For clarification, ALL airports will be available when Global comes to fruition. You will be able to spawn and land at ANY of the 11,000+ airport locations.
Airports which have been edited will be furnished with a complete set of spawn locations for every gate in real life. Buildings will be more defined. Terminal gates will have outlines defined (if they exist in real life).
Airports which have yet to be edited may or may not have several spawn locations. These will just be at the level they exist today in the basic XPlane World Repository. They WILL have appropriate runways however there may be only one or two spawn positions. Also the details of the aprons may be featureless.
My role (with the help from all of the other wonderful and gracious editors) is to help improve airports and provide continuous improvements to existing airports.
If your local airport has been edited then enjoy. If your local airport has yet to be “renovated” we WILL get round to it. This will not prevent you from taking off or landing there.
Remember that ALL of your airport editors are volunteers and are part of the greater community. We are volunteering our time (free of course) to make the IF experience better for YOU and of course ourselves.
I hope this note is helpful. As we go towards Global I still intend to devote most of my spare time to maintenance and continuous improvement of IF airports.
