question about overlays

Recommended Posts

Hi,suppose I have two overlays for an airport:is it possible to have a common runway for both overlays?suppose there are two runways:when I have 25L for landings and 25Rfor TO in one overlay,can I then also have another overlay with TO's and landings on the same 25R?When I set up the same tower frequency with AFCAD for both overlay's for 25R,will two planes of a different overlay hold short for each-other,...?

>Hi, >suppose I have two overlays for an airport:is it possible to >have a common runway for both overlays?Yes. But they won't always contact the correct Ground facility after landing and they will all park at one or the other.suppose there are two >runways:when I have 25L for landings and 25Rfor TO in one >overlay,can I then also have another overlay with TO's and >landings on the same 25R?Yes, but see above.When I set up the same tower >frequency with AFCAD for both overlay's for 25R,will two >planes of a different overlay hold short for each-other,...? No, planes only avoid planes on other overlays right in front of them while on the ground. Any other situation and they'll run right through each other. Runways become very ugly at busy airports.Hope this helps,-- Tom GibsonCalifornia Classic Propliners: http://www.calclassic.com/Cal Classic Alco Page: http://www.calclassic.com/alco/Freeflight Design Shop: http://www.freeflightdesign.com/ San Diego Model RR Museum: http://www.sdmodelrailroadm.com/Drop by! ___x_x_(")_x_x___
