CURRENT NOTE: the downloads are currently not available. We will correct this very soon.

Sometimes you might need some basic country or airport data for your application or a brief overview. A good place to start are, the Google APIs and For most stuff exists a myriad of free sources. So paying 100 bucks for some airport data is usually a waste of money unless they provide some unique extra data. Here we offer some parts of our data for free to download. We plan to add more in the future.
