James M. Cox Dayton International, Ohio (OH). This is part of the eleventh round of airports issued by Alpha India Group. AIG Ground creates high quality AFCADs for default and add on scenery airports. Airports are created drawing on the best available resources and aim to simulate the real world airport as closely as possible but also to ensure good levels of traffic with realistic parking and good flow of traffic around the airport. By Patrick Finch and Alpha India Group.
Dayton Ohio's perhaps two most famous sons were Wilbur and Orville Wright, who in 1903 launched the world's first manned flying machine.
The airport is named after James M. Cox, a former Ohio governor who in the 1930's used political connections in Washington D.C. to obtain funding from the U.S. Works Projects Administration (WPA), to build the airport at its present site. The airport officially opened on December 17, 1936 as the Dayton Municipal Airport. It received its existing name, the James M. Cox Dayton International Airport, in 1975. As recently as 2008 the airport served as many as 2,800,000 passengers a year.
The airport is served by nine airlines - Air Canada, AirTran Airways, American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Midwest Airlines, United Airlines, and US Airways.
A NOTE TO UTX USERS:
In order to be able to have the necessary space to fit the new passenger terminal and expanded ramp area in the scenery, it is possible that UTX roads may run through these areas. As I am not myself a UTX user, I can not be sure as to whether this will happen or not. If this would happen to be the case in your situation I apologize, but unfortunately there is no solution I am able to offer.
Here are the improvements which have been made from the default version:
ADE (Airport Design Editor) by Jon Masterson is an invaluable freeware utility for developing AFCADs and the latest version - 1.47.07 - is designed for both FSX and FS9 use - introducing Jim Vile's graphical approach editor to FS9 use as well.
FSX Lights by Jim Dhaenens are an excellent set of apron lights which really help give an airport a finished look. Thanks to Jim for allowing AIG to use his lights in our packages and for permission to include the library in our downloads.
As mentioned earlier, please see the accompanying Installation.txt file for detailed installation instructions.
Comments and feedback appreciated. Look out for further Alpha India Group AFCADs coming soon!
