Modify Existing Airports Or Create New Ones!
|Airport Facilitator X - Control, Modify, and Create New Destinations|
AFX is a powerful airport editor for FS2004 and FSX for both novice and expert Flight Simulator users. You can easily modify any of Flight Simulator airports, convert your favorite AFCADs to FSX and enhace them with FSX-specific features, or even design a new airport from scratch.
AFX allows you to add, modify, or remove runways, taxiways, and paths, taxiway signs, aprons, start location, navaids, parking spots and many more airport features.
For FSX airports, it can add fences, moving jetways, vehicle links and parking spots. The utility also gives you access to FSX-specific runway markings and other attributes.
Can import both stock and add-on FSX and FS2004 airports in the BGL format.
|Flight Simulator Integration|
Connects to FS2004 and FSX using a special AFX module (included).
Allows you to to see the airport you are editing and all editing actions LIVE in Flight Simulator. This allows very easy positioning of airport elements relative to buildings, terrain features and other aspects of the scenery.
When the mouse is inside the AFX window, a second mouse pointer shows the corresponding location directly in Flight Simulator.
Reloading of scenery in FS can be triggered directly from AFX.
Displays the plane position in the AFX window.
Can lock the viewpoint in the AFX window to the plane location.
