No airport static aircraft at all

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am pretty new to simming and cant figure out where my airport static aircraft have gone. I took off from LFPG Paris and landed at EGKK Gatwick and there were not even default static aircraft at either airport. I have my FSX setting (TRAFFIC) set to (Aviation traffic) Airline traffic density (%) 61, General aviation traffic density (%) 61 and Airport vehicle density: Medium.  I am sure I must be doing something wrong but dont know what. Just wanted to get some static aircraft on airports to enhance my airport experience. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Neil Bishop

Purely static aircraft, as in aircraft that never move, just there to take up space, would have to be made a part of the airport.  You can use Airport Design Editor to place generic B737's and MD-83's as well as general aviation models.  To have AI aircraft, the airport must have adequate parking for them and there must be flight plans that use that airport as their departure/destination point.  Depending upon how much traffic is written to that airport, it might be a simple thing of moving your airline density slider up to 90% or even 100%.

Keep in mind, also the time of day and season might affect the amount of AI aircraft at any given airport.

I can't find it now, but I am pretty sure there is a commercial product that was created just for this purpose.... my old memory just won't let me drag it to the surface.
