About This File


Winnipeg James Richardson International

CYWG - Winnipeg


Special thanks to:

Gregory Putz - Buildings were converted from FS9 with permission for the original FS9 author. Gregory has invested hundreds of hours with the original FS9 scenery. The scenery was very well done with very high quality elements. Greg kindly shared permission to use and convert this stunning scenery to XPlane 11. If you still run FS9, or know a buddy that does, please encourage them to check out Greg's sceneries. Due to the high quality base, the conversion turned out amazing. Custom HD ground textures are coupled with Greg's stunning 3D models giving you a very immersive scenery.

Canada4XPlane - This scenery was created using custom ground textures kindly provided by Canada4XPlane. They are known for their high quality Canadian XPlane sceneries. Their content is a 'must' when flying to select Canadian cities. They have also done the SAM Seasons integration.

Awfsiu - For contributing custom animated SAM jetways

Mooze - For initially starting the project and contributing a base conversion.

professionally made, if sold as payware, can easily be sold over 30 bucks kind of quality. Attention to detail is amazing

Looks amazing! Especially the Winter season with all the snow and ice. Now with working jetways!

Points to note:

1. If you encounter problems with invisible jetways, try setting your objects slider (in graphics settings of X-Plane 11) to high (medium did not work for me)

2. It uses the SAM plugin so you need to download the SAM suite.

3. A letter (either) A or M should should appear in the top left part of the screen. 'A' stands for Automatic so the jetway should connect in automatic mode. 'M' stands for manual mode, therefore it has to be connected using the manual mode in the SAM airport operations section. Also if either letter is grey, then that means there is a compatible gate but it is not in range of the aircraft to connect. If the letter has a blue colour surrounding it then your plane is in range.

P.S. For the ToLiss A319 I got a successful dock on scenery load up at Gate 11. (Gate 12 is out of range. Atleast for the 'baby bus').


Hopefully this helps as a future reference. Happy flying 🙂

Excellent freeware! Wonderful work indeed. The scenery has a few quirks here and there but very very minor. Good airport to fly into, easy on frames. Works 100% as long as you follow the instructions.

Nice scenery but invisible jet jetways, log.txt says [object] 'uses blend glass but is not set to glass lighting'. Hm, had to set it to high actually but it worked, thx. Perhaps in the future there could be a version for people who might not be able to to run at high.

Response from the author:


Blend_Glass has 0 relevance to the issue in question.

The jetways are not loading correctly because your objects setting is not high enough. If you run your sim on "Low", you need to expect issues with your sceneries. Please run the scenery at "Medium" or above to fix this issue and for the scenery to run without issues.


I would appreciate if you made a support request first before writing a review.

Is this no longer working after the update? Everything was working fine before but the update is no longer working for me.

All I see is grass around CYWG; no taxiways, runways, buildings, etc.

I've done a fresh install of this scenery and the required libraries multiple times, but no success. My object setting is a HIGH too.

Response from the author:

The scenery works just fine. There has not been any "update" in months.

Reviewing a free product 5/10 stars simply due to your own negligent error in installation and management of the package is unacceptable, especially since you did not reach out to me anywhere for prior help in rectifying your issue.

Excellent free scenery! The only issue with it is you have to set objects settings to high, not just medium to see the jetways. I can't do this on my pc as it brings frames way down. Medium setting works fine at every other airport using SAM, so would be nice if this could be fixed in the future.

Response from the author:

The scenery was not made for any other settings other than high and above. It simply takes way too much time to setup a scenery for each object setting. I only use High, so the scenery was released with this.

Great scenery, especially with winter and summer options. However, I got no lights for runway 31 and 13, PAPI, leading lights and center line lights. Runway 18 works just fine, however, no PAPI for runway 36. Is this me or it's a known issues? In my xp11 default CYWG scenery, I got no PAPI light for runway 31 as well. 

Overall, great job! Thank you so much for bring CYWG to XP11! 


Response from the author:

The lighting is configured as YWG is in real life as of the release date.

Please do not compare add-on scenery to gateway airports (default) as gateway airports have little to no equipment accuracy. The default YWG is wrong.
