What's new in CVS
In the hangar
Gijs de Rooy redraw the airport layouts for some of the Netherlands' most prominent airports, including Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (EHAM), Lelystad Airport (EHLE) and Volkel Air Base (EHVK). Taxiways and tarmacs are now correctly placed and up to date with the current situations. Another big improvement over the "old" airports is the use of shoulders (those concrete borders around taxiways), just as you would encounter at the real airports. The groundnetworks for these airports have been updated or created as well.
We will write a (short) report about the event and add some pictures.
