Fuiloro (Abisu) Airfield

I have corrected the designation and dimensions of this airfield. The outline on the satellite photos as faint, but still discernable.

Oecussi Airport

The VFR chart you provided is for Honolulu International Airport, not Oecussi Airport. Please fix.

Atauro Airport

Disregard previous comment as the LAT + LON on the original site was erroneous. I edited the file and corrected the error. However, from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atauro_Island#Geography comes the following quote: "During Indonesian rule, there was an airstrip north of Vila Maumeta, but now it is unusable by fixed-wing aircraft (IATA designation: AUT (WPAT))." As a result this airport maybe considered closed or at best unused.

Ataura Airport

This looks like a highway strip airfield, not an airport.

Maliana Airport

You have the wrong VFR chart for this airport. Your VFR covers an airport in Japan. Please fix.

Abisu Heliport

The VFR chart you have listed is for Jeju-do in South Korea. Please fix. It would appear this "heliport" is really a highway strip airfield and you indicate a lengthy runway, more so than what a heliport would require. However, is this an airfield or heliport? Please advise.

Delete duplicate entry (KR-0125)

Replace with KR-0214 which has more accurate grid coordinates.

Delete. Duplicate entry. Did show up in search box or map until I added this duplicate.

JP-0071

Delete duplicate.

Camp Shimamatsu JGSDF Heliport

It would appear that the "H" marker has been moved or obliterated.

Toubetsu Sub Base Delete - duplicate entry

This is not an airport. It is a heliport.

Pong Am Dong North (G-802) Airport

It appears to be closed as there are no aircraft to be seen and it looks like a parking lot.

KR-0081

Delete this as it is a duplicate of http://ourairports.com/airports/KR-0082/

KR-0076

Disregard previous comment.

Mokpo Airport

In light of my original comment above, how do categorize this facility as it is still open as an airfield/airbase, but not as a commercial airport? Perhaps you need to add another type airport/airfield/airbase, especially if it has both a military and commercial application. Please advise.

H 811 Helipad

Delete this helipad as it is a duplicate.

C 519

Delete this as it is a duplicate of C-519 that I just edited.

Picture of TIBC1

C-233 Heliport

Delete. This a duplicate of H-233. My error.

Picture of TIBC1

KP-0041

This is a highway strip airfield and LAT + LON were incorrect. I have made the necessary correction.

Picture of TIBC1

KP-0047

Delete this entry as it is a duplicate. Sorry about that.

Picture of TIBC1

C-272

Delete this entry as it is a duplicate. When I edited this site, it created another C-272 with more accurate data. This is the old uncorrected site.

G-239

I question whether this airfield is still used as the north end is being developed as something else. See: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=38.198715&lon=127.222849&z=18&m=b&search=G-239%20Airfield; and https://www.google.com/maps/@38.1987959,127.2205033,213a,35y,90h,41.59t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en

C-406

Your location shows this facility in the parking lot/access road to what looks like an observation location. In addition an airplane (O-1A) is shown adjacent to this facility, but no indication how it got there. See: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=38.319326&lon=128.110344&z=19&m=b&search=Not%20an%20ROK%20Military%20Outpost; and http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=38.319557&lon=128.110727&z=19&m=b&search=O-1A%20%E8%A6%B3%E6%B8%AC%E6%A9%9F%20. The heliport is actually located a short distance down the road from this facility with no runways as indicated in your site. See: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=38.318124&lon=128.109869&z=19&m=b&search=C-406%20Heliport. What's the story? Please advise. I will edit this site to indicate this as C-406 heliport unless someone can demonstrate this is incorrect.

Bongamri (C 263) Heliport

There is an adjacent helipad. See: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37.912763&lon=127.011703&z=19&m=b&search=Bongamri%20(C-263)%20Heliport

H-163

Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_Army_installations_in_South_Korea) indicates that Camp Giant (H-163) is closed.

Picture of TIBC1

H-163 Heliport

Camp Giant Heliport (H-163) is located @[37Β°50’02”N X 126Β°48’56”E]; Camp Custer North Heliport (C-116) is located @[37Β°50’03”N X 126Β°48’56”E]. Is it possible that these two facilities are one and the same or is there a mistake in one or both of them? Please advise as I am totally confused. There is a heliport at H-163.

Picture of TIBC1

C-161 Heliport

There is no sign of any heliport at this location.

Yeonpyeong-Myeon Heliport

It would appear that this heliport is associated with a nearby hospital to which it is connected by road.

N-208 Helipad

This is an athletic field with no helicopter markings "H": http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37.832436&lon=124.714206&z=19&m=b&search=N-208%20Helipad and https://www.google.com/maps/@37.830828,124.7144291,250a,35y,39.46t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en

"Okchuk-tong Heliport" which I just submitted looks like a better candidate as it is appropriately marked and appears to be a military installation. Check out: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=37.843934&lon=124.705631&z=19&m=b&search=Okchuk-tong%20Heliport; and https://www.google.com/maps/@37.8425274,124.7054176,207a,35y,39.47t/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en-US

Mokpo Airport

Airport is closed as a commercial airport, but remains open as a military airbase.

Picture of TIBC1

G-712 Airport?

Is this really an "airport" or a "highway strip," something you would see in North Korea?

Picture of TIBC1

G-806 Airport

I don't think this is still an airport. It looks more like a long drainage ditch. Check out: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.858170&lon=129.208789&z=17&m=b&search=G-806%20Airfield

C-719 Heliport

C-719 Heliport may be no more. Check out: http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=35.876224&lon=127.132427&z=19&m=b&search=C-719%20Heliport

The area where this heliport was located has been redeveloped into high rise apartment buildings.

G-500 Airfield?

I don't see an airfield, but I do see a heliport. Which is it? Please advise.
