Leveraging a list of all airports around the world, the Charter system allows a pilot to create a flight schedule without the constraints of having to adhere to the company's route map. The only limitation is selecting an aircraft with the range to complete the flight, and that will fit in the airports.
If you find an airport missing from the list, please send in a ticket.
