[Finished] Airport MAX Out @ KHOU - 061530ZJAN18

Airport MAX Out Houston Hobby
Server: Expert

Airport: KHOU

Time: 1530Z

Hello Again!
Airport MAX Out has been off the air for a couple of weeks now, but as winter break is just around the corner, I thought I would get our very first 2018 event started! Last year, I took a poll on which airport you guys wanted to see my MAX Out next. We had over 150 votes, and came to an astonishing vote of 21% for VHHH. However a couple of weeks ago, a fellow community member made a fill the airport event at VHHH, so I will be skipping the first place airport. Don’t worry, we will be returning to that airport some time in February! Instead, we will be flying out of KHOU, our second place airport! I hope to see all of you at this event and enjoy 2018 in Infinite Flight!

Airport Information

William P. Hobby Airport (IATA: HOU, ICAO: KHOU, FAA LID: HOU) is an international airport in Houston, Texas, 7 miles (11 km) from downtown Houston. Hobby is Houston’s oldest commercial airport and was its primary commercial airport until Houston Intercontinental Airport, now George Bush Intercontinental Airport, opened in 1969. After the opening of Intercontinental, Hobby was closed for several years before it became apparent it needed to be reopened. It became a secondary airport for domestic airline service as well as a regional center for corporate and private aviation.

Houston Hobby is a major focus city airport for Southwest Airlines which operates international as well as domestic flights from HOU. Hobby was the seventh-largest airport in Southwest’s network as of 2015. Hobby is classified as a medium-sized airport, and is currently the third-largest of this airport classification in terms of passengers (behind only St. Louis and Nashville in that order). Southwest opened its first international terminal at Hobby and began service from Hobby to Mexico and Central and South America on October 15, 2015.

The airport covers 1,304 acres (528 ha) and has four runways. Its original art deco terminal building, which was the first passenger airline terminal in Houston, now houses the 1940 Air Terminal Museum.

About The Event

At our last event, we had one whole airport MAXED Out! However, it was run on Ts1 and the event fell apart! This time, we will be having the event on Expert to try and fix everything that went wrong at our last one!

On January 6th, 2018, everyone will spawn in 10 to 15 minutes early to prep their flight plans and fuel and payload. After I have requested push back, everyone else may do the same. Please then taxi realistically to the runway and fly to your assigned destinations! We will be implementing the Clearance Delivery system again for those of you who want to take your flight to the next level!

  • If you are interested in being an Passenger Airline, you can select an airline that services that airport. You must also choose a plane that services that airport and use the real life destination given aka Gate 32 Delta 737-800 KHOU-KATL.
  • If you are interested in being a Cargo Airline, once again select an airline and route that services that airport. Since Infinite flight does not include Southwest cargo, just use any southwest plane!
  • If you are interested in General Aviation, there are minimal restrictions, as long as you don’t utilize wide bodies or any other commercial viable aircraft. (A318 and 737-700 BBJ are OK).


At KHOU, there are 4 Commercial Airlines: American Eagle, Delta, Jet blue, and Southwest
