Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The "radius" parameter is used internally by FlightGear's AI Traffic system to determine whether an AI aircraft will fit at a parking location. The rule is that aircraft will prefer to park at the smallest possible parkings, but only at those that have a radius value (in metres) that is slightly larger than the radius value of the aircraft itself. Below is the official list of aircraft radii used by FlightGear's AI system:

Correct radii for future use

Please do not use these as of yet, we will likely convert all of the radii at once.

  • Aircraft have often different wingspan than length. Both are important measurements to take into consideration when assigning parking spots. Most important seems to be wingspan, as that's where "hits" are most noticeable.
