05JUN21 / 2000Z - Welcome to the Theme Park Capital of the World! @ KMCO [FINISHED]

Welcome to my very first organized fly-in event on the forum! This fly-in ranges from short-haul flights to 14 hour long hauls into other continents! I hope you guys enjoy the event and have fun!

Welcome to Orlando International Airport (ICAO: KMCO, IATA: MCO)! Located Southeast of Downtown Orlando, MCO (formerly known as McCoy Air Force Base) is the busiest airport in Florida and the 10th busiest in the United States. MCO used to be an air force base and is designated as an emergency location for Kennedy Space Center as it has close proximity, in the event a spacecraft falls short of Kennedy Space Center.

The Airport serves 44 airlines and has 135 nonstop destinations internationally and domestically, a hub for Silver Airways, and a focus city for Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and JetBlue. MCO is having most international service beyond the North and South American continent up again within the next few months, including Dubai, Manchester, London, and Frankfurt. The busiest route domestically is to Atlanta, Georgia, and the busiest route internationally is to London Gatwick (in 2019). Southwest Airlines serves the most passengers at the airport, with 8.34M passengers from June 2019 to May 2020.

MCO also serves 6 cargo carriers, going to 23 destinations for cargo.

MCO has 2 terminals, and 4 airsides, 2 for each terminal. There is one airside for each corner, and transported to and from each airside to the main terminal is by a tram.

There is a 1.8 billion dollar project in the works that was approved on May 15th in 2015, where a new terminal will be built a mile south of where the current terminal is right now at Orlando. The building began in 2017 and is expected to be operational by the end of the year.

If IFATC is present, you are to listen and follow every instruction they give you. I will not be responsible for violations you may receive.
If IFATC is not present, please maintain special awareness when flying into the airport and on the ground, and have good communication with fellow pilots.
Use FPLtoIF, Simbrief or other IF third-party websites for better experiences when flying.
Maintain good spacing with planes behind and in front of you.
Please park at the correct gate area upon arrival.
Most importantly, have fun!

This was my very first organized fly-in on the IFC forum. Please tell me what you guys think, and as always, please tell me if I made any mistakes! I tried my best to follow realistic airport procedures.


I’ll take this…but what plane is it?

Can I have this gate

@bbrockairbus You have been signed up to fly into Orlando from Miami! Have fun, and thanks for joining!

You may take any American Airlines Aircraft you wish. I recommend using Flightaware so you can get the aircraft they use in the real route

Ill take this one!

Thank you @Smile760981

Can I have a Silver airlines route? (KFLL → KMCO)

For one, the unofficial MCO realism police (me) approves, and for two, could I get this gate?

Anyway if you could add a gate for JetBlue from Buffalo? A320 please.


Yeah, since it is not a listed assignment, you may fly it without having to get signed up or asking me.
