If you have better information, please provide it.
Unfortunately this seaplane base doesn't show up on the aeronautical charts at http://skyvector.com/?ll=25.761061845308774,-79.23504639034341&chart=301&zoom=1 and according to Wikipedia the airline that used to service this base, Chalk's International Airline, lost its flying charter in 2007 so it's possible that it's closed.
Do you really think posting the exact same comment every god damned day is going do help get this airport developed? This web site is a resource for pilots and passenger around the entire world, and it is not run by the people in power in Amravati or Maharasa or anywhere else in India, and I can almost guarantee it's not read by them either. So give it a rest already, you're just annoying people.
I've moved the airport marker, but it still doesn't look like an airport.
Reply to @Pivot: I believe in that case that David (the owner of this site) has been assigning arbitrary ids to airports that don't have an official designator.
Reply to @Pivot: Do you have a new ICAO id for this airport?
I wrote to the FAA about the fact that they still have this listed as CNB9, and they wrote me back asking exactly when it changed. The person asking said "I need this information to track down in what AIRAC Canada publication it was modified for FAA's history file and as an authorized source to update of FAA (NASR) data base." Anybody here know when it changed?
Has anybody figured out why this airport of all the airports on this site seems to get all the random drive-by spam? I must delete 2 or 3 comments a week from here. (And I'm still not sure whether "Hello. And Bye" and the Russian one are spam). It makes me wonder if the "code for this script" comment is about some spamming software.
The FAA still has this listed as CNB9 instead of CYLS. I've sent them an update.
Reply to @YD1TNK: Made the change - thanks.
It certainly seems that way, and Google is known to do that. But for the definitive answer, you'd have to ask Google since its their map.
Somebody needs to alert the FAA then, because it's still in their database and according to them they verified the data with the facility owner in 1993.
OIGG (RASHT/SARDAR-E-JANGAL) and OINZ(SARI/DASHT-E-NAZ) are two different airports.
Location and ICAO code fixed.
"There's no place like this place anyplace near this place, so this must be the place"
Reply to @prattsoplenty: The Wikipedia link goes to a Wikimapia article about the Navy base, not the seaplane base. Not sure if I'd trust that. Skyvector shows the point pretty close to where we already had it. http://skyvector.com/?ll=53.399114444,-167.5519&chart=301&zoom=3
I can see why the confusion, though. If you zoom in on the long narrow strip of land that looks like a runway, those X things do kind of look like airplanes. http://goo.gl/maps/qtHCe Zoom in a bit further, and it becomes obvious they're not, however.
Which part of "we rely on Google Maps for our imagery" aren't you understanding?
Reply to @david: It's not in George Plews lists (CFS airports, CFS heliports, WAS seaplane bases) that I can find.
I moved it to the location in the FAA database, but that put it in the courtyard of the medical center, so I visually moved the point over to that weird looking pad on the northeast.
Location fixed now.
I've added a POI at something that looks like it might be an airstrip that's closer to Aerodrome Road.
Reply to @david: I don't trust that list, because it doesn't list Genesee County Airport, which changed its FAA id from 3G8 to GVQ because it had weather reporting and so therefore needed an ICAO identifier KGVQ. That happened when the US adopted METAR/TAF back in the late 1990s/early 2000s.
Reply to @david: http://www.activitae.com/cgi-bin/htmlSearch.pl - I don't know if this actually looks at the ICAO database, or if it just applies the standard rule to the FAA ids. But it lists KOWD (and not abominations like K7G0 like I've seen in some places).
