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, resulting in unique airport signage that is functionally identical to its real-world counterparts.

If you’ve ever struggled while navigating the taxiways of an airport in MSFS because online 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 and online ATC while you learn the nuances of airport surface navigation.

In previous versions of Flight Simulator, only expensive payware scenery could provide you with the quality of airport signage achievable with Real Taxiways. Crowd-sourced alternatives, like scenery gateway systems and freeware downloads 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!

You can exclude any airport (or airports) from your Real Taxiways installation if you wish, avoiding conflicts with freeware, payware and World Update airports.

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 online ATC instructions.


Truly unique experiences

In the real world, no two airports are the same. Default airport signage in Flight Simulator has always been too rigid and uniform, yet 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.


Military airfields

The United States contains more than 5,000 military installations, several hundred of which play host to helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, and VTOL-craft.  These include Air Force Bases, Army Air Bases, Naval Air Stations, Coast Guard Stations, Marine Corps Air Stations, and various reserve bases.  Many of these airports represent some of the largest in the United States, and the world.  Over 100 of these locations are featured in this version of Real Taxiways.
