displaced threshold

Recommended Posts

 I have noticed that arriving planes at runway 28 for TIST and 27 for KSAN will land correctly at the threshold point, but you cannot tell; a departing plane to line up and wait, then tell the arriving plane that the departing plane is in position, it will result in a collision.

That's a pity. If the real word airports would only consider landing over the top of lined up aircraft followed by aircraft taking-off over other aircraft in their landing roll (like some crazy aviation version of leap frog) just think how much they could increase their capacity!! ???

But count me out! I'd switch to trains ?

Sorry, just asking for some clarification.  The planes at KSAN land on the runway now (not threshold) correct?  Also, can you give the command, "Line up and wait", and or "Line up and wait behind next landing a/c??"

TIST is OK KSAN not but that's maybe the problem with the sunk aircraft. Unfortunately KJFK doesn't have displaced threshold feature I guess.

Really? I have not tested that one out yet, but obviously KJFK has several displaced thresholds.  VIc, can you confirm it KJFK's displaced thresholds are intended to function realistically, or if not whether something planned for them?

I beg to differ.  Please take a closer look at the approach ends of Runways 31R, and 22R, for example.  Both have substantial displaced thresholds, that are visibly marked, both in the sim, and in the real world.

I thint what Vic ment to say was "KJFK has no displaced thresholds simulated.....yet" :)

I thought that Pro would just automatically recognize displaced thresholds in every airport and adjust traffic accordingly.  Perhaps Vic could offer a bit more insight into how this works, and whether there is a problem or intent to go back and include them in the other airports that have them.

Thank you for noting it.  These are all mostly small problems.  I am loving PRO!   It just needs a bit more polishing, but I am still glad you released it when you did, rather than waiting :-)

@Renhoef: Nu alleen schiphol nog dan is alles geregeld...

 

If only we could get a voice command clearing landing aircraft to cross RWY whatever on their way to the terminal all would be well ;-)

No more sinking aircraft at KSAN, and airplanes landing at the numbers since I downloaded SP1. Thanks. Good work....

Is the SP for KSAN out?  I have not seen any announcements. Just checked my download and it appears to be the same version as before.

Not doubting you, but still not seeing it here.  Perhaps different customers get links to different servers, and not all have been updated yet.  Will wait a bit longer and check again.

The zip file is the same name, you have to open the zip file to see the Tower!3D SP1 and Tower!3dPro SP1 executable.

Also the runway lights are bright again.
