to implement this capability in the near future.

8. Frequencies

The Frequencies section provides a comprehensive list of airport frequencies and related phone numbers grouped by frequency type, such as Approach, Departure, Ground, Tower, Weather Advisory, Clearance, etc.

9. Remarks

The Remarks section contains important pieces of information about the airport as found in the FAA’s Chart Supplement (AF/D). These can include information concerning aeronautical facilities, service and maintenance availability, procedures or hazards, and other knowledge considered essential for the safe and efficient operation of aircraft at that airport.
