About This File
LTFM Istanbul Airport for X-Plane 11 (11.30+)
Version GWS1.0 NATURAL (Sloped) and FLAT versions.
This is a slightly enhanced rendition of my LTFM Istanbul (future) Gateway version, furnished with SAM jetways,
DGS panels and marshallers for a better immersion. The new layout includes RWY 18/36 which is due to open next
week but there are no instruments yet to guide you to approach them. They will be added most probably with the
next update of AIRAC files.
Complete layout was redrawn based on more than 100 google Earth Pro hi-res screen shots stitched together and all
ground markings, direction and location signs along with gate/ramp numbers are placed as close to real life as
As the default X-Plane mesh is still very much outdated along with the mesh created during orthophoto creation
using Oscar Pilote's Ortho4XP, I made a patch file for the airport area using JOSM tool. I used official
AIP charts to obtain the elevations at certain points of the runways and aprons and also used cross section
obstacle charts to create the actual slopes of each and every one of the 5 current runways.
Installation instructions are in the readme files.
