Animated jetways at KSFO

Animated jetways can be set in motion by pilots arriving at terminals of airports in FlightGear that have had them added.

Jetways are the "tubes" that passengers use when entering or leaving aircraft docked to the passenger terminals.

There are at least 2 types of animated jetways in FlightGear.

Animated jetways type 1

Type 1 is described in Howto:Animated jetways.

Type 1 is more advanced than type 2. They can connect to your aircraft and also to AI or multiplayer aircraft, (almost) no matter where you stand and in which orientation, as long as you are near enough.

Known issues

The last 2 bugs (jetways.nas & jetways_edit.nas) are also fixed in the git version of FGData http://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fgdata/ci/dd3390b3afee955ba23dfd9334baf438bc7ae989/

Adding type 1 jetways to an airport

If you use them at your airport, try to find someone (Torsten D.) with commit rights to FGData or TerraSysnc's Airports/ folder and/or use them in your custom scenery.

Type 1 Jetways at KDEN

recommended:

  • Rename Models/Airport/Jetway/jetway-movable.xml to jetway-movable.xml.bak

alternative:

  • remove all <model> entries from Objects/w110n30/w105n39/KDEN_Concourse_C.xml

Type 1 Jetways at KLAS

recommended:

  • Rename Models/Airport/Jetway/jetway-movable.xml to jetway-movable.xml.bak

alternative:

  • remove all lines with OBJECT_SHARED Models/Airport/Jetway/jetway-movable.xml from Objects/w120n30/w116n36/1056643.stg

Type 1 Jetways at PANC

recommended:

  • Rename Models/Airport/Jetway/jetway-movable.xml to jetway-movable.xml.bak

alternative:

  • remove all lines with OBJECT_SHARED Models/Airport/Jetway/jetway-movable.xml from Objects/w150n60/w150n61/501192.stg

Type 1 Jetways at EGKK

  • create a folder Models/Airport/Jetway/backup and move jetway.xml, jetway-747-ba.xml, jetway-737-ba.xml, jetway-a320-ba.xml into that folder.

alternative:

  • remove all lines with OBJECT_SHARED Models/Airport/Jetway/... from Objects/w010n50/w001n51/2941771.stg

Type 1 Jetways at EHAM

That is a tough one! The static jetways are part of the .ac file of the terminals e.g. Schiphol_Gate_E.ac. If you really want animated jetways there, you have to edit those terminal buildings in a 3D software like blender or sketchup. EHAM_gate.xml and EHAM_gate_2.xml also need to be fixed but that is easy: you can download them here: http://media.lug-marl.de/flightgear/jetways/

Type 1 Jetways at EDDF

EDDF has no other jetways except for Type1-Jetways at Terminal A+. So just put EDDF.jetways.xml into the Airports/E/D/D/ folder

Animated jetways type 2

You can find type 2 at EDDH, EDDK, EDDG and some other airports, They exist in three versions for aircraft with one, two or three doors:

  • jetway-movable.xml
  • jetway-movable-2.xml
  • jetway-movable-3.xml

Known issues

  • You click one of them and all others also move
  • Your aircraft has to park exactly aligned on the yellow line with the front wheel on the mark.
  • They only fit when the terminal building in front of the aircraft, you can not use them when the terminal building is on the side of the aircraft.
  • Movement is not visible via multiplayer

Adding type 2 jetways to an airport

Place them as a shared object with the ufo and submit the locations to to http://scenemodels.flightgear.org/. See Placing 3D Objects with the UFO.

Adding type 2 jetways to an aircraft

Add the following to your aircraft-set.xml, see the A380 as an example:

<aircraft>
 <jetway-pos>
  <x-tra>-2</x-tra>
  <y-rot>2</y-rot>
  <z-rot>18</z-rot>
  <hood-rot>0</hood-rot>
 </jetway-pos>
 <jetway2-pos>
  <x-tra>2.5</x-tra>
  <y-rot>2.5</y-rot>
  <z-rot>45</z-rot>
  <hood-rot>0</hood-rot>
 </jetway2-pos>
 <jetway3-pos>
  <x-tra>4</x-tra>
  <y-rot>5</y-rot>
  <z-rot>47</z-rot>
  <hood-rot>3</hood-rot>
 </jetway3-pos>
</aircraft>
