Frankfurt am Main Airport
|Type||Public + Cargo|
|City||Frankfurt am Main|
The Frankfurt International Airport, also known as Flughafen Frankfurt am Main or Rhein-Main-Flughafen, is in Europe the third larges airport for passengers (after London and Paris) - and the largest for cargo. It is located 12 km (7.5mi) southwest of downtown Frankfurt am Main. This airport-model is complete with respect to the Terminals. However, as there are constant changes going on in reality (e.g. a "Terminal 3" will be coming soon) work is never really finished. In addition to the airport the scenery also contains a fair amount of skyscrapers of Frankfurt and some other details.
The version available through TerraSync is reasonably up-to date, while the version in the GIT repo contains some future changes (new runway, buildings under construction). In addition to that there is a new custom scenery with many details for the area around the airport. In General:
- starting with FGFS 3.0. (and Scenery 2.12) the new runways and new ILS-frequencies are included and/or uploaded by TerraSync
- prior to that you may use the AddOn-Scenery-Package from http://www.emmerich-j.de/EDDF/EDDF-ELLX-new.zip (See the README inside the package)
EDDF has 4 runways. Three runways are positioned approximately parallel east-west, and the forth is north-south.
These runways are used only for landings of medium size aircraft - no starts are allowed.
Instrument Landing System is available for runway 07L, tune your NAV radio to 111.75 with a heading of 069.614.
Instrument Landing System is available for runway 25R, tune your NAV radio to 111.35 with a heading of 249.568.
Instrument Landing System is available for runway 07C, tune your NAV radio to 110.55 with a heading of 069.614.
Instrument Landing System is available for runway 25C, tune your NAV radio to 111.55 with a heading of 249.568 (prior to FGFS 3.0 the frequency was 109.50).
Instrument Landing System is available for runway 07R, tune your NAV radio to 110.95 with a heading of 069.619.
Instrument Landing System is available for runway 25L, tune your NAV radio to 111.15 with a heading of 249.571 (prior to FGFS 3.0 the frequency was 110.70).
Runway 18 does not have an Instrument Landing System as it is used only for departures in real life. There is NO runway 36 as that direction leads towards the Taunus mountains that would be in the way at takeoff.
