There have been several topics about real life runway usage and ATC using runways “incorrectly”.
I ran into trouble myself recently because of a situation at KSAN that didn’t match real life runway usage. I was in a sequence that was coordinated by an ATC that had left and was confronted with other pilots coming from the opposite direction, following real world procedures. It was messy.
I also see it happen at EHAM a lot.
Using 09 for incoming traffic for example, just because it is a green runway, while in real life that runway is never used that way. It doesn’t even have ILS.
I’ve created a topic about EHAM and runway usage but the information gets lost.
Would it be helpful when a wiki with runway usage information for each airport that it applies to would be created to help maximize reality in IF or would that go to far?
Maybe it could be added to @Kilt_McHaggis’s website?
I would like it and I would definitely check it before flying to an airport I don’t know in real life, which is most of them. :)
- yes, I think it would be a great tool
- no, I wouldn’t use it anyway
