FlyLogical embraces openAIP

I'm pleased to announce that I have recently hooked-up with to provide weekly automated updates to the iNavCalc airport COMMS FREQUENCIES database. is a free, crowd-sourced resource for global aviation data. I encourage you to register and start contributing.

I was first put on to a couple of months ago by a FlyLogical user who suggested it might be a useful resource to incorporate into iNavCalc.  I wholeheartedly agree, not least since the "official" bodies don't seem to be able to provide such (see my previous rant on the subject), and because the team make it straightforward to consume their global data, from a "machine-to-machine" perspective.

For now, I have only implemented global airport COMMS FREQUENCY automated updates. In future, I will extend to NAVAIDS. Also, the "machine-to-machine" updates lag the website by a number of days, so do not expect to find website updates propagated immediately to iNavCalc. Instead, you will have to wait a week or so for the catchup to occur.

Many thanks to for providing this resource.
