Interesting I could say, maybe it should be added? Too many small airports is my problem. But it could be a prop plane’s dream.


Doesn´t Chicago has the same small airfields?

I guess it does, but then again that’s why it isn’t super popular.

Nor Paris, and that region is too small. Maybe the region needs to be both big and have lots of commercial airports, like SoCal.

I agree. London has many big commercial airports, and it explodes on Advanced as I usually see it.

And its bigger than Paris. Another crucial thing is the possibility of reaching a higher than 15000ft cruise altitude.

Very true! Like Hawaii, you’re more than capable in reaching over 15,000ft.


So the perfect region should have:

  1. Lots of commercial airports.
  2. Have a large extension.
  3. Be able to reach at least 20000ft as cruising altitude.

Back on topic: Is the region very mountainous?

Its almost flat. No mountains. Some hills to the south.

Exactly, and their are about 15 of them that are just as good as the towered airports. In the Chicago region.
