your previous version of the airport database search was amazing. Why did you change it? I can't figure out how to search by state, or radius. It was my primary search tool for finding great new locations within a certain range from a local airport. I used it to search restaurants, and museums to support and encourage on airport business. I am heartbroken. Please teach an old dog a new trick.

Hello,

The old airport directory was built on a legacy technology that was no longer supported. It was becoming more and more difficult to properly support it and newer, modern browsers were starting to have issues that we could not resolve with the legacy platform. So a new airport directory was developed using modern architectures and allowing more powerful search technologies. The directory now uses "auto-complete" filtering to narrow down search terms based on what is being entered into the search box. This is the same type of search that most all modern platforms and websites now employ.

You can search by state (or city, airport name or identifier) by typing into the Search box. This box uses "auto-complete" filtering so the more you type, the narrower the results become. While simply typing in a term works for certain searches, the results are always better when you select the desired search term from the list that appears below where you are typing (see screenshot). So to search for all airports in a State, start typing the State name. In the example used for the screenshot, I started typing "Maryl" in order to find the State of Maryland. You can see that the State name is at the very bottom of the auto-complete search list in the Locations section.

Click on the State name in the list and then click the blue Search button. That will display a map and list of all airports in the State.

You can also Browse each State by clicking on the "Browse by State" link that is at the bottom right of the Search window.
