Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Skiddy, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Skiddy.

- Return to Citation

<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance that starts at Skiddy. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, private property - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Skiddy) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Skiddy. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Skiddy

<5>The IATA and ICAO are organizations that, amongst other functions, provide identifying codes for airports. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is an airline trade organization. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is an agency of the United Nations. Although the codes are similar, be careful not to confuse them.

- Return to Citation

<6>On an airport-by-airport basis, an NFDC report typically includes a description of airport operations, contacts, the runway(s), and radio, navigation & weather frequencies. The National Flight Data Center (NFDC) is operated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with the purpose of collecting, validating and disseminating information about airports.

- Return to Citation

<7>When we are planning a trip (for example, to Skiddy), we usually look for the obvious: the choice of airlines that fly into the airport, the number of flights, the connections we have to make, which car rentals are available, etc. We also look for sights and attractions that we might find between any given airport and our destination - we do love exploring. We're willing to fly into a more distant airport if we can get the services and amenities that we like. Even though our choice of airport might be inconvenient to others, it usually gives us a better trip.
