GCR Inc. (GCR), a New Orleans-based technology and professional services firm, announced that it has launched a new version of the popular 5010 site along with a new domain: AirportIQ5010.com.
For more than 20 years, GCR’s AirportIQ 5010 site has displayed the most current airport information provided by the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) Aeronautical Data Team (ADT). This information describes the physical and operational characteristics of all airports (public and private) and is critical to airport safety. GCR coordinates the Airport Data and Information Program for the FAA and publishes the data on the 5010 site, which is structured in accordance with the FAA’s Airport Master Record (5010-1 and 5010-2) forms. The data is then used in handbooks and charts for pilot use.
The site allows users to view and print 5010-1 & 5010-2 forms for every facility in the ADT database, generate advanced multi conditional searches (NPIAS Service Level, NPIAS Hub Type, Min/Max Runway Lengths, Airport Towered, etc.), and export Airport Master Record data to Excel. The newest release implements MicroServices Architecture, which simplifies and improves communication with the backend database. It also features a modernized responsive layout and an improved user experience.
“The advanced search capability allows our aviation clients to gain insight into airport data they can’t access anywhere else,” said Tim Walsh, Divisional CEO of Critical Infrastructure at GCR. “We offer this service for free, but we know it’s valuable to the industry, so it’s important that we invest in making it easier to navigate.”
The new AirportIQ 5010 site also allows the user to explore GCR’s AirportIQ software suite, which offers solutions for every aspect of airport management, scalable for airports of every size – From revenue management to security and credentialing, AirportIQ’s broad range of products work together to make an airport more efficient, profitable, and secure.
