Pilot Feedback and Airfields
For the very latest news on what we're up to, please see our page on Facebook.
We try to post the same news here and there, but on there we are able to directly solicit feedback and also provide pictures and links which

A little over a year ago, we built upon our fuel price sharing engine and introduced Pilot Feedback, which as you can see has been a very popular way for pilots to rate airfields, leave comments about them, notify others of the prices of fuel and landing fees and whether food is available on-site.
We are currently putting the finishing touches on an enhancement which will allow airfield owners and operators to post information directly into SkyDemon. This will show up as definitive fuel prices, landing fees and facility availability, and highlight the airfield when viewing feedback (like in this screenshot). We will also enable posting of warnings about temporary conditions (such as a waterlogged runway) which will be clearly shown to anybody planning to fly to the airfield. One of our goals is to encourage more people to fly more often, so we're working on a way for airfield owners to post details of forthcoming events at their airfield (fly-ins, barbecues, that sort of thing) which could be shown in SkyDemon by somebody looking for inspiration for a flying destination.
If you're an airfield owner or operator, please get in touch directly so we can give you the tools you need to get started with this functionality. If you're a pilot, feel free to comment here on what other information you'd like us to make it easy for airfields to share directly with you as a SkyDemon user. We look forward to bringing more pilots together!
