My experience has been people who have a negative opinion of someone or something are much more likely to expend the energy and the time to complain either on-line or in some other fashion, than those who have a positive or neutral experience. So, I dont put much weight on the information on airnav to start with. With just one stop, visitors can find local, regional and state maps, purchase discount tickets to major attractions, make hotel. On the one hand its not like a consumer reports which accepts no advertising and tests products in their independent labs with nothing to gain or lose if they tick off a given manufacturer. Once that becomes the general consensus within the pilot community, how much ad revenue can AirNav generate?? If AirNav is going to allow any comments, then they should be comprehensive as long as they don't violate the terms they previously specified. My comments were not offensive and only stated the facts of my experience. To me this is censorship and really defeats the purpose of AirNav's service.
Name: Email: Phone: How can I help you? I hope people don't use it for real flight planning but at least the site has a popup windows when I visited it which says it should not be used for navigation. A parallel taxiway was constructed in 1991 and is located northeast of the aircraft tie down area and provides access to runway 17. It is easy to find autogas at airports across Europe, Australia, Hong Kong, India, Philippines, the Republic of Macedonia, South Korea, Serbia, and Turkey. I just want the news, and okay I'll entertain your ad because that's how it's paid for but leave the other crap out. I won't ever be flying into Allegan as long as he owns the place.

I believe you are right, but why would a business even want to take the chance? Business being business, the bad apples tend not to last long. Certainly, we all agree a negative comment can adversely affect a business, and in reality anything the business says to counter the negative comment will be seen by the many as just being self serving. I cannot argue with your point of view, it just seems to me in the grand scheme of things, if you get information on a business from a commercial website that the business is paying to be on, expecting the site not to protect the interests of the business seems to me to be setting yourself up for disappointment.
I put their courtesy listing back on today and your comment is displayed. I have first-hand experience with the AirNav phenomenon from several years ago now. They have the ability to do this with a paid subscription. Apparently they can direct AirNav to not accept comments, but at best the optics of such a decision are poor. We specialize in Citation, King Air, Gulfstream, Challenger, Falcon and larger aircraft.
In any case, I am not a celebrity, and do not expect to be treated specially. Also, at times, pilots are self-important buffoons and complain about petty crap. Find fuel stations that sell ethanol-free gasoline in the United States and Canada. I believe you are right, but why would a business even want to take the chance? Can I blame them for doing that? The Runway The single north south runway measures 4654 long by 150 wide, is the third largest in North Central Washington and has the capability to land large aircraft. It looks like AirNav only has airport diagrams for 1.
This is only good business practice as far as AirNav is concerned. Use the map below to view the location of Mogas airports in the United States. The world of customer reviews is a bit tricky. On the other hand they won't get advertising dollar 1 if they don't have pilots visiting their site. If that goes away, I have not reason in the world to ever look at the site. Centrally located in the heart of the beautiful Southern California coastline, Oceanside is considered the gateway city between metropolitan San Diego and Los Angeles.
Yes, I always noticed that the flight planning room and associated equipment was behind a locked door, as were other typical flight crew amenities this was before smartphones, tablets, and WiFi were ubiquitous , but they would gladly shuttle us back and forth to a local restaurant when we'd visit and didn't have a car. It isn't, and they don't make it clear that reviews may be selectively edited by their paid advertisers, deceiving the reader and disrespecting those who take the time to leave reviews. As someone else mentioned, if there isn't at least a hint of objectivity on AirNav's part regarding the comments, they are of little value in a world where the airport and navaid information is available in many other places. They dont make any claim about it being 'unadulterated'. Need to go somewhere beyond the range of your aircraft or your bladder? I got a flyer in the mail from Derek Mulder of Ace Aviation. This is only good business practice as far as AirNav is concerned.
I think the comment about how much we payed for the AirNav search is irrelevant though. Good businesses should be interested in candid reviews and mature enough to handle negative comments, justified or not. There are areas where parts of the chart are clearly hacked off. The fuel There is no prist additive in the Jet A fuel. It's their right to run their business however they see fit, but that doesn't change the fact that comments posted on their site cannot be viewed as credible.

Often when a business responds to a negative complaint, the response often sounds self serving and then compounds the negativity.
I don't click on banners, and I dont click on logos. For me knowing how a website is supported is imperative to me to determine how to interpret the subjective information I get from a website. I sent AirNav an email today telling them that I think they should reconsider allowing this practice as I believe they will lose credibility with the large group of pilots that use their service to get information from other pilots. Often the best policy is not even respond. He told me that airnav would not update the information unless he purchased an ongoing listing with them. If that goes away, I have not reason in the world to ever look at the site. Wondering if your airplane is approved? We don't know they have been kicked out until someone brings it to our attention.
