St. Mawgan Airport (aka Newquay Airport) (EGDG), UK. Provides parking spaces, some with the airline codes.
The accompanying AFCAD 'EGDG_ADE_FSX.bgl' may be installed in the 'Addon Scenery\Scenery' folder of your FSX installation which will then require no further activation. The new airport layout will subsequently appear by default.
Experienced AFCAD users may have their own folder into which they place additional AFCAD's, in which case, simply install it there.
Brief history of St Mawgan:
St Mawgan is the home of the RAF Search and Rescue Force Headquarters and all RAF SAR Sea King helicopter training, this role being performed by No 203 (R) Squadron. Originally a Ferry Command airfield during World War II, RAF St Mawgan closed in 1945 before reopening in 1951 as a Coastal Command maritime patrol aircraft base. After 40 years in this role, the last Nimrod Maritime Reconnaissance aircraft finally left St Mawgan for RAF Kinloss in 1991. RAF St Mawgan is also the home of the Anglo-American Joint Maritime Facility manned by US Navy, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force personnel. Its role is to monitor surface and sub-surface shipping. Many RAF aircraft regularly detach to St Mawgan for short periods of exercise training. Newquay Cornwall Airport is located on the northern side of the airfield operating a variety of scheduled airline services and using RAF facilities provided under a MOD commercial contractual arrangement. All military flying operations will cease with effect from August 2008 at which time the airfield will transfer to a purely civilian operation.
All the new features have been added to the default FSX airport so there is no additional scenery as such. Known airlines which use Newquay airport currently are Air Southwest, British Airways, BMI Baby, Flybe, Isles of Scilly Skybus and Ryanair all which have available repaints and flight plans for AI use to enhance the look and feel of the airport. I believe some RAF Helicopter aircraft/repaints are also available. I have put in 32 parking spaces, some with airline codes, on an arbitrary basis as I don't know where exactly the civilian aircraft park and have treated the airport as wholly civilian as the FSX version seems to be just the northern part of the real airport. I have even added three jetways for the larger aircraft but once again this is purely fictional. Although the airport has three runways two of them are not used. There is ILS in one direction on the remaining runway. Taxiways now have names and signs so that you can follow ATC routeing.
Acknowledgements and Scenery tools used:
Just a note of homage to Lee Swordy for his AFCAD and TTools programs which have been the mainstay of my airport changes for FS2002/FS2004. Thank you Lee your programs were much valued and AFCAD2 sorely missed with the change to FSX.
Most of the work was done using ADE by Jon Masterson, currently in development but for which I give my heartfelt thanks as I used to do this all by hand when Lee Swordys AFCAD2 wouldn't work with FSX. Also available is FSX Planner, a similar "AFCAD2" type program which had other facilities not yet developed in ADE. I couldn't find a name or names to which to attribute the program but whoever you are - thanks. Both programs are worth a look and are free for budding airport changers.
Hope this AFCAD proves useful, there will be more in the future.
