Landing and Departing on same runway

Recommended Posts

Hi all.Could this be a weather program related issue?I'm wondering if since installing SP1 for ASX (FSX), the program is causing "Air Traffic Control" to instruct aircraft to land and depart on the same runway towards each other. They should be landing and taking off in the same direction. Some do take off and land in the same direction and some take off and land opposite and towards you as you're lining up. Very scary indeed! Also, I've noticed that I don't require switching on the Anti Ice on my jets such as the 747-400 (FSX-Default).I use Gatwick (UK) a lot because of the excellent addon scenery by Gary Summons at UK2000 Scenery and I cant say I've encountered this kind of conflict with aircraft landing and departing towards each other on the same runway even with the AI aircraft before. It also happened to me this morning at Glasgow (UK). I had to "Go Around" because another aircraft was taking off towards me. I'm using "Real Time" so I haven't got a clue what this could be. Is anybody else having this kind of problem at airports or is it just me?Thanks.

Hi Temp,This one I did not miss. You asked if anyone else has this issue and not for specific help.This issue is because there are times when FS ATC does not get updated weather conditions. So sometimes you must refresh the ATC system in FSX, the same as in FS04, by moving the time on the clock, usually. The other part of this is that once AI planes have been given clearence to land, they will continue to land on that runway. So, at times we must be patient until those planes land and then we see the correct runway being used.Thanks,Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/banners/hifi-community-sigbanner.jpghttp://www.hifisim.com/

Jim, thanks for getting back to me. Could you just please tell me, when you say "Move The Time On The Clock", what do you mean exactly? Before I click the "Fly Now" button, I have already refreshed/reset to the present and current time in FSX. I then click on "Fly Now". Then, when FSX has loaded, I then receive the ASX weather download completed message across the top of the screen. That's when I check the ATTIS in ATC and (Sometimes) find that the aircraft are landing/departing either end towards each other on the same runway.Secondly, if I understand you correctly, that if this problem does occur, then we should wait a while before taxing to the runway. If that does solve thing, then I take it that ATTIS will amend itself also by giving the correct landing and departure runways?Thanks.
