Manuel Carlos Piar Guayana International Airport (IATA: PZO, ICAO: SVPR) (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional de Guayana "Manuel Carlos Piar"), is an airport in the city of Ciudad Guayana, Venezuela. Ciudad Guayana is divided into two main population centres, San Félix and Puerto Ordaz, where the airport is located and hence its IATA code of PZO. The city sits at the confluence of the Orinoco and Caroni Rivers, and is the main access point for the natural attractions in south-east Venezuela, mainly Canaima National Park and Gran Sabana.
The airport is named after Manuel Piar, victorious general at the Battle of San Félix in the Venezuelan War of Independence.

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.
