T3Dpro KPHL aircraft stuck if hold short of taxiway E H

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Been doing a SP session on T3Dpro and came across aircraft getting stuck. See this screenshot. Log included.

Air shuttle 6301 was instructed to taxi to runway 27R at E via taxiway's H, E.

Southwest 237 landed on runway 26 and was instructed to taxi to terminal via A, D, H but to hold short of taxiway E so that the Air shuttle could pass. 

The southwest aircraft did hold short of E but the Air shuttle got stuck when going by. See screenshot linked above.

Sadly you will get that a lot of times at every airport. The planes don't really stop in front of the taxiway, as they should, they sometimes stick their front on the taxiway they are being supposed to hold short on. That's a known issue and happens a lot of times, especially with bigger jets and taxiways that are not at a 90-degree angle, as it is the case in your screenshot.

This issue is very annoying and the only way to get around this problem is to learn on which taxiways you can use the hold short command, without the plane moving too far. On the other hand, you might need to use the ´´hold position´´ command or let the planes hold at another taxiway which is further away from the one you have passing traffic on if you know what I mean^^

And actually having commercial airlines land on 26 is not very realistic either. You almost can't have it active and have to just reassign the occasional plane to it.
