Real life features

DHL hub

Leipzig/Halle is just a small regional (yet international) airport. But it is the European DHL hub with 60 planes per night. The hub (warehouse, hangar and aprons) is modelled in the scenery.

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.

Taxiway bridges

A highway and railway lines go straight between the two runways. Three bridges connect the terminal with the northern runway.

Changed airport layout

We all use the mpmap ans what we see (in April 2010) is a little confusing: The southern runway in the old satellite image doesn't match the Airport layout in FlightGear. Well, FlightGear is right, Google Maps isn't. A few years ago, the southern runway was set parallel to the northern one. There are now two 08/26. Check out this newer satellite image while it was under construction.


There are only two working ILS for 08L and 08R. The 26L and 26R ILS don't seem to work properly.

  • ILS 08L (ILNE): 108.55
  • ILS 08R (ILSR): 111.75 (111.9 in FG 2.0.0)

All diagrams and charts are available for download.


Here is a selection of the models. YouTube video.
