Airport Information

London Heathrow is known as one of the biggest and busiest airports in the world. Along with London Gatwick they produce some stellar passenger, aircraft and cargo numbers! We chose these airports this year due to it being firstly 3D along with Gatwick. They also have so many destinations to choose from!

If you want to see London Heathrow and Gatwick from a more technical perspective here is the airport charts

Next is London Gatwick

For London Gatwick I decided to make it pilots choice. Pilots can choose their own gates, routes, aircraft and flight time. This can allow them to fly with friends etc. Please try and keep it realistic and not reserve a Qantas A330 at Gatwick.
