Runway holding points

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Pay day recently so as a new comer to Tower 3D Pro I splashed out on EGKK and Real Colour using the 2019 Custom Schedule as I prefer real timetables. And being an airport I'm familiar with I thought it would be a good way to try and learn some more commands without it being mental but at the same time not very quiet.

One thing I am struggling with is to get aircraft to join Runway 26L at different taxiway's. Similar to what I have seen at runway 08R when it's busy smaller aircraft that don't need the entire runway to take off joins in further down the runway. On the 26L end, all I can get is aircraft joining 26L at Taxiway 'M' by default. I tried to get an EasyJet A320 to join 26L via Taxiway P Z A, as joining 26L from Alpha is more than enough runway and is just up one from 'M', but it didn't like it and route's itself to 26L via 'M'. I tried another one this time telling it Runway 26L via Taxiway P BR hoping it would go to the holding point at BR but it stopped, decided it didn't like it, and went to the default taxiway via 'M'

Can you do what I am trying to do or does the sim only allow planes to taxi right to the end of the runway threshold?

 

Any help appreciated!

 

James.

You need to assign the intersect with "at [taxiway]".

At Pushback:
[callsign], pushback approved, expect runway [xx], at [x]

After Pushback:
[callsign], runway [xx], at [x]   or
[callsign], runway [xx], at [x], via [xyz]

Ah thank you very much! I only did 'Pushback Approved Expect Runway 26L' then 'Continue Taxi' then tried to alter it but didn't seem to work, I think I did the command wrong (like Taxi via xxx At Taxi x or something like that) just tried the suggestions and works perfect, much easier traffic flow

Thank you very much for the assistance

 

James.
