Project Midwest

🇺🇸 Project Midwest 🇺🇸

Hello IF users! I am happy to announce the creation of Project Midwest. This thread is dedicated to keeping track of airports being worked on to implement updated 2D and new 3D for the Midwest region. The Midwest is very underrated with not enough 3D airports, so we are going to change that. Our goal in this project currently is to have every commercial airport eventually done. Both major airports and regional airports. And of course, some GA airports are being worked on as well. We look forward to sharing our progress with bringing the Midwest to life!

I have gotten permission from the editors to share these airports that are ready for release and works in progress. Please remember that even if an airport is ready for release does not guarantee it to come to the next update. Airport Mods and Staff pick the airports to go to the updates and when they think it should go.

Airport Requests

At this time we are not taking requests for Project Midwest. We will continue to make the airports that we choose. But do not worry, there is a lot in the works to make you all happy!


Honestly can’t wait for Chicago, looking forward to this!


Wow this looks awesome can’t wait


Thank you both! I can’t wait to start with an airport whenever my current airport is done.

Cool there, Michigan_Aviation!

Fort Wayne’s going to be lit. It’s even bigger than ORD. Truly the most beautiful, amazing airport out there.


Yes Minneapolis is being worked on!! I am excited to see how it’ll look when released!


Woah. I did not know that!

Another Midwest Airport is starting!

I will be working on a decent-sized GA airport, Delaware Municipal (KDLZ) located in Ohio. I’m looking forward to doing this and adding to Project Midwest.


Beginning of MSP’s C concourse


Looks amazing Zach!
