Nominations for next freeware airport?

Recommended Posts

I figured with the release of Shez's fantastic KDCA airport, in the forum section there's a few posts on nominations for his next airport. I thought I'd start the nominations here, not just for Shez but for any freeware airport designer out there.Here's my list of what I'd like to see.1. Charlotte KCLT U.S. Air hub2. Miami KMIA American Airlines hub3. Nashville KBNA4. New Orleans KMSY5. Anchorage PANC FEDEX cargo hub, would be great to see6. Edmonton CYEG7. Vancouver CYVR8. Albuquerque KABQ9. Birmingham, AL10. Pittsburgh KPITI know these lists come out every once and awhile, just thought I'd start a new thread to inspire those incredibly creative freeware airport designers out there.Lobaeux

I vote for KSEA. :)The default one is OK, as default airports go, but it is lacking.

I guess I'll be the odd duck voting for KPDX! I'll gladly do the RAFCAD to match!

Speaking as a proud (but not rude!) New Yorker, I implore someone or some group of people to take on the very large task of New York's John F. Kennedy International. The default airport included in FS2002 is, well to be frank, crap... Airport 2002 Vol I is MUCH better than the default, but let's face it. It was designed for FS98... Now, I know JFK has lost some its glory... especially during the two decades following deregulation... but it's still a great airport. I believe I speak on be half of many flight-simmers when I say that JFK deserves a good model in Fs2002...Shez, if you're reading this... I believe this would certainly pave the way to a great Northeast trilogy of airports for FS2002 *Hint, hint*. Of course, we all know that JFK is a very complex, non-uniform, large airport. Still, seeing Active Sky, the Dash 8, and numerous other amazing FREEWARE projects, I think it is do-able.ps Thanks to Shez, and all the other freeware scenery designers for brining so many destinations to life in FS2002!Sincerely,Phil Geddes

My vote goes to San Diego (KSAN). It's something like the 6th largest city in the United States, and is the busiest single runway airport in the US. It seems every other airport in California is covered except for San Diego. I hope you can change this... hehe :)

Some of these have been done:>3> KTPA Tampa Intl - great airport, especially from the US >Airways lounge which has a great view I did this one a while ago, but Chris Gilbert's version is EXCELLENT!!! And it includes the new airside E that's just opened.>4> KRSW Southwest Florida Intl - another great FL airport Once again, Chris Gilbert has done a wonderful job on this one.>5> KMDW Chicago/Midway - nice to fly to Chicago and not go >to O'Hare I did this one myself, and will be updating it over the Christmas holidays.>10>PHOG Kahulaei Intl- something like that Bill Melichar did a great renditionof this one as well. All these can be found here at AVSIM, or other fine FS sites.Rob DieboldScenery guy...:-beerchug

Shez did an awesome job on DCA! I can even see the park where you can watch the planes fly over your head on short final for rwy 19 in real life. I can even see the bike trail that runs along the park and down the GW Parkway!Amazing stuff! Now as suggested above, JFK sure could use a good plastic surgeon. ;-)

KABQ is my vote. The southwest has largely been neglected by developers (freeware and payware). KABQ is a great place to connect to Denver, SLC, Phx, Dallas, and all kinds of cool moutain airports in CO. KABQ is also a very nice airport with a very cool terminal and a huge air force base. If not what about phoenix?BTW:Amazing job on KDCA. I have anxiously been waiting for someone to do that airport. With simflyers KIAD and now Shez's KDCA I couldn't be happier. His rendition of KDCA is better than many payware airports out there. Keep it up!Brewmaster

JFK is being worked on by someone at Project AI. I second KSAN, but what about KORD? Wilco messed that one up colossally and the default one is an equal eyesore and bad on the frames. We could really use a Shez-style ORD. :DMisha

I would like to vote for the well over looked, General Mitchell International (MKE) in Milwaukee, WI. First created back in 1920 with only northwest serving the single route from MKE to MSP. It now stands today with over 220 daily flights and moves millions of passengers each year. Home to a well known airline, Midwest Express (Midwest as of 1/3/03) and its solely owned commuter, Skyway (Midwest Connect as of 1/03/03) which is a fast growing hidden secret in the US airline market. Skyway is not advertised, publicly, it's just mentioned in Midwest Express printed materials. That's why I would like to see an FS2002 version of General Mitchell International (MKE). Also it's the largest airport in wisconsin and is considered by many as a sister airport to O'Hare.

I'd just like to second this choice (KMKE). I'd be great to see this one in high detail.
