12NOV21 / 0600Z - Friday Night Flight: You're Gonna Need A Bigger Airport @ MMMX


What happens when you cross a big city with an airport that can’t expand? That’s right, MMMX airport is what happens. Experiencing this awesome airport is always fun, so for this week’s Friday Night Flight we are heading there! The airport does have two runways despite its small footprint, but the taxiway network can be a challenge to some!

Being the major airport in Mexico, route choices from the airport are huge. For this event we’ll focus on other Mexican airports including MMOX and MMPR, both in 3D, and MMRJ, MMSD, and MMUN, all big airports in the country. A small selection of other airports outside of Mexico will also be available for IFATC to open.

On the Expert Server, IFATC will open these airports from 0600Z on Friday to 0600Z on Saturday, and you can use any of our established routes during the event!

This week’s stream will be hosted on YouTube. You can watch it below!


MMMX originally opened in 1915 as Balbuena Military Airport. How many runways did the airport have at this time?

I take pity on whoever decides to control on radar at MMMX.

Nah, but I see why you think that considering you control an average of 0.2 aircraft every time you control

“Try to open as many frequencies along the stream flight”

During stream: “Why are TGS the only frequencies open?”
