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

Airports under construction

Preface

Found a beacon in the middle of the runway in LMML or some other faults?

First you have to know that 90 % of the airports have "bad layouts" at the moment and at some places even maps are not updated (have a look here i.e.). Most of the airports need updates. This is a lot of work when you think about the 20’000 airports in the database. When you read the tutorials how to build airports you can do it yourself and submit your work. Or someone of the contributors here will once start to work on your "wish" - but please be patient and do not send any messages/mails to contributors. You can go to the forum (Scenery Enhancement) to discuss some issues.

Airports under construction

In this article you find a list of all airports which currently are under construction. You can also see if an airport is "finished" and if the data is already submited to the current database of the mapserver (apt.dat).

Avaiability of new/changed airports needs some time

In FlightGear there is a common workflow to edit airports. First expierenced contributors have to change the airport data with "taxidraw". Then they submit the new data to the mapserver (main scenery data files/airport data file apt.dat). Meantime other contributors can also submit some scenery to the custom scenery database (for downloading via TerraSync). But for runways, taxiways, beacons, frequencies the apt.dat-File needs an update anyway and maybe also the base scenery around the airport needs an update. Please be patient with updates. It needs more time than you expected.

Submit your work plans and schedule your activities

Please feel free to edit this page and submit your "pending airport" directly.

Submit your wishes

If you wish to add an airport or think this or another airport needs a change you have to post in the forum (scenery enhancement). But first search the forum with the ICAO code of the airport and be sure that you have read all the posts about this airport. And please submit also some links to images and information you have about/from this airport.
