Gate naming

Recommended Posts

Bear with me, still a very inexperienced user of this fantastic software.

It's very common in real world airport operations for pilots, upon clearing the runway after touchdown, to request taxi to a specific base operators or agency's ramp. For example, at my "home" airport in the sim, there are a FedEx, Border Patrol, and Million Air ramps.

I was trying to use the gate facility in Taxi Mnt to manage this but it appears the names were too complex. If I use gates "FX", "B" and "M" (for example), taxi clearances are given. If I labeled the gates "FedEx", etc. then no clearances were given.

Is there a way to accomplish using the more complex name?

If not, would this be considered a feature request to include in gates/Taxi Mnt a more general ramp name?

Let me know what you think.

I am super enjoying the ATC work with this software!

I'll add it to the list of possible enhancments to handle names instead of just Letters and Numbers.  This will be a significant coding effort.
