Hello all! For this month’s IFATC at home, I will be doing something a little different for your general aviation fans! That’s right, GA IFATC at Home! Now unfortunately, the GA airports I want to open do not have Ground, Tower, or ATIS so it’s not possible to control those. However, I will be opening KTYS, which is a commercial airport but serves way more general aviation aircraft than commercial. I wish I could give you guys an actual GA airport but hopefully the GA theme will stick here! But any and all appropriate sized aircraft are welcome and would be appreciated!!
It is strongly encouraged to follow these taxi routes but not required, you can taxi at your discretion these are just what I prefer!
Taxi Instructions (Departures)
When parked at the terminal, make sure to have your taxi chart out ready and taxi to runway 23L at A8 or A9 via Alpha. When on the North-Western side of the airport, please taxi via G, G7, B, B7, hold short runway 23L and await takeoff clearance. If in a general aviation aircraft, feel free to hold short of runway 23L at B6 or B5
Taxi Instructions (Arrivals)
When arriving, please try to exit runway 23L at A5 or A4 and follow R1 or R3 to the gates because I will expect departing aircraft to use R2 out of the terminal. Of course, there is no way I can enforce this. For arriving GA aircraft, feel free to exit runway 23L to the right when able and you can either back-taxi runway 23R and exit at G4 and taxi via G to parking, or you can taxi B, B2, cross runway 23R and follow G to parking.
