EuroGA Airports Database Telegram bot

We have a telegram bot now, so please test it

@euroga-airports (for locating it in the telegram app) (for going to it from a browser)

Any input, please post it here. Some enhancements are on the list already and will be done soon.

Notams seem not to work at all for ELLX, EDDR and LFPB, but work for EBSP, LFJL and LFGW. Maybe they fail above a certain size?

The bot seems to not have published its possible commands in machine-readable format to BotFather, thus not enabling autocompletion and menu-driven choice of commands. Run “/setcommands” to BothFather to do that.

I have just done that – hopefully correctly

You can also type Help or ?

ELLX should work because it runs on the base site. We will look at that.

Yes, command auto-completion works now. The description of the “/rep” command differs from the one in “/help”. It just says “get EuroGA airport database reports”, suggesting something like “/rep ELLX” would give the ones for ELLX, which is not the case. The description in the help text (“airports within 50nm of current location”) seems closer to the actual behaviour. (A small nitpick: I can’t help but read “nm” as “nanometer”… maybe “nmi”?)


Nice work!

Excellent, thanks!
There is some strange behaviour with AIP, though:
- some existing airports aren’t shown (e.g. LSZL Locarno is missing, whereas LSZG Grenchen is present)
- entering three letters in an AIP command sometimes produces a wildcard output (e.g. aip EET returns links for EETN and EETU), and sometimes produces nothing (e.g. aip LSZ). Two letters don’t seem to produce anything. Four letters can also produce a wildcard output in Czechia, which has 6-letter sub-ICAO identifiers (e.g. aip LKBU returns LKBU and LKBUDK).

Thx a lot! Tried it with LFRQ and it’s working fine.
