My first international airport

Posted by Hilsonbergman on 15 February 2020 in English (English)

The first international airport I finished mapping, Yu Hing Shiu Yi International Airport. Comments are welcome.

Location: 26.075, 156.093

Your gates seem a bit too close. You might want to draw some aircraft to test the distance. Apart from that, it does look pretty decent, and I particularly like the small part in between the buildings.

Not bad, but I would extend the runways a bit more. Better too big than too small. Commercial airports should always have contingency measures for heavy military aircraft.

The runways are 4.8km long. At sea level. Why on earth would you want them longer? They are too long as is.

In the real-world they'd be the 10th longest runways in the world. And at sea level.

"Commercial airports should always have contingency measures for heavy military aircraft" ?!

3 Kilometers is a standard for airports

@Marcello I have check the real world gate distance, the gates separation is around 80m. @wangi I have shorten the runway distance

The airport is really great (it may compete with Kuehong's future airport hahaha). It is quite well mapped. How long did it take to make it?

I feel though it is still a bit too large. What destinations is this airport meant to serve? Besides, I will also like for permission to map some Kuehong franchises in the airport.

I am also unsure whether is there a need for the skytrain/people's mover to extend to the ferry terminal. I prefer if there is a shuttle bus service to the terminal instead. Consider having a railway station to serve the cargo terminal as well.

Also, I can see that there is some similarities to Singapore's Changi Airport as well. I also suggest some service roads on the apron.

The skytrain can also just be a loop around the airport.

The gates are a bit long. Over 50m for the gates are too much. The runways shouldn't be longer than 4km under normal conditions. Otherwise it's pretty good.

It seems to me really excellent, with a high level of likelihood, and with excellent proportions.

A single tip regarding the mapping: for the fingers I would not use the "path" tool that does not fall within the standards, but simply rectangles with the "building" tool, as also happens regularly in OSM (see eg the JFK just to say one of all).

It must be thin building rectangles, which can be extensions of the existing building but also autonomous rectangles attached to it, if this simplifies the work.
