Assigning arrival gate

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 

Do you try to let the ATC direct to to a particular gate on arrival on the planning stage?

On arrival at KDEN I asked ATC to taxi to gate B27 (which I have Autogate moving jetway and digital guiding system within the scenery) and it did, as the video shows

But what if I want to set a couple to gates that it will taxi me to any one of them when I plan the flight, it is possible?

Ideally it should choose a gate which has been tagged in the Gate list with your airline code, and which is of sufficient size for your aircraft type.

And also either select one which is already free, or, better, make it free and keep it so (by automatically deleting any AI attempting to spawn or park there). Dave?

If you set up the gate for your airline, and then request taxi to the gate, it will randomly select one of  the gates for your airline to taxi you to. 

It does not control AI Traffic and so does not check that the gate is empty or "delete" any AI Traffic that might be at the gate.  That level of interaction is on the longer term roadmap.

This "setting up the gate for my airline" is actually already done in many of the add-on airports, certainly all of the better ones. So are you getting the airline codes for the gates from the MakeRunways Gates file?

Or do I have to go through the process of editing them all, for each airport I use, somewhere in P2A? If so, could I put in a request, please, for (also?) using the very useful assignments in the Gate definitions?

If you import the airport in TaxiMnt and the scenery (MakeRunways for P3D/FSX) has the gate assignments, they are picked up.  Or you can assign gates or change gate assignments in Taxi Mnt.

Super! Thanks Dave!
