You can create new airfields on the Tables – Airfield page. Disregard the ICAO and the IATA labels, read this as 4-character code (ICAO) and 3-character code (IATA) placeholder.
To avoid conflicts with airfields in other countries, we recommend to using the letter Q for special airfields, like QABC or Q123, since Q is not used by any other country worldwide.
Or, you can use numeric values, like 0001, 0002, etc – see further.
The new airfield code will be printed in the departure and arrival columns of your logbook. However, for numeric values, the software will print the airfield name in your logbook.
- you create new airfield QMOG or ZZZZ / GAR with airfield name “My Own Garden”, the logbook shows QMOG or GAR in the departure and/or arrival column
- you create new airfield 1234 or ZZZZ / 999 with airfield name “Chester Hospital Roof”, the software prints Chester Hospital Roof in the logbook
We recommend to insert the co-ordinates for these landing spots. Coordinates are required to define sunrise, sunset and auto-calculate night time.
mccPILOTLOG comes with a 40,000 airfields database. You can additionally import packages for special operation airfields, such as all landing spots around the Maldives islands, all oil rig platforms in the European North Sea, South Pole expedition snow strips, etc. These packages can be imported from the Tables – Airfield page. If you also operate into a special regions, please contact the Helpdesk to set-up a new package.
