Not a taxiway!

The guy that is horrible with titles is back! 🤗

Ok! So, I was flying in expert just a while ago when I noticed this:image
Attention all infinite flight pilots!! This means it’s not a taxiway. This is not a ramp to get off the runway! I just saw quite a few people just taxi through this. Thanks for reading and understanding.

I understand it’s not a taxiway, but what exactly is it?

That’s what I’d guess.

It’s a disused runway or taxi way I believe

It’s a closed taxy way that is no longer classified as safe or usable for aviation traffic.

I understand it’s not a taxiway, still won’t stop me from taxing through it though ¯_(ツ)_/¯

This is the area IRL-

Why was it closed? I don’t know, perhaps the tarmac is to weak to use or something.

I don’t think this is the right topic to mention this, try again somewhere else ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Taxiway is closed in real life. We edit what we see in satellite images.

it’s a closed taxiway or a taxiway under construction irl

I thought editors were not allowed to draw stuff in?

except these, they’re not allowed to edit in like unnecessary things such as welcome signs next to runways or text on taxiways

Ghosting’s will stop you if the Ifatc decides to ghost you on expert.

If it’s paved, It can be taxied on last time I checked. No IFATC with half a cashew for sense would ghost you for using a 150ft piece of paved surface to bring your plane to and off the runway.
