Microsoft Flight Simulator has ushered in a new era of airport scenery. Airports now resemble their real-world counterparts enough to be easily recognisable, but inaccurate taxiway names, unrealistic signs and objects placed in the middle of taxiways immediately destroy immersion. Black Square’s Real Taxiways has been designed by real-world aviation professionals to fix these problems and enhance many more aspects of default MSFS airports, resulting in unique airports that are functionally identical to their real-world counterparts.

If you’ve ever struggled while navigating the taxiways of an airport in MSFS because ATC instructions or taxiway diagrams didn’t match the signs around your aircraft, this is the product for you. With Real Taxiways you will be able to navigate airports using real-world taxiway diagrams, online ATC or default ATC, and AI aircraft will follow the same instructions too.

In previous versions of Flight Simulator, only expensive payware scenery could compare to the quality achievable with Real Taxiways. Crowd-sourced alternatives, like scenery gateway systems, lack consistency and coverage, even when professionally moderated, which frequently disappoints real-world pilots. Real Taxiways is a cost effective solution whereby you can have thousands of consistently enhanced airports with features which have never been seen before for the cost of a single payware airport.

Real Taxiways is extremely frame rate friendly - you won't experience any performance penalty at all!

For pilots and aspiring pilots

Real Taxiways aims to provide the best airport operations environment for virtual pilots looking to improve their proficiency, and for aspiring pilots learning the challenges of ground operations for the first time, by simulating the accurate placement of taxiway signs of all types and sizes that would reasonably be found at real airports around the world.
 
Users should find that airports covered by Real Taxiways regions are now navigable via real-world airport diagrams, the signs on the ground, most external moving-map programs and ATC instructions.


Truly unique experiences

In the real world, no two airports are the same. Default airports in Flight Simulator have always been too rigid and identical, and add-on airports lack the consistency of the real world. Each Real Taxiways airport has a 'personality' generated for it, which dictates sign size, type, placement and variations used, as well as other parameters. Since these variations are applied on a runway-by-runway basis, there are so many possible combinations that almost every airport feels unique. This 'personality' may even vary from one side of the airport to another.


Coverage

The whole United States area, including Alaska and Hawaii, is covered by this add-on, but not the protectorates and outlying islands.


Class C & D airports

Class C and D airports include all towered airports in the United States except the 37 largest, which are Class B airports. Class C and D airports range in size from local airfields with a single runway, to large regional airports with expansive terminals, runways, and services which serve some of the largest population centres in North America; this is around 450 airports.
