Local Airport Updates

Recommended Posts

As it is with a lot of P3D airports, their afcads are way out of date. A lot of the time you can just download an updated one that someone has so generously created. Unfortunately my local airport isn't that lucky, granted it's had quite the renovation done to it in the last 10 years. 

 

Looking for someone who has the talent of creating and editing afcads who can update my local airport!

And now we should guess your home airport? 😉

I know that FSAerodata has been busy with a new product updating the afcads take a look here https://www.fsaerodata.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=136

But alas no progress since last year.

Unlikely to see the light of day because that service will close layer this year due to increased costs and insufficient revenue from declining sales.  Blame MS....

I have a look at it. I just saw,  there is a FS9 version, which I could modify maybe to have some nice buildings or I do it from scratch with generic buildings and common objects.

FS9 version is quite outdated from current layout, new terminal and taxiways compared to that one. 

Skyvector page with loads of info on the airport, really appreciate you checking it out. 

Google Maps has pretty good imagery of the terminal and its present gate layout.

 

Let me know if there's anything you need to assist if you do undertake this!

I opened the default file and underlayed it with google satellite pic. The layout of runways seems correct but the details are missing, like blastpath or overrun. Also taxiways need some corrections and the scenery looks pretty booring in p3d5. So I will work on that and it will certainly look better afterwards. Do you have ORBX Global and landclass? Just because of the sourroundings, like trainlines etc.

Hi @Boeing737Max

I just saw, there is an ORBX scenery for this airport, making it look closer to reality. You should have this in CRM. The terminal however is ugly. But the one I will build from generic buildings wont be that better i fear. 

I checked your link about airport information. There´s lot of information but not about parking numbering. Do you have information about the gates, how the are numbered?

Regards

Dan

Orbx did well on the east side of the field, however like you said the terminal and west side is still outdated. 

 

Here's the termianl map, simple gates, 1-5, 1 being on the southern most side and 5 being on the northern most.

There are nine total parking positions, each gate having two parking spots and an extra spot on the top left for charter flights.

Further south the FedEx hub got an upgrade as well, two "cargo" parking position 

 

Hope this helps!

Yes, that help a lot. I realized Google Maps are not actual. I got now Zoom Earth data. 

What are the charter aircraft which park on these 3 separate parkings north-west? Business Jets or touristic airliners?

I need Airline Names not types, if possible.

What is the background terrain? Is this desert with 

It is now pretty much advanced. No the lenghty fine tuning comes. PM me your mail address, I will send you a link to the actual state. I will certainly work more on this. Could add lighting and more detail. Also the only jetway needs to be done. Do you have GSX?
