These 2 BGL files were designed with the latest version of ADE (v1.26) and made only for the FSX default airport: one with the Crosswind rwy operating, now activated with ADE where all three rwy's will be used for takeoff/landing and one as default: assigned parking with extra parking, missing gates/animated jetbidges added where possible and numbered in the correct order, helipad added, extra fuel trucks, support vehicle roads rebuilt, new control tower building and many other improvements, airport views are from the roof of the control tower (when in tower view) fully tested with Ultimate Traffic/WOAI but not required, please view the readme before installation.

There are 2 BGL files: KTUS_ADE_RS.BGL and KTUS_ADE_CW_RS.BGL. The 'KTUS_ADE_CW_RS.BGL' version is with the Xwind rwy activated, the other version KTUS_ADE_RS.BGLis without parking is the same in both.

  • NOTE: When using ATIS with the KTUS_ADE_CW_RS.BGL file you will hear the fake rwy's, this is the method used in activating Xwind rwy's created by Jim Vile and should be ignored or if preferred use the version KTUS_ADE_RS.BGL.

To Install:

  1. Simply take the BGL file of your choice and place it into: Flight Simulator X/Addon Scenery/scenery folder.
  2. Start up the Flight sim and the changes will be present.
  • NOTE: PLEASE ONLY USE ONE BGL FILE AT A TIME. I.E. Make sure there is only ONE 'KTUS.BGL' FILE in the Addon Scenery/scenery folder at any time, remove/delete any other KTUS.bgl to avoid incorrect parking.

To Uninstall:

  1. Delete/remove the BGL file and the default will then be active.


ADE Utility - Jon Masterson.

Jim Vile for his Technique that activates crosswind runways.

TIP: When at KTUS in tower view: go to your control settings and look for the "View track/pan Toggle". Allocate a keyboard key stroke to it (i allocated a button on my X52 controller) this will unlock the user aircraft, then you can use the hat switch to pan 360 degrees around the airport, hitting the key stroke again (in my case a button) will return you to the user aircraft position.

Enjoy and happy flying.
