Hi, quick question, I'd like to log some sightings at Almaty Baiserke airport which has neither IATA nor ICAO code.
Is there a way to do it, or would it have to be a generic "OTT - off-airport" or other?

Thanks

mark it as OFF that is what i did for airports with no code.

Thanks Gary,

I'd like to record where they were seen so could do it as OFF and put in remarks - but most of the sightings at Baiserke were An2s, Mi8s etc so not in the database so I have to add them as Multiple Sightings, meaning I cannot use remarks.

I'll have to ask you therefore to add them to the database - will do that in the other forum!

Cheers

re edit the aircraft then you can put it in comments then. just click on the pencil symbol at the end of your sighting in your log

Doesn't work, Gary. The response is:

"Aircraft Not Found

The selected aircraft could not be found in our database. It may have been manually entered by a user, and therefore airframe information is not available."

you are clicking on the reg try the pencil next to the delete icon on the far right of your entry and just to the right of the airport code(next to).

I am clicking on the pencil at the far right. It brings up the basic record. When I add "Seen at Baiserke"into the comments and click "update sighting", then I get the response "aircraft not found" etc

you will do as it was a manual adding but your log will show it as what you saw it as and i get that with my manual added sightings. it just the airframe is not in the DB or was not at the time of you adding it to your log.
