Hi Gabor,

Noticed a couple of bugs with this airport that should be easy to fix.

While the airport installs to the correct folder based on the current ICAO code (ie. FAOR) the airport internally still uses the ICAO code of FAJS. If Tower!3D needs to do a lookup to find the IATA code based on this ICAO code then it will fail as there is only a conversion for FAOR -> JNB and none for FOJS -> JNB.

This failure can be seen when trying to load the faor_gaandlocaltraffic.txt file. All GA traffic fails to load as they are using the ICAO code of FAJS instead of the correct code FAOR, but that's a RT error.

Cheers,
Daniel

So until Gabor fixes the RT at next release just find and replace FAJS with FAOR in the faor_gaandlocaltraffic.txt file for those that feel confident to do it?

Hello

I would have liked this airport before COVID 19, for traffic in the future, will you use the flightaware site, it can go back over a year at least ??

Thank you for your response in the meantime and good simulation
