29MAY21 / 0030Z - Fly-out at The Pearl of the Orient Seas! @ RPLL

Welcome to the Fly-Out at The Pearl of the Orient Seas at Ninoy Aquino International Airport! This is my first event that I have set up with widebody aircraft! I hope you enjoy it!


Welcome to Ninoy Aquino International Airport! Ninoy Aquino International Airport, formerly and still commonly known as Manila International Airport, and is also called NAIA, is located in Metro Manila, serving hubs to Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific. The airport was named after a Filipino Politician, Beningo “Ninoy” Aquino Jr., who was tragically assassinated on the airport grounds in 1983. The Airport serves 47 airlines serving 96 destinations in 28 countries, and 38 domestic destinations. The airport also serves 10 cargo carriers. In those routes, 47,898,046 passengers were flown in 2019.

The airport has only 2 runways, 06/24 and 13/31, but a third runway proposal was given to be adjacent to runway 06/24 and could start handling from 30-40 planes per hour to 60-70, however it could disrupt operations on Runway 06/24. Because of this, Sangley, a naval station built by the US Military that stopped service in 1971, could be used for a third runway for RPLL until the long-term expansion is planned.

Sangley Island could be brought back into use, as the government has a 10 billion dollar plan to expand Sangley Island to make into the new Manila airport. It would be similar to the Hong Kong airport layout but has 2 runways on each side instead of one.

RPLL is one of 2 airports in the Philippines to be able to operate the A380, the other being Clark International Airport. However, the A380 does not operate here due to possible delays and inconvenience to other flights, and due to the taxiways and runways not meeting the “Wing-tip-to-wing-tip” safety rule. However, an Emirates A380 was flown here to Manila at one point, celebrating the move to Terminal 3. The flight was flown by the first Filipino pilot certified to fly the A380, Franklyn Desiderio.

Terminal 2 was in fact, opened back up very recently, back in February 2021. Terminal 2 was the site of what was then, Manila International Airport. The structure was destroyed by a fire in 1972 and was replaced by a smaller terminal. The terminal was YET AGAIN destroyed by another fire in 1987. In 1991, the French Government gave a small loan to the Filipino Government, to help plan and pay for Terminal 2, and the Japanese Government did the same thing. In August 2014, a plan was made to renovate and connect Terminal 1 and 2. A Philippine village hotel was also destroyed in the process. The Terminal was finally reopened in February 2021.

When requesting a gate assignment, please list the gate, and the callsign you will use for the flight. Please stick to the gate that you are assigned and the callsign you will give me.

Ex: Can I be assigned to Gate 1? My callsign for the flight will be N96AF.

Due to an Open Beta glitch, I was unable to access the gate info for Terminal 4, so the terminal will not be available to us for the event. There will also unfortunately not be any cargo routes to fly at the event due to Spawn Dot glitches and size restrictions.

If IFATC is present, you will be required to listen and to follow every instruction that they give you. I will not be responsible for violations or reports you may receive.
If IFATC is not present, please be aware of your surroundings when on the ground or in the air. Use unicom to announce what you will be doing.
Use Simbrief, FPLtoIF or other flight plan generators to generate your flight plan. SIDs and STARs must be used to have a smooth way in and out of airports.
Maintain a 1000ft and 5nm separation from the plane behind you or ahead of you.
Most importantly, be sure to have fun!

Please let me know if there were any errors, as this was made in 4 hours, and I will correct them as soon as possible.


Very nice and detailed event. Good Job! I just wanted to ask if there is a possibility if you could add SQ917 (Singapore Airlines flight RPLL-WSSS), as it is a pretty popular route out of Manila. I myself have flown this route multiple times because I part-time live in Manila. If you would consider to add this I could give you more information about this flight.
