Recommended Posts

HelloThis might sound a bit silly but what parks at which gate?Gates heavy speaks for itself,but what about small medium and large.I have never really thought about this i just assume that for instance if i am using the Airbus 320,737-300-400-500 etc i would use a medium gate.But what about a small gate would that be used by something like a Fokker 70-100,ERJs 130140 etc or would they also be at a medium gate?Would small gates be for genuine small fry Cessna 172 182.I would be pleased if someone could tell me.cheers Andy

There are no gates for 172's. You park at GA parking.Smaller regional jets and turboprops would use a small gate, if not the ramp depending upon the airport.

737s and 320s even md83s park at Gate Small, as well as any smaller plane (GA included) that has a Gates entry in their cfg file. GA usually park at Ramps. Bob

The manuals for AFCAD and TTools have alot of great info on AI parking. Somewhere there is a list of what parks where, but I can't think of it right now. Parking is mostly based on wing span and parking codes. Bob
