Metar/Taf on Portal

#1

Post by Red Baron » Fri Dec 11, 2015 3:33 pm

Good day,

We're in the process of implementing a Metar/Taf system on the portal page. It will work with a drop down box where you can select the airport that you want to get data for. So far the list contains:

FAGM - Rand Airport
FACT - Cape Town
FALE - Durban
FAPE - Port Elizabeth
FAGG - George
FAEL - East London
FAKM - Kimberley

We can edit this list and get more airports in there (provided there is actual weather data for that airport). All I want to ask you (the end user) is for you to post the 4 letter ICAO code of the airport that you want to see added to the list.

Thanks!
