It would be useful to be able to tell what timezone an airport is in just by looking at the infobox. Gordon P. Hemsley 01:43, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

I think I'd asked about this before. It would be a good idea. CambridgeBayWeather (talk) 14:50, 29 August 2013 (UTC)
Good thinking I support the idea. We should copy the parameters from {{Infobox settlement}}. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:16, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Image Protocol[edit]

Is there an agreed protocol to use for the image and image2 variables? Should one be a photo of the terminal and the other should be a aerial view of the runway? Or is it more free form? I have some photos of general aviation airports and wanted to know where I should put them within the template. -Ichabod (talk)

Past tense for closed airports[edit]

When a closing date is given, this template should use the past tense. Please replace:

! colspan=2 {{!}} Serves


! colspan=2 {{!}} Serve{{#if: {{{closed|}}} | d | s }}

Still Open Airport
IATA: noneICAO: none
Serves London
Now Closed Airport
IATA: noneICAO: none
Serves London
Closed January 2, 1985 (1985-01-02)
@Mxn: I think this change will usually be good, but I see that the "closed" parameter says it can be used to describe a temporary closure. In that case "Serves" may still be appropriate - "Airport X serves London, but is temporarily closed for repairs". What do you think? -- John of Reading (talk) 15:12, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Not done: please make your requested changes to the template's sandbox first; see WP:TESTCASES. If it is just closed for repairs, then the airport is still open to the repairers and therefor is not closed. I would think in such cases the "closed" parameter would not be set although a note may be added to the article saying it is currently "closed to the public due to repairs" or some such. Either way, this should be thrown in the sandbox with a full set of testcases to see how it would play out in various instances. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 15:24, 26 March 2014 (UTC)
Ah, I didn't notice that it should be used for temporary repairs. Thanks, I'll consider implementing a more explicit way to indicate permanent closure on the sandbox. – Minh Nguyễn (talk, contribs) 19:40, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 8 November 2014[edit]

Please copy from the current sandbox[1]. I adjusted the {{location map}} template call to invoke the {{{default_width}}} parameter instead of absolute {{{width}}}. This allows automatic scaling of the map for narrow countries. Paul_012 (talk) 04:44, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

done. Frietjes (talk) 13:35, 8 November 2014 (UTC)

Template-protected edit request on 30 November 2014[edit]

Hey @Frietjes: and all others:
Template:Infobox airport/sandbox seems to be quite ready for prime time, see Template:Infobox airport/testcases. I fixed the remaining problems regarding the Owner/Operator variables and the column widths. What remains are some minor style differences. The more compact Runways and Helipads tables are even an improvement. The all-white captions just as well. All further optimizations should be done in incrementally followups IMHO. So I'd propose to launch the new template now.

  • Hey, what's up? Some feedback would be really nice... --PanchoS (talk) 14:20, 5 December 2014 (UTC)
    • now updated. I left the old version temporarily in the sandbox for comparison if there are problems. Frietjes (talk) 21:24, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Heliport code fix[edit]

In the code within the Heliport section

| n8 = {{{h8-number|}}} | l8-m = {{{h8-length-m|}}} | l8-f = {{{h8-length-f|}}} | s8 = {{{h8-surface|}}}
| n9 = {{{h5-number|}}} | l9-m = {{{h5-length-m|}}} | l9-f = {{{h5-length-f|}}} | s9 = {{{h5-surface|}}}
| n10 = {{{h10-number|}}} | l10-m = {{{h10-length-m|}}} | l10-f = {{{h10-length-f|}}} | s10 = {{{h10-surface|}}}

Can someone please change the "n9" to

| n9 = {{{h9-number|}}} | l9-m = {{{h9-length-m|}}} | l9-f = {{{h9-length-f|}}} | s9 = {{{h9-surface|}}}

Thanks. Gavbadger (talk) 22:47, 10 January 2015 (UTC)
