Airports aren't allowed on my list if I haven't landed there.

Why not make this field a 4-character field, so that you can designate the previous use of a code with a suitable suffix (e.g. BKKX, HKGX, etc)...

For non-aviation enthusiasts, 4 letter codes are difficult to comprehend.

...ah, no, I didn't mean the ICAO codes, they would indeed be baffling, even to some of us enthusiasts! No, I just meant where you might have BKK twice, for example, you make the current one BKK, and the previous airport BKKX. I note that this is what www.flightmemory.com do, so that when you enter historical data you can determine which was the correct airport at the time.

The idea of the databasoid is that a user can enter a FAMILIAR trigraph; which of course is the IATA code
