Currently in Infinite Flight, Buffalo only has arrival procedures. I’m going to show you from what direction to use the procedures.

If runway 23 is in use, the arrival they use in real life is the H23-Z arrival.

If runway 5 is in use, you the arrival they use in real life is H05-Z

Info for IFATC

So, when your getting the ATIS all set, at Buffalo, no intersection departures are allowed for all runways at Buffalo.

Also, if your controlling approach at Buffalo. If their using runway 23, only visual and GPS approaches is recommended. That’s what they use at Buffalo. If their landing on runway 5, then ILS, visual, and GPS approaches are used in real life. This is just a recommendation, not a requirement.

I hope this helps out for everyone flying into Buffalo and IFATC controlling Buffalo for tomorrow’s Friday Night Flight.
