Honolulu International Airport, Hawaii (HI), USA. This airport update is for PHNL with two optional files made only for the FSX default airport: one version with the crosswind runways activated where all four runways will be used for takeoff/landing and one version as the default runway operation. Assigned parking with extra parking, new control tower, fuel tank farm, helipad, support vehicle roads rebuilt and many other improvements, airport views are from the roof of the control tower (when in tower view). By Ray Smith.

There are 3 BGL files: PHNL_RS.BGL, PHNL_CW_RS.BGL and a PHNL_OBJ.BGL file.

Runway Operation Files:

  • The PHNL_CW_RS.BGL file is with the crosswind runways operating where all 4 runways will be used simultaneously.
  • The PHNL_RS.BGL file is the same as the default runway operation.
  • Assigned parking is the same in both files.

To Install:

If you are using my earlier version please remove/delete these files first or overwrite them, if you would rather keep them remove them to another folder not associated with FSX.

1. Take the runway operation file of your choice (only one) and place this file into: Flight Simulator X/Addon Scenery/scenery folder.

2. Take the PHNL_OBJ.BGL file and place this file into: Flight Simulator X/Scenery/Global/scenery folder.

3. There are jetway extensions, and to see these you need to add the textures for them, please follow these steps:

NOTE: If you have already done this with any of my other airports then this step is not necessary.

Browse to the FSX\Scenery\NAME\Texture folder. Go down the list until you see (day texture) and (night texture). "COPY" them from that folder and "PASTE" them into the Scenery\Global\Texture folder.

4. Start up the Flight Sim and the changes will be present.


I.E. Make sure there is only ONE of the PHNL_RS.BGL FILES in the Addon Scenery/scenery folder at any time, remove/delete any other PHNL.bgl to avoid incorrect parking and other airport conflicts.

If you have any AI Traffic Addons please make sure they have "NOT" installed another AFCAD for this airport as this will also cause a conflict.

PLEASE NOTE: When using ATIS with the PHNL_CW_RS.BGL file you will hear the fake runways as well as the airport runways, this is the method used in activating non parallel runways and should be ignored or if preferred use the version PHNL_RS.BGL.

To Uninstall:

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

Hello, I have some issues, I am using FSX Steam, but some buildings don't appear, only the gates. and some other add-ons the buildings appear at an exact angle. But on this add-on, it never appears.
