Incidents section?[edit]

Wikipedia pages on airports generally have a section on aviation incidents (e.g. crashes) that have occurred there. Unless Aspen is miraculously crash-free since its founding, it should have an incidents section as well. (I don't have the knowledge necessary to write such a section, but I'm sure that info would be available on the NTSB/FAA websites.) KBurchfiel (talk) 04:31, 2 June 2013 (UTC)

Northwest[edit]

I've removed Northwest, as they no longer fly to ASE. [1] [2] --75.72.161.204 00:32, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Good information, but unsourced[edit]

Thank you to the person who made a bunch of changes from 205.170.51.30 on 24 August. If you can add some inline citations, that would be most helpful. Also, consider registering an account. You clearly have the knowledge and desire to contribute.

Survey[edit]

Feel free to state your position on the renaming proposal by beginning a new line in this section with *'''Support''' or *'''Oppose''', then sign your comment with ~~~~. Since polling is not a substitute for discussion, please explain your reasons, taking into account Wikipedia's policy on article titles.
  • Oppose, as I don't think there's a place called "Aspen-Pitkin" or "Aspen-Pitkin County". 213.246.91.158 (talk) 08:33, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
    Irrelevant. That is the name of the airport, and therefore that is the name we should be using for the article. We do not get to make up spellings of items that have established names, like airports. Apteva (talk) 05:29, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose, per MOS and various other recent discussions on other hyphenen dash moves. PaleAqua (talk) 02:42, 17 November 2012 (UTC)
    MOS does not apply - it does not tell us how to spell airports, and as far as I have been able to determine, there are no proper nouns which include an endash, while there are many that use a hyphen. It would be wise to include the name of this airport as an example in the MOS, as suggested (spelled with a hyphen). Right now there are at least three examples in the endash section which are incorrectly spelled, using the wrong punctuation and/or the wrong capitalization (one is marked as under discussion). How is anyone to believe the MOS when it is riddled with errors? Apteva (talk) 05:29, 18 November 2012 (UTC)
Here is a proper name with en dash (Aspen–Pitkin County Airport). More books use slash than hyphen in styling this proper name, indicating a parallel relationship between the city and the county; that's the sort of relationship for which WP style uses the en dash.
