Project Montana

About

With over 147,000 square miles of land, hundreds of mountain ranges, thousands of water bodies, and 3 National Parks, my home state of Montana is an absolutely beautiful place to visit both in real life and Infinite Flight. Unfortunately, with less than 10 edited airports and very few flights per day, it is severely underrated and neglected in our simulator. That is why I joined Infinite Flight Airport Editing. Over the next year I hope to edit as many significant airports in Montana as possible to make the state a more enjoyable place to fly in and out of. I will start with larger commercial airports and work my way down to some of the most interesting GA airports, making each as realistic and high quality as possible. I hope that many other editors can contribute to this effort as well, and that we can make this beautiful place great again in Infinite Flight!


Contributers

Here is a list of people who have redone airports in Montana. I am the only one who is actively working on the project (PM me if you want to join me), but I have also included a list of people who have contributed airports in the past. Thanks for your work guys!

Airports/Progress

Below you will find several tables of airports categorized by type and the current status of the each. Each table (except for GA) is organized by size and passengers per year. In the status section I have included tags that show the current place in the editing process of each, as well as my plans for future reworks. (High Priority) indicates that I plan do to the airport, (Low Priority) indicates that I would like to do the airport at some point but do not plan on it, and (Requested) means that an IFC member has asked for it to be done and I will do it as soon as I can. If you would like to request an airport in Montana to be given priority, please reply to this post and include the ICAO and the reason you want it done (please give a good reason). Also note that I have not included all of the GA airports in Montana to save space, only the ones that interest me or that have already been redone.

Hey man, it’s awesome to meet a fellow Montanian! I live near KMSO as well and just redid the entire airport. It will be in the next update:-)

Also, I will be redoing this airport as requested to make it more realistic. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I’ve seen it before but forgot about it.

I am sad!!! I can’t Edit there but i want.

I have been in the Airport Editing Team for a long while but i haven’t edited one Airport because in the World Editor it says i need to pic a Sencery folder and i have piced a Sencery folder “Airport Editing folder” Why?

And it dosn’t work to unzip all the Airports from Github.

You need a special folder

Hi! Please review the set up section of the Beginners Guide and/or contact ask on the IFAET for help. Hopefully you can start editing soon:-)

Contact a supervisor? Uh, please no. I don’t want to be bothered with every simple question. Just ask in slack for assistance.

I can begin soon, my good pilot @Jens_Severin has helped me!!

I can’t edit because i think my PC can’t handle it.

Hey, maybe you can ask that on slack. I’m sorry your computer is not enough to run World Editor.
