Percentage of traffic


Recommended Posts

I have MTX 5.3b.

Just want to know what 100% traffic actually means... 100% per flight plans or 100% gate full or something else?

I'm asking because I saw people saying that 25% is most realistic (and they have it at 25%) but than some have it at 100% and say this is most realistic.. now.. I tried 100% and I think everything was completely full.. well, this is not very realistic, I don't think airports are always 100% full.

100% are defined as the point where adding more schedules makes no sense, since FSX breaks down, all taxiways get stuck in congestion.

Most real world airports are far away from this level of schedules, so on them 25-30% gives the best realism - if you want realism, that means are happy if nothing happens over 20 minutes. One the major airports (LAX,ATL,ORD,FRA as example ) are near to their capacity, so let us say realistic at 75%, and one airport in the world is notorious at 105% - Heathrow.
