Of stuff not in the pipeline?

 

LTBA or UUDD because they are the last major hubs in the world not covered with Payware Quality

Elmira/Corning Regional Airport (KELM.)

 

Reason being is because I live very close here and they just lengthened the runway to 8,001 feet. It's centrally located between NYC, Buffalo (FlyTampa baby!), Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia (SunSkyJet.)

 

Also, US Airways and Delta Connection flies Dash 8's, CRJ-200's, -700's, and -900's and an occasional E-170 into KELM. Ameriflight flies Metroliners and Allegiant flies MD-83's into KELM. It is also a hotspot for a biz jet company which operates in and out of KELM. Corning, Inc. flies a Falcon 50 and there are couple Gulfstreams based here.

 

On a side note, when NASCAR has the Watkins Glen race, most of the drivers and teams fly their aircraft to KELM including 737-400s and 737-800s, 727-200s, Citation X, Saab 2000s and several E-145s.

TE68|'nuggs' Flying M|Pottsboro|Texas|United States||0202|APX22200.bgl|33.7441169|-96.6598834|

 

There it sits at the very top of the Airport list in FSX, inviting any or all to come enjoy a flight. And I bet there in no one who has enjoyed a visit to 'nuggs', other than myself...

 

When will some payware producer, or even a freeware person, come around and show a little love for 'nuggs' Flying M?

LOL! Good one!

 

I however would like to see Yellowknife - Buffalo Airways HQ. Overlooked area in FSX, I like flying old vintage aircraft and I love the Ice Pilots NWT show.

Greater Cincinnati International Airport ( KCVG ).I live in Cincinnati, this airport is actually across the river in Northern Kentucky.

Lunken Airport ( KLUK ), which is right in Cincinnati. The home of Procter and Gamble, they , along with several other companies have jets here. There is a bit of history associated with the airport.

The first Government approved flight school in the United States. That was Embry Riddle , later to locate in Florida.

In the 1920's Aeronca built airplanes there until 1940.

The early days of American Airlines  ( 1921 ) started flying out of Lunken.

Hanger # 6 is rumered to have come from the Historic  McCook Field in Dayton, Ohio.

    This would be a perfect airport for Orbx.

Given Sydney and Auckland are finally being made I would love to see Perth and Darwin.

Further afield I'd like some African airports such as Cairo and Johannesburg and Mombasa.

An FTX region of NWT would be nice.

Or northern Alberta but just cause I live there... Then they could do CYQU

 

Realistically off the top of my head I would have 3 or 4...

 

KTEB- Teterboro NY

FAJS- Johannesburg

ZMUB- Ulan Bator Mongolia

LLET- Eilat Israel. One of the most beautiful approaches with a nice short runway that has the odd 67 and daily 57s. Must include the city too. There was a free fs9 version but I don't remember if it works in FSX there must be a reason I'm not using it.

 

I'm sure there are others I'll think of but there will always be more people want. I'd like a nice Asian hub. Beijing needs to be done.

OK 5... Paris Le Bourget! I need my bizjet hubs.....

 

OK now I'm really done

I'd really enjoy some Austrian airfields like maybe Zell am See (LOWZ) - a nice little airfield with great scenery surrounding it, or Zeltweg (LOXZ), the home base of the Austrian Airforce, which would most likely be my "home base" if there were better scenery for Austria available.

KCVG has been done by ImagineSim. Pretty good version too.

 

I would go for KEWR--One of the overlooked hubs of the New York area.

i think Asia lacks a few good ones. Imaginesim WSSS and Hong Kong are rubbish.

 

Also WMKK is a major hub.

EKCH. Such a beautiful airport and one of the biggest in Europe, can't believe it doesn't have a good FSX rendition of it. And I know you said one, but if I couldn't have EKCH, I'd pick EPWA

KDAL - Dallas Love Field - Because this is my home port for Southwest Virtual and I would love a 100% accurate airfield of home.   The one from BluePrint Simulations does not count as it cannot be installed on a 64-bit machine, which I found out AFTER I bought it and it gave me the finger trying to install it.    We need a more up to date version of it with the correct buildings modeled and HD textures.  Pretty please, with sugar on top?

A new version of Stockholm-Arlanda ESSA.  The one made by Aerosoft is good but also very old!   It's also getting outdated :)

 

Also, Kastrup airport (Copenhagen EKCH) is one of the few major airports in Europe that has not been touched by a payware dev!  (Well there is one, but it isn't up to payware standards!)
