JZRO, first airfield on Mars!
Posted On 2021-04-26
On April 19 2021, Ingenuity Helicopter flew for the first time on Mars, with flight number IGY-1 and call sign INGENUITY from Wright Brothers Airfield (JZRO) on Jezero Crater, the first official ICAO airfield on another planet!
To celebrate the event, JZRO has been added to my airports database, and thanks to openplanetary.org that have tiles for Leaflet for both Mars and the Moon, we even have a map for JZRO, same as for any other airport.
No ADS-B receiver on Mars yet, so this flight is not available in your favourite plane tracking sites, but the time may come!
