Seattle Tacoma International Airport, Washington (WA) for the default scenery. By Matthew Brooks / Alpha-India Group.
This is KSEA - Seattle-Tacoma International, Alaska for the FSX Default airport and was produced using ADE V1.39.07. KSEA is one of the best reproduced default airports in FSX but has since gained a third parallel runway and a number of other changes - including significantly increased traffic. KSEA is base to Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air and sees large volumes of domestic U.S. travel as well as some international traffic from both U.S. and international airlines. Fedex have a base here and Air Contractors are represented with a sizeable number of aircraft. A number of international cargo airlines call here and Google Earth shots show and an exceptionally large volume of trucks and waiting cargo airside.
KSEA Seattle-Tacoma International is a very busy airport. Any arrangement of the runways calls for aircraft to cross active runways to reach the apron or to reach a runway for takeoff. The risk of timeouts whilst waiting for arriving or departing aircraft is significant.
In this Afcad, I set 16L/34R aside for takeoff only, 16C/34C for landing only and 16R/34L for both landing and takeoff.
To maintain a good flow of traffic around the airport and avoid timeouts, I have used the overlay and diamond taxiway techniques at junctions between taxiways and runways. This means that you will see aircraft arriving, for example, on 16C/34C and taxiing across 16L/34R whist other aircraft are taking off on that runway. This is deliberate and enables the airport to operate closer to reality than disappearing aircraft would.
Approach codes for the new runway - 16R/34L - were very kindly written for the Afcad by Jim Vile based on current approach plates in Jeppesen charts. The new version of ADE, which is in beta, made this process very much easier with the new approach mode designed by Jim. However, writing full approach code for as busy an airport as this remains a complex matter and beyond the scope of my knowledge at present.
Jim Vile also very kindly dealt with the diversion of South 154th Street, additional roads and the traffic for them.
ADE (Airport Design Editor) by Jon Masterson is an invaluable freeware utility for developing Afcads and the latest beta version - 1.39.07 - is significantly advanced with the addition of the Approach Mode, written by Jim Vile. My thanks to both Jim and Jon for all their help and support on this and all AIG projects.
