Our version of KIAH is detailed and accurate, incorporating all recent changes and representing the airport as it exists today. Each of the five terminals is rendered with unprecedented level of detail. Special attention was paid to the accurate layout of aircraft parking positions and boarding gates at each terminal. All boarding gates are equipped with customized static jetways properly numbered and labeled with the logo of the airline that uses the gate in real life. Each jetway is unique and configured to fit the available space and accommodate typical aircraft using each gate in real life. Whenever possible, a simple alignment aid device is provided to facilitate taxiing to the gate.

Most of the general aviation, cargo and maintenance facilities are also rendered accurately, including the air traffic control tower and the newly added fire stations. All runways are positioned to match the data contained in official aviation data thus enabling CAT III instrument approaches to be completed as published. Detailed, realistic and accurately positioned approach lighting systems are provided for all runways. All taxiways are laid out accurately according to high-resolution satellite images used as replacement terrain textures. Runway and taxiway signs are positioned to facilitate ground operations in the flight simulator environment, including flashing lights and ground markings at all runway/taxiway intersections. Realistic night lighting and ramp illumination effects are used throughout the airport.

Optimized 3D models were created for each and every structure included in the scenery. Continuously increasing levels of model optimization are enabling the use of a larger number of highly detailed models in order to accurately represent very complex mega-airports with minimal graphic display performance impact. Using BluePrint’s unique technique, ultra-high resolution textures including transparency and reflection effects were applied to each 3D model in order to enhance their level of detail and accuracy. A significant fraction of the general aviation and aircraft maintenance hangars are fully three-dimensional, open and able to house size-appropriate aircraft models (including AI). Custom made trees and static vehicles are positioned throughout the airport to enhance the look and feel of the environment.

Advanced, custom-made mapping files are designed to accommodate the most realistic AI traffic configuration possible. All runways and taxiways are properly labeled to enable accurate taxiing throughout the airport. Each and every gate is properly formatted to accommodate the airline and aircraft type that use it in real life. An AI mapping file containing no airline gate assignments that enables the use of generic or default traffic is provided as an option to be selected during installation of the scenery.

Design Considerations:

  • KIAH is Continental Airlines home airport and, along with Newark’s Liberty airport, the backbone of their route network. Continental occupies four of the five terminals and the airline’s presence is an integral part of the airport’s identity. The imminent disappearance of the Continental Airlines brand and its replacement by the well-established United Airlines name will have a huge impact on the airport that cannot be ignored. Consequently, and as it is customary of BluePrint sceneries, our rendition of KIAH offers the opportunity to experience the “New” airport a few months ahead of the change taking place in real life. As it was the case with Eastern, PanAm and TWA, a brand that has been part of aviation history in the United States will disappear at least for the foreseeable future. The loss will be offset by the expectation of a prosperous and exciting future for the new United Airlines while Continental’s legacy lives on at IAH as Eastern’s does at MIA and PanAm’s and TWA’s do at JFK.
  • Our ability to accurately reproduce the various taxiway bridges that exist at IAH is limited by our ability to manipulate terrain elevation with the level of detail needed to create the necessary terrain gaps. Consequently, 3D bridges are not included in our scenery.

Scenery Features:

  • Custom-made, optimized Gmax models of the entire facility including five terminals, the elevated inter-terminal tram, the air traffic control tower, and all significant general aviation, aircraft maintenance and cargo facilities within the field’s boundary
  • Custom-made, high-resolution textures for all Gmax generated models including transparency effects
  • Custom-made, high-resolution photo real ground textures displaying seasonal changes and carefully blended with the surrounding terrain (A higher resolution texture set is available for the FSX version. It can be downloaded here.)
  • Accurate runway and taxiway layout, including detailed markings and signs
  • Realistic taxiway and ramp markings and ramp illumination effects
  • Two levels of scenery complexity and detail:
  • NORMAL complexity includes terrain texturing, autogen vegetation, airport layout with taxiway signs and basic navigation equipment models (actual localizer and glide slope radio signals are available regardless of the scenery complexity setting), most buildings within the field’s boundaries including the terminals, the air traffic control towers and cargo and maintenance facilities
  • VERY DENSE complexity adds detailed instrument approach lighting system models, animated runway intersection lighting and static ramp vehicles (optional)
  • Advanced, custom-made AI mapping file including realistic gate and parking spot layout and airline gate assignments*. A basic AI mapping file without gate assignments is also available as an option**

* Because the United Airlines – Continental Airlines merger appears on track and it is expected to be consummated in the very near future, all Continental gates have been branded with the new United Airlines logo and assigned the airline codes COA and UAL. The current United Airlines gates in terminal A are not included. The AI traffic mapping file and gate branding will be updated to accommodate any unexpected change and published in the Downloads section of this web site.

** AI parking spots were fitted to accommodate specific aircraft models (including default MSFS aircraft) and we cannot guarantee that they will accommodate your favorite AI models. Customization and tweaking of the AI mapping file will most likely be necessary. Most gates were assigned to airlines operating at KIAH in the most accurate configuration possible based on information available to the public. Parking spot specs and gate assignments are available in the enclosed documentation.

Customer Reviews
TAXI2GATE - KMCO ORLANDO INTL FSX
Victor Cabrales
I live very close to KMCO and I often go there to do some plane spotting. I have downloaded this add on for my FSX:SE and I have to honestly say this is the best add on I have downloaded in a very long time. The level of detail on this scenery is amazing. I am very happy with my purchase. The level of realism to the surrounding area, taxiways, runways, jetways etc is amazing. They even got the B-52 bomber at the B52 Memorial park at the beginning of Rwy 18L. You will love this add on scenery. One of the best works by Taxi2gate for sure.

Best helicopter I've bought so far! Very responsive in flight and a lot of different versions.
AREZONE - PILATUS PC12-47B PRATT & WHITNEY PT6A-67B HQ SOUNDSET FSX P3D
John Haley
Overall a really nice job. Here are my two small criticisms from using a couple of your sets. You have added ambient aircraft sound of other aircraft. Its a bit unusual when you're the only other aircraft at a remote airport. When the aircraft systems are shut down, there is some type of clicking sound which is more pronounced when you are outside the aircraft, it sounds like someone failing in multiple attempts to start a lighter. Overall, a pretty good job.

Very nice aircraft to land on short runways and hard approaches. Recommended
MK-STUDIOS - TENERIFE VOL.1 FSX P3D
Viktor Meszaros
MK Studios I think you did an amazing job with this scenery ! Even the surrounding area is modelled which is absolutely astonishing ! The performace is really great upon approach and landing and to top that with the SODE jetways and the VDGS system is awesome. I must add I'm on P3D v3 still and it is working like a charm on that as well. Well done gentlemen.

Superb small airport and hard approach. 5/5 stars, totally recommended if you love a challenge for the landing.
AEROSOFT - LUKLA X MOUNT EVEREST FSX P3D
L J Calderon Urosa
After installing the product with P3D V4.1 it crashes from time to time to the desktop when I use the Twin Otter. Not recommended if you own that combination of Aircraft/Airpor-
t for P3D V4. Wait for the new version as this version is unstable. Save the 20USD. I am giving a 2 star because this product should not be offered to P3D V4 users as its faulty causing random CTD´s. The airport is old and dated. Not worth the retail price. On the other hand, its one of my favorite difficult approaches, and I will wait for the new release as its a must have airport for me. Really hope that Aerosoft solves this CTD issue at least for current users.
MK-STUDIOS - FUERTEVENTURA 2017 FSX P3D
Ken McVie
I initially had major elevation problems with this airport not displaying properly in my FSX:SE. However, I discovered that legacy registry files associated with this airport had not been removed properly when I had uninstalled it and re-installed it and it was those files that caused the problems. I ran an payware system cleaner from IOBit and the freeware Revo Uninstaller to detect and then remove those legacy install files that caused the problem. Fuerte is now installed beautifully on my FSX:SE and looks stunning (including the surrounding scenery and terrain). Ma-
teusz from MK Studios did offer to help but his help was not needed in the end as I managed to figure out the problem myself.
FSXCENERY - KTLH TALLAHASSEE FSX P3D
Stephen Holden
KTLH is the airport where I first took flying lessons in an old Cessna 150, and even though I have not been back there since 1993, it remains near and dear to my heart. I can't attest to the accuracy of various structures, because so much has changed over the years. But it's otherwise very recognizable and works acceptably, performance-wis-
e, on my gaming computer. I use Lockheed P3D version 3.4 with a multitude of aircraft and sceneries, including Orbx and ActiveSky 2016. Critic-
isms are: only one season is represented (older airports from this developer have not been updated to provide this; it is good to see newer airport products having multiple seasons), and while I never use avatar mode to walk around outside the simulated aircraft, I did notice that the developer re-uses highway signs from other areas of the country (I've seen this on some of their other airports too, but to me it is a minor gripe). I would suggest making the labels more blurry or otherwise more generic-looking-
. For the price (and the cause that is getting funded by the proceeds) it remains a favorite of mine.
