Here's Newcastle IRL last Saturday from one of the local school Cherokees: that runway is SHORT

It is not so short. Many airports have runways used for shorter flights (which I mean not 14 or 15 hours) with shorter runways in use than 2,300 metres. Yes, fully loaded and fueled A380s or B787s would not like it but most European traffic could do it easily and even USA etc. with lower weight wide bodied aircraft. The Cherokee could land and takeoff 3 times at least! ;)

oh yes - i mean for an emirates 777 it's short. Clearly if you want to test yourself on a tight runway, go to Eshott, 20 miles to the North or Currock Hill across the Tyne (both are UK2000 VFR North or freeware elsewhere)

Saying that, I've landed an empty a380 using ils on the sim at newcastle. the only problem is there isnt really enough room to taxi to the terminal :D The right wing sort of clips the boundary fence and you can't make that corning without using the grass

 

No description available.

I know it's all work in progress, but usually your announcements are made very shortly before release. So @Ed Correia can you please let the developers know they need to look at the runway lights:

  • PAPI for RWY07 should be located on the RH side
  • I see 2 green threshold light bars, of course there should only be 1 at the displaced threshold
  • I can see one bar of red lights shortly before the concrete starts, spanning for the whole width of the runway, laying on top of the approach lighting. That bar of red lights should not be there
  • I see two sets of red lights at the end of the runway. There should only be one bar for REILs placed at the very end of the runway. No red wing bars.
  • RWY centreline lights should not stop at the displaced threshold of the opposite runway 25. They should continue until the beginning of the stopway, which is only 15m long.

For reference:

Otherwise it looks very good indeed, happy to know that it will be made compatible with EU England and not just TrueEarth! :)

Excited page open hitting refresh waiting now for it. Looks really nice about time we had a up to date Ncl to fly into and from great job has the metro line been modelled in it. Can’t wait to get exploring and have a good walk around it.

Have passed on the feedback but it appears there may be an error with my installation!

Amazing!

But could you please step now down to Gatwick! :D 
We really need a great Gatwick scenery! :) 

Gatwick.... I think you find Manchester is in a more desperate state, theres a whole new concourse missing.

Will this airport not work for those who have Open LC & Global? 

Hi David

Most of the English airports required England

If you go here you can see that you need England or the True Earth ( at the bottom)

That's abit annoying for those who haven't got true earth & don't really have any interest in purchasing it. The majority of English airports I own seem fine with global & LC

You don't need to purchase True Earth GB

Do you have England region?

If you are not interested in buying either one then UK 2000 version would be perfect for you but Orbx one needs England or TrueEarth

It should work openLC EU as that's a landclass product similar to England.

This was indeed an error in Ed's install (doubled-up with the default airport). I've removed the offending image from the OP!

Thanks Greg! Doubled-up lights explain a lot, but that would mean the PAPI lights on the RH side would still have been missing, unless of course those were suppressed due to that install error. (Haven't bought it yet, so can't check)
