AFCAD File For RPLC, Diosdad Macapagal International Airport (previously Clark International Airport and Clark AFB) in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines, for use with the default scenery. The airport was changed based on Google Earth images and extensive research from other sources about the airport's development. By Matthew Brooks.
Diosdad Macapagal International Airport is an ex-USAF airbase and has significance as one of very few airports in the world where the Space Shuttle could land, although it is no longer listed as an active landing site. The airport is currently under development and is a significant hub for low cost airlines to and from the Philippines with longer term ambitions to replace Ninor Aquino Airport (RPLL) as the main gateway to the Philippines.
The airport currently domestic traffic from Cebu Pacific and South East Asian Airlines. It handles international traffic for AirAsia, Asiana, Tiger Airways, Hong Kong Express, Hong Kong Airlines and Transglobal - including their recently launched flights to Dhaka and Fujairah as well as international flights for Asian Spirit to and from Seoul. Cargo use includes a very significant UPS hub, Yangtze River Express, Transglobal and Pacific East Asia Cargo Airlines. Many of these flights are new in the Summer 2008 and AI flightplans not currently up to date with these have been requested from Alpha India Group. Phlippines Air Force C-130's are also frequent visitors.
Understanding of the exact situation at the airport currently was constrained by publicity surrounding the airport and the master plan that aims to make it one of the most advanced airports in Asia by 2015 - or whatever date the piece of publicity you read refers to. Plans include new terminals with a total of 205 jetways (31 of them for the A380) - figures that also vary according to the plan referred to. An A380 made a proving flight to the airport in October 2007.
I have aimed to make the best I can on the information currently available and apologies for any errors resulting from the lack of accurate data on the current situation.
Because of many limitations, almost none of the traffic showed in the default airport.
Principal changes to the default airport are:
- Aprons and stands re-drawn to the layout shown in Google Earth.
- Taxiways changed to the surfaces as shown in Google Earth.
- Further GA, Transglobal, AirAsia and South East Asia Air maintenance aprons added and associated buildings re-added or re-aligned.
- Gates and parking spots coded to appropriate airlines and aircraft.
- GA parking spots re-positioned and constrained to the appropriate aircraft types.
- MIL_Cargo parking spaces added for the Philippine Air Force C-130's visiting the airport.
Default buildings have mostly been retained but have been replaced where possible with better representations of the real thing - again constrained by the data available. The changes made to buildings result in the two files present in this package.
This AFD was tested with World of AI, MAIW's Exotic Alberts Package Philippines Part 1 and custom AI traffic. Current flightplans provide little GA traffic but use of Henry Tomkiewicz's Cessna Props package is always recommended.
- Extract FSX_RPLC_MB.BGL AND FSX_RPLC_MB_OBJ.BGL from the zip file to your Addon Scenery/Scenery folder in FSX and re-start FSX.
Please remember that this AFD is my work and is provided as freeware.
