help needed with project


Recommended Posts

hey VATUSA

 

As many pilots and ATC knows many airport lay outs have changed since FS2004. I want to start a project to help the pilot and ATC,, this project will be an all-in-one package for all airports in the US that have changed.

 

I have run into a roadblock. I have no clue all the airports that have changed since FS2004 or that will be changed. thats when i need your help:

 

1) what airports have changed since January 1, 2003 (i don't know what date the FS2004 was built so we will use this one)

- new runways

-new taxiways

-new approaches

-freq. changes

 

start listing

 

thank you

KMHT-Manchester-Boston regional airport added the following:

 

Extended runway 17/35 (2005)

Extended runway 6/24 and added safety runoff area at each end (just completed)

Added new taxi way to runway 6 ("hotel" I believe) so aircraft no longer need to backtrack. (2005)

Added new control tower (2007)(the old one still stands and is now a museum)

 

Note for Boston controllers: Runway 6/24 reopened on Friday 11/9

Best Regards,

KMSP added runway 35/17

Good luck with the list, but i think the forum is not the best place for that? Maybe something like a website with a "list" thing, where you type in Airport ICAO/Change notes would be more effective for this kind of project.

Right on the money

 

Michael perhaps a good idea would be to solicit the help of someone like Ruth McTighe and get an email with your idea sent out to the ATMs, Chiefs, Directors etc. They can then send their ARTCC's data to your(Or whatever central) email...or as Clemens said, they could input it through a website.

 

Good luck with the project.

Controllers have feelings too...

Oh wait, I forgot this was VATSIM and 90% of the population only cares about large airports.

 

No offense but I do think that you MIGHT be a tad bit [Mod - Happy Thoughts]umptive with that statement; I will agree that a large portion of the VATSIM community enjoys flying ATP but I can say with great certainty that for as much ATP as they may flight there is an equal balance of GA time as well with them. If you will ... they are having their cake and eating it too.

KBOS - new Rwy 14/32, recently (as I'm FS9, I'm not sure if it was included in FSX). As of three weeks ago, KBOS underwent a renaming of taxiways around the apron (K is now B, etc), which is so new we've decided to stick with the previous naming scheme for taxi instructions, and if pilots inform us they have updated charts, they get updated instructions.

 

KPVD - 5L/23R is now taxiway V, and 5R/23L is now 5/23.

And what Smitty said about PWM...although, as he so keenly pointed out, few care.
