Runways and ILS
- ILS 08L: 108.55
- ILS 26R: 108.35
The sothern Runway is 3600m long with a width of 60m. In real life its mostly used by freighters due to its proximity to freight areas (Apron 2 and 4)
- ILS 08R: 111.90 (111.75 in FG older than Version 2.0.0)
- ILS 26L: 110.30
- Leipzig Ground - frequency 121.800

Connected by Terminal C and three taxiway bridges (W1, E7, E8) the airport layout combines the northern part with runway 08L/26L and Apron 3 (new cargo area since 2012) and the southern part with Apron 1 (Terminal B), runway 08R/26L, Apron 2, Apron 4 (DHL), Apron 5. Between both parts the
Access and connection
A highway and railway lines go straight between the two runways. Three bridges connect the terminal with the northern runway. The western bridge (taxiway W1) is used in both directions. The eastern bridges (taxiways E7 and E8) are used as one way taxiways. Due to safety improvements all bridges are equipped with special taxi lights. Due to changes in the TerraData the bridges had to be repositioned in 2012.
This building is the main Terminal for most commercial flights at EDDP. It is connected to Terminal C in the north and provides the passenger transfer to Apron 1 via 6 gateways. It also has a connection to the Luggage Terminal.
Scenery in TerraSync: In Flightgear the main Terminal is modelled very slim and efficiently. 6 unmovable gateways link to park positions 126, 128, 130, 132, 134 and 136. In 2012 it will be improved. Since September 2012 it has been equipped with a non-animated VDGS.
This building is under development. The old version will be replaced in October 2012.
This Apron in real life went into service with a new cargo hangar in 2012. In Flightgear it is still closed. The corresponding facilities are still under development.
Apron 4/5 (DHL)European DHL hub with 60 planes per night. The hub (warehouse, hangar and aprons) is modelled in the scenery. In 2012 its redesign for TerraSync started.
Surroundings and "Other"
Kursdorf - the village within the airport
Yes, that is weird. There is a village right in middle of the airport. So it's no surprise the number of inhabitants is shrinking each year. Once a thriving village with 537 inhabitants in 1950, they were down to 119 in 2006 (Wikipedia). It might be a little loud with the two runways, highway and express railways, but the transport links, hey ... The village is modelled in the scenery.
- TerraSync has it all! Updates during redesigning process 2012 are published every week on TerraSync.
- Taxiway bridges: new Position, improved lightning (published 07/2012)
- New 850-standard: new Layout with all parking positions and improved taxiways (under development)
