@thenewpilot, you might want to see this.

I thought I said I was avoiding IFATC until I understand this whole SID and STAR thing, which may take beyond my subscription expiring and possible renewing in 2021, if ever. I’m still eagerly awaiting the porting and release of MSFS20 on Xbox

Maybe you can reconsider and stop by at our hometown airport 😉

Perhaps. We’ll see what comes about.

5/23 Charlotte’s widest taxiway. Always hated that runway will try to be there so you have someone in the airspace.

Flying out and into Charlotte, I never remembered that runway being used. A waste honestly. Hope to see you at the event!

it is due to FAA closing it unless needed in extreme cases. When it was last used normally in full operations there was a month where there were way too many close calls on arrivals and departures with 18C/36C and 18L/36R incursions etc. so FAA put a ton of restrictions on it’s use and it’s not like planes can’t handle a 10kt crosswind.
