Terminal, Apron, Ramp - what's the distinction?

Recommended Posts

I'm a relative newbie to Tower but have some great success building my own local airports over the last few months - just or fun.


Now I've been playing awhile I am puzzled by how Tower behaves differently, if at all, with aircraft movements involving Terminals, Aprons and Ramps?


There are commands options that explicitly use these three terms but does this mean aircraft behaviour is different and if so how?


I'm assuming that there is some connection with Airfield editor's different Taxiway objects (Terminal in/out, and Terminal-Parking) but what is it?


Anyone knowledgeable out there?


PS. The manual doesn't really help.
