Does anyone know or have a lookup which states which aircraft are allowed to land on each type of runway? E.g. Bravo, Charlie, Delta?
I think you can fly a 737 at a delta airport.
Depends on the runway length?
Ok so for example A380 = Bravo
The program itself will not let you start at an incorrect airport and will also give you a violation if you land at an incorrect runway. Is there a definitive list which says which aircraft are allowed. One obviously exists within the programming?
I would expect this to be available as a help for new people so they know what to expect.
When you’re playing IF you can open the map. Depending on what aircraft you’re flying, you cannot land at an airport if the ICAO codes are in orange
The A380 was able to land at KOSH a few years back for the air show so it all depends on the weight of the aircraft and the elevation of the runway. For example while KASE has a decent sized runway almost no aircraft in Infinite Flight can take off of it due to its high elevation and the air being less dense. :)
The only violation restrictions on this in IF is that smaller airports will not accept heavy aircraft (larger than a 737-900 or an A321). I think they took out the orange airport code, at least in Live, but you can check to make sure your destination airport is acceptable by holding the “map” button, sliding it to “map+info”, and clicking the airport. If your plane is too large it will say something like that in the info bar.
OK so I took the time and went into live mode with each aircraft to see what restrictions are in place. The following aircraft can ONLY fly from BRAVO and CHARLIE runways without incurring violations. The rest can fly anywhere any time. THis does NOT mean it is safe to do so. For example landing a Boeing 737-900 at a class ECHO runway would not be recommended.
Boeing C17 Globemaster
I am now adding this info to my Excel Random Flight Generator so that now with one click of the button it will recommend a random plane, departure and destination whilst ensuring that the ‘challenge’ is reasonable to fulfil. Echo class and Grass strips are not included in my model. :)
There you go :)
Yup just found out… Thanx
1 year later…
I think that’s a bit of necroposting…just gonna put it that way
