ICAO / IATA Codes and Airfield names

Postby GOOSE » Mon May 03, 2010 1:54 pm

In order to prevent confusion and to ease understanding of posts, please be aware of the following amendment to Fighter Control rules.

The use of ICAO and IATA codes purely as a means of identifying a location is now formally not allowed.

Those who wish to include ICAO and IATA codes along with airfield names please feel free, but as previously stated, the name of the airfield must be included first.

Fighter Control staff would ideally like you to use full airfield names at all times rather than just Cby or Lossie. However obviously Tacan beacon identifiers can still be used in the monitoring section as part of an airway but not the airfield itself.

This ensures everyone is using the same standard and prevents confusion.

And a further bump on this. Please be careful and make sure that your posts are understandable to all.

Cheers. :)

Many thanks for that!!. Despite all my interesting years around aviation, I have always had to rack my ageing brains as to which was BOH EGSS etc., Cheers.

Gents,

Can there be a reminder about this again please, as it apppears to be coming back in various posts I've noticed recently. Several posts have a question asking where the poster means but perhaps a reminder by the staff that they shouldn't be doing it at all ought to be posted on the thread in question? It really cannot be beyond the abilities of people posting to type in the name of an airfield surely?

Well said Gary - after all it only takes about 3 seconds longer to type the airfield name instead and also saves members having to google it.

Can we have the same regarding serials please?
It doesn't take much to write down the name of an aircraft either. Keep having to google serial numbers just to get the type of aircraft!

This information link says 'You are not authorised to read this forum.' Can I have an explanation one way or the other please?

Thank you

It sounds like the thread has been moved into the Staff section - that's the only section that normal members don't have the permission to access.

I've had a look, the original post and it was made by a former staff member who no longer is a member of the forum. I'm guessing it was moved while a new one could be drawn up
