maximum airport name length is 24

Recommended Posts

This might just be a wishlist item, but I have found times where it would be nice to get the full name of an airport added to the database. Is it possible to extend the field length so that airport names >24 characters can be added? You can enter more then 24 characters on the dialogue window, but after adding the airport, the name gets cropped to 24.

24 is enough. It isn't used but in the informative displays inside the editor, and making them longer makes these less readable, so you can add some abbriviations without any risk. Fixed length characters are so much faster in access than variable ones, making all of them varible would make the 3 hours process a 3 weeks one easily.
