Does anyone know of a list of airports that are outdated in default FSX?

Recommended Posts

I'm talking about missing runways, or just missing airports at all.

 

Does anyone have a list?

I would hazrd a guess as to all of them for varying reasons. not least to mag variation, additional work, incorrect location and so goes the list, did i forget teh missing ones, lots of backwater airfields dont exist in fsx.

I've seen very few that have any changes, but I typically avoid the largest airports.  My home field, F00, has been built up quite a bit and the runway extended.  I was able to edit that easily enough.  A lot of small airports simply aren't complete with all the buildings.

 

The biggest problem I've seen is that ICAO designators have changed on a considerable number of airports.

On Vancouver Island FSX has at least two airports that no longer exist in the real world. One of them didn't even exist when FS2002 was released!

Vienna airport has received a new terminal building in the last few years, which is not present in default FSX.

Well if we're starting that list.... Here's what I can add:

 

 

  • Chicago O'hare (KORD) is missing a new runway.
  • Cleveland, Ohio (KCLT) has a runway that was removed.
  • Washington DC (KIAD) is missing a runway
  • Boston (KBOS) is missing a new runway.
  • Minneapolis (KMSP) is missing a new runway.
  • Indianapolis (KIND) is missing a runway.
  • Seattle (KSEA) is missing a new runway.
  • Memphis (KMEM) is missing a new runway.
  • Tampa (KTPA) is missing a new runway.
  • Kansai (RJBB) is missing a new runway.
  • Toronto (CYYZ) is missing a new runway.
  • Frankfurt (EDDF) is missing a new runway.
  • Bristol (EGGD) is missing a new runway.
  • Albuquerque (KABQ) is missing a new runway.
  • Test range (KTNX) is missing a new runway.
  • Manchester (EGCC) is missing a new runway.
  • Vienna (LOWW) is missing a new runway.

That's all I can think of right now.

Chicago O'Hare has quite a few missing runways now.

I avoid O'Hare like the plague. My only no-fly zone in FSX. It's just too much of a headache. Having the wrong heading or frequency is one thing, but O'Hare is problem after problem. You have to be a cartographer just to figure out what runway to land at.

 

Oddly enough, no payware company has touched it either, perhaps due to the constant changes there and inevitable headache.

Vienna (LOWW) is missing a new runway.

A terminal is missing at Vienna - the two runways existing in FSX (11-29 and 16-34) have been there as long as I can remember, and I guess a lot longer. But there are indeed plans to build an additional runway (most likely designated 11R-29L), but that's currently only plans and a long time till they may even start building (if ever).

ZSPD, new runways and new terminal.

ZBAA, new runways and new terminal.

ZUUU, new runways and new terminal.

ZUCK, new runways and new terminal.

ZPPP, new airport built.

...

The list is very long.

A terminal is missing at Vienna

I understand, but I don't think terminals are that important as a missing runway or even worse, a missing airport.

I totally understand your point, Diego, it doesn't really matter, not even with the (possibly, don't recall) smaller default apron there. What I wanted to point out was simply the fact that your statement of LOWW missing a runway is not true, that basic layout has not been changed, and I doubt it will in the next few years.

Should have read your original post more careully, though. I could have avoided our misunderstanding by that :blush:
