Payware airport addons

Recommended Posts

Can anyone let me know if developers of payware airport addons need to pay for a license to create a particular airport ?

Considering...how the FAA is seeking additional funding by trying to make GA flyers pay for their (ATC) service.. (They have been lobbying congress along with the airliners), I wouldn't be surprised if that becomes the case in the future.But as of now, No.Manny

It's just something that came up on the RSC racing forums regarding developers having to pay for licences to recreate official tracks.The fact that payware airport addons get released here, there, and everywhere made me wonder whether the same applied to airports.Evidently not.

ChrisThe analogy doesn't really apply. NASCAR tracks and the like are private real estate as opposed to airports that are public and part of the transportation system.This raises an interesting question. Could i.e. North West, who uses hubs, buy their own real estate, put down a runway, and exclude all other traffic there by eliminating delays?
