Recommended Posts

Im parked in laguardia looking for my next destination before flying over the atlantic. im probably looking to head up into the maine area before crossing over, how can i tell if any of the airports on the "map" have fuel stations?

What "map" are you referring to? Within FSX or air charts like these?

 

If it's the latter, you're looking for any airfield within a circle that has little squares sticking out at 0, 90, 180 and 270 degrees. These ticks denote an airfield with services like fuel (see here in the sectional key). FSX does a good job providing services where they do and do not exist in real life. Any major airport will have fuel of course, this symbol is mainly for smaller airports (no runway greater than 8096ft)

 

If it's the former, I think the FSX map follows the same symbolism but I'm not sure I don't use it much to be honest.

You can select any airport in the free flight set-up window, then open the drop-down list of start positions to see if there is a fuel box.

 

Drew is right, the FSX map symbols are small, but they do do indicate where fuel is available as on the real charts.

I have a program called Destination Finder which is fantastic for that, it allows you to specify distance, parking, service, direction, runway length, in fact pretty much anything and find suitable airports. Even better it is free...... Try a search for it, pm me if you can't find it.....

the free demo of IF will filter all the airports with or without fuel parking from the entire set including your addon scenery...
