Why isn't KXLL in FSX airport listing?

Recommended Posts

An old, established airport near my home is not listed in the FSX airport list.  It's Queen City Airport (KXLL) in Allentown, Pa.  I fly out of KABE as my default airport...sometimes KPHL (Philadelphia) which is close to us.  However, Queen City is a rather heavily used little airport that is quite established.  Does FSX selectively leave out certain kinds of airports, or did they just miss this one?

ps.  If any scenery developer has a realistic rendition of KXLL or is working on one, I would appreciate knowing about it.  Thanks.

The identifier was changed to KXLL after FSX was released.

Yep.  The time I flew in (fuel run) the designation was already changed.  But what I did was to Google "FSX KXLL" and the first post indicated the ICAO had been changed. I then brought up the Airport Wikipedia site, and the info was right there.

Best wishes.

Absolutely, though in this case (presumably, based on how he wrote his post) the OP didn't have the original ICAO or know that it had been changed - he thought that the airport didn't exist in FSX.

That said, AIRNAV is certainly a terrific resource, one that I've used for many years.

I agree, use AIRNAV for all my US flights, it's an invaluable resource.
