KATL, or Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, is the world busiest airport. It is my favorite airport and I absolutely adore its layout. I do notice many people that aren’t entirely sure how to fly out of it so I will show you. This topic was inspired by @EthanT2!

Sorry, @Plane-Train-TV.

You have to be TL3 and above to post in #tutorials. You could ask a moderator for permission to post in #tutorials, and if granted someone will move it for you

Thanks for the help, will do!

I wouldn’t put these type of topics in tutorials. They’re not really tutorial material. Its more of a guide more than anything
