Evart Municipal Airport (ICAO: K9C8, FAA LID: 9C8) is a public airport located 1 mile (2 km) west of Evart in Osceola County, Michigan, United States. It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, in which it is categorized as a general aviation facility.The airport has generated controversy over the amount of tax money it receives as part of the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems despite having so few flights, based aircraft, hangars, or employees. However, when the airport first applied for funding, the Michigan Department of Transportation said that the City of Evart had justified the need for funds to build out facilities such as hangars to attract more flights.The airport is home to a variety of non-aviation events such as car meets, flea markets, and annual 4th of July fireworks shows.

This app shows satellite views of random airports. Its aim is to introduce you to the variety of airport structures embedded into the landscape.
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.
