King Abdulaziz International, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This is part of the ninth round of airports issued by Alpha India Group. AIG Ground aims to create high quality AFCADs for both FS2004 and for FSX 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 Matthew Brooks and Alpha India Group.

King Abdulaziz International Airport at Jeddah is Saudi Arabia's third largest airport and covers an area of 105 square kilometers. The South Terminal serves the largest users - Saudi Arabian Airlines and Nas Air of Saudi Arabia. The North Terminal serves the large number of international airlines which serve the airport on a scheduled and charter basis. As a major city in Saudi Arabia, Jeddah attracts services from all the main Middle Eastern airlines (many serving with both narrow-body and wide-body aircraft) and a high proportion of the main European and some Asian airlines. Emirates placed the A380 on their route here from the beginning of June.

Additionally, there are two HAJJ Terminals - East and West. Jeddah serves as the main arrival and departure point for Muslim pilgrims making their pilgrimage to Mecca and, for the period of the HAJJ, the airport becomes extremely busy.

There is also a sizeable cargo operation - both Saudi Arabian Cargo have a hub here and a number of regular visitors include the favourite workhorses of the Middle East - the Il-76.

A sizeable military apron welcomes Saudi transport and fighter aircraft and the airport also includes a substantial area of parking for GA and Royal flights, including two royal terminals.

Main Changes:

  • Re-positioned runways 16C/34C and 16L/34R by 115 meters and 2450 meters respectively to place them in their real position relative to 16R/34L.
  • Re-positioned and re-aligned the two HAJJ terminals by 650 meters each to complete a condensing of the over-large airport provided as default.
  • Re-drew all aprons and taxiways, mixing textures as seen in Google Earth.
  • Laid out parking throughout the airport as shown in Jeppesen charts from March 2010 - aside from military and royal parking, which was based on Google Earth images of October 2009. I also included 5 A380 gates for the Emirates current routes and potential routes here by other A380 customers.
  • Changed approaches for runways 16C/34C and 16L/34R for their new positions.
  • Added an extensive vehicle network, closely modeled on the real world airport along with extra fuel trucks.
  • Edited all existing taxisigns and added new signs as needed for the changed taxiways.
  • Placed airport views from the roof of the control tower (when in tower view).
  • Added a large area of landclass to more closely represent the airport's location on the fringes of the city rather than out in the middle of desert.
  • Added a large amount of roads, vehicles, airport lighting and numerous others scenery elements to add realism to the airport.

Jon Masterson and the ADE (Airport Design Editor) development team for this by invaluable freeware utility for developing Airports. The latest version - 1.47.07 - is designed for both FSX and FS9 use - using Jim Vile's graphical approach editor to FS9 use as well. My thanks to both Jim and Jon for all their help and support on this and all AIG projects.

Installation:

  1. Ensure that you do not have any other bgl file for OEJN in FSX. If you have, remove the file from FSX or delete it.
  2. Place the file AIG_OEJN_ADEX_MB_Default.bgl and AIG_OEJN_ADEX_MB_Default_CVX.bgl in your Addon Scenery/scenery folder.
  3. Place lightsob.bgl in your Scenery/Global/scenery folder.
  4. Place lights1.dds, almwht.dds, in your Scenery/Global/Texture folder.
  5. There are static jetway extensions at the HAJJ terminal East and to see these you need to add the textures for them, please follow these steps:
  • Browse to the FSX\Scenery\NAME\Texture folder. Go down the list until you see jfk_jetway.dds (day texture) and jfk_jetway_LM.dds (night texture).
  • "COPY" them from that folder and then "PASTE" them into the Scenery\Global\Texture folder.
  • Note: If you have taken steps 3, 4 and 5 before with other airports and have these textures installed, you do not need to repeat them.

Uninstall:

  1. Remove or delete the file AIG_OEJN_ADEX_MB_Default.BGL and AIG_OEJN_ADEX_MB_Default_CVX.bgl from your Addon Scenery/scenery folder and re-start FSX.
