Re: Static Text for Airports

Hi Roger, Matt W and I plan on making things by having lines drawn automatically for the letters/names so we can filter each thing, ie Taxiways, Ramp Labels, Building Labels, and then eventually Gates as well. The only downside is they won't scale as you zoom like Static Text, which may be better in...

Re: Summer Meetup 2019 | Aug 16-18 (Portland, OR)

Final reminder, we're in the last week for folks to register who will also want to enjoy the $125 a night room rate which ends August 5th! The current rate is now $219 per night, so that's nearly a $200 savings for two nights.

Re: Summer Meetup 2019 | Aug 16-18 (Portland, OR)

Just registered, so I will be there. My question is, do I have to stay at the hotel? I live here in PDX so, I was just going to go back and forth between the house during the event. Not at all. Had that been the case the registration would have been a combined cost that included the hotel stay. We ...

Re: KSEA TAXIWAYS

Now that they have approved simultaneous operations at KSEA, they almost never are landing the center runway anymore. Typically they land and depart the left and right, and depart 16L/34R. If it gets busy they will depart using the center runway. They also appear to try to land aircraft on 16L/34R i...

Also to clarify, not all controlled airports have a Delivery position. Some only have GND and TWR.

Re: True Earth Washington (ORBX)

ORBX was why I was not wanting to switch from P3D. Considering over the last 2 months I've started to switch, I picked the right time in the evolution between the two sims to match a switch too.

Re: Unable Flight Following

LOL. They had to put a temporary tower at Madras for it and publish arrival/departure instructions too.
