Puntzi Mountain, Canada

Puntzi Mountain Airport, (ICAO: CYPU), is located 17 nautical miles (31 km; 20 mi) west of Puntzi Mountain, British Columbia, Canada. == History == The airport was established in 1951 to provide access to a base of the Pine Tree Line, part of the DEW system. It was the second-longest airstrip in British Columbia at the time and thirteen D8 bulldozers were on-site to keep the runway graded and, in winter, cleared of snow.

Usage

Technologies and Data Sources

This app is based on the Google Maps API, which on the one hand provides a powerful programming interface for web-based mapping applications, and on the other hand opens access to high quality satellite imagery for places all over the world.

The backend is realized in Python with the help of the excellent Flask micro framework.

The locations of airports have been imported from the public domain data provided by the aviation enthusiasts at OurAirports.com. The app displays randomly selected airports of the categories 'large_airport','medium_airport' and 'small_airport' for which runway coordinates are available.

Furthermore, the user interface incorporates icons from Font Awesome and fonts from Google Fonts.
