New and Changed Airports

Post by UAL008 Kevin Finch » September 11th, 2019, 2:39 pm

FS9, FSX and P3D are notorious for having outdated scenery databases (I'm looking at you, O'Hare!). That means you might fly to an airport that has added or closed runways, rendering your charts and FMC useless. And, new airports open and they are not in the sim when you get there.

XPlane may be more current but I don't know because I don't use it.

Let's use this thread to advise one another about changed airports and what we do to rectify the situation. Please use my next post as an example of how these updates can appear.

To keep things simple, let's try to keep each response about one airport - don't mix six airports in one post. And, if you have another solution over and above what has been posted, make it a reply to that response.

LTBA closed; LTFM new Istanbul airport

Istanbul's LTBA Ataturk has all but ceased operation; only GA, cargo and VIP flights are using it now and it will completely shut down in 2020. The new Istanbul airport is LTFM.

Turkish Virtual Airlines (TVA) has freeware scenery available for FSX, P3D v4.3 and XP10/11 at https://turkishvirtual.com/turkishvirtu ... cenery.asp.

VTBS not in default P3D scenery

Thanks to UAL426 John Bullock for bringing this to my attention... The Star Alliance Tour spreadsheet has been updated to reflect the changes in Bangkok; this also affects the Southeast Asia tour.

Try this 2014 AFCAD from AVSIM: https://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?C ... LID=182290

FS9 users could look at https://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?C ... LID=147393

New Beijing Airport... Beijing Daxing International Airport (ZBAD) is 65 kilometres (40 mi) south of Beijing Capital International Airport (ZBAA). It will be a hub for SkyTeam alliance airlines and some Oneworld members, while Star Alliance members will stay at Beijing Capital International Airport (with the exception of LOT Polish Airlines, which will serve Daxing as well). Star Alliance member Air China will also operate some flights from ZBAD, according to Wikipedia.

P3D fliers can find an AFCAD at https://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=212240

Chinese developer BRIDGE has released a payware scenery of Beijing Daxing Airport (ZBAD) scenery for Prepar3D v3 and v4; it's available at Simmarket. There's a free map of the BRIDGE for the QW787 available at https://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=213480
