"Airport Courtesy Cars" is a new Google Play/Apple iPhone app that lists over 1100 airports nationwide that have crew/courtesy cars. Make sure you search for it in the phone store, as searching from a tablet won't work. You can load it on an iPad by changing the search function in the app store from iPad apps to iPhone apps.You can dial the listing directly from the app to see if a car is available. If you have a listing that I missed, or a correction, you can email me via the app, or to airportcars101(at)gmail.com. Thanks for looking. Glenn

Hi Glenn,

Just wondering why the app needs access to identity, calendar, contacts photos & files, the camera and call information. I understand the need for location information to improve search response.

Joel, I appreciate the question and when I discovered the app asked for those permissions I threw a fit at the app host service. They explained most apps are like this and they could not change the settings Only one of those permissions are used on my app. The only one is location services if you want to show your location on the Google map, however I do not see that, and you can turn that off if you want. Another example listed is the access to photos, that would be if my app allowed you to post photos, which again it does not. I hope this explains things. I also have their formal response to my complaint that I would be happy to share. Glenn

Joel, what device are you using? It didn't request anything but location services on my iPad.

If I can answer for Joel, I would bet he has an Android device, that is the standard permissions for most of their apps, Apple doesn't do that. My iPhone only asked for permission to use location, like your iPad did. Glenn

Glenn,
Requested permissions for Android apps can be controlled by the developer using the manifest.permissions object.see http://developer.android.com/reference/android/Manifest.permission.html
Your application developers can correct the parameters for this object, rebuild the application and only request location services.

Wanted to update the list with the following, the Airport Courtesy Car app as of this date has over 1300 listings nationwide with over 5000 pilots that have downloaded the app. It continues to be covered by major publications. Since AvWeb covered it and AOPA Pilot magazine in the February issue, it has most recently been favored by G.A. News. Also I can now upload pictures of your favorite crew cars to the state listings, so email those pictures to me at airportcars101(at)gmail.com. And keep those entries coming!

Now approaching 6000 pilots using the app with over 1350 listings, and a recent review on the EAA website. And in a feeble attempt to recoup my costs, I am now offering very reasonably priced ad's for aviation related businesses as I keep my word to keep this app free for pilots. If you or someone you know may be interested, please email me at airportcars101(at)gmail.com for rates. And please tell your FBO where you found them. Thank you. Glenn

I still get a lot of questions on how to download the Airport Courtesy Cars app on an iPad. So here are some simple instructions on how to do so. The app is approaching 1400 car listings with over 6,400 pilots that have downloaded the app. Glenn

Go to the app store on your iPad,
Click the search box and search for Airport Courtesy Cars,
The search will not show any results, however when the search is complete a bar of menus will appear along the top of the page,
The very first one on the left says "Ipad only",
Click it to show a drop down menu,
Choose "iPhone only" and Airport Courtesy Cars" will be displayed, and you can download the app.

I can now insert photos of your courtesy cars into the app listings. Feel free to email me your photos, and please be sure to indicate in the title of the email the airport ID and/or city location, and if there is more than one FBO, which one the car is located at. The app has broken 1400 locations nationwide. Thanks, Glenn Email to airportcars101(at)gmail.com

Thank you iPhone users for waiting out the IOS 9 upgrade while the Airport Courtesy Car app was down. The app is back up for all users and the layout and look of the app has been upgraded also. The listings continue to grow, currently at over 1,520. Please continue to send in listings I have missed or corrections that need to be made and I will get right on them. And if you use and like the app, please consider a small donation to help with expenses, even the tip that you leave on the lunch counter is appreciated. There are PayPal links on the app, and my mailing address is also listed within the app. Glenn
PS: Also wanted to mention the app now has a search function that many people asked for.

We just completed a major upgrade to Airport Courtesy Cars App, which now makes the app available on ALL devices, including the web. Please upgrade your app to the latest version. If your phone does not support the app, then go to our new website, www.airportcourtesycars.com The site is mobile friendly and you can place its icon to your phone or tablet screen. Both versions show Google maps for each state, the app version still shows the entire US map which some people prefer. The site currently lists over 1560 cars. Thanks for your input and contact us with any questions, new listings, or corrections to airportcars101(at)gmail.com And please check out our advertisers and FBO’s who offer you fuel discounts. The app remains free.

Hi Glenn

Great idea. Being techno challenged I can't seem to find the google map. How can I download it to my iPhone? I've gone to web site but just States are listed and no map. Thanks again for doing this.

The 2 versions are slightly different regarding the maps. First, if you are asking how to download the app to your iPhone, simply go to the app store on your phone and search for "Airport Courtesy Cars". On the phone app, there are 2 different maps. On the main app page, the map page will take you to a Google map of the entire US. Then, on both the app version and the web version, when you go to a specific state, the first verbiage you see under the state name is "Tap/Click Here for Map", that will take you to a Google map of that state only. Those maps are a little "glitchy", expand the map with 2 fingers and hold it for a couple seconds, or the map will spring back. I am trying to figure out how to format those maps the same as the US map (if anyone knows, please fill me in!) Hope this helps! Glenn
