INTRODUCTION TO CHICAGO MIDWAY AIRPORT - KMDW

Chicago Midway airport is the second largest airport serving the Chicago area, and is located in the midwestern state of Illinois, USA. Originally named Chicago Air Park, it was originally built in 1923. In July 1949, the airport was renamed after the World War II battle of Midway . 

Midway airport covers one square mile ( one whole city block), and has five runways. Midway is tightly surrounded by buildings and other residential development on all four sides, so the landing thresholds of the runways are displaced to provide obstacle clearance. A boundary wall surrounds the whole one square mile of airport from the adjacent streets and houses, which are just a few yards from the main runways. 

This makes Midway airport a challenging airport to fly into and take off from, where piloting skills have to be precise and there is no room for error. Larger aircraft like the Boeing 747 or 787 do not fly from this airport. 

It is a major hub for Southwest airlines,  so the main Commercial aircraft to fly out of this airport is the Boeing 737. 

=======================================================================================

Default MSFS2020 only showed this as very drab , generic airport, even though this is the second busiest airport in Chicago, and is great fun to fly out of and land into, because of how landlocked it is on all 4 sides. 

I have used the SDK to edit the default airport and really bring it to life. 

Main Features  :

1. Properly named amd numbered Terminals and Gates, with Apron markings for all gates, making it easier to taxi to the right gate.  Pilots, tarmac workers are at various locations, working or walking around the aprons, to add a sense of incredible realism. 

2. Hand crafted aprons, taxiways, runway textures, specially matched to actual photographs of airports. The control tower is scaled down from the oversized generic one, and look a bit more like the actual control tower at Midway. 

3. The roads around the airport have been lit up and have moving traffic, including cars, buses, to recreate how it feels like when coming in to land or just after taking off and clearing the airport boundary. Traffic patterns are also more fun! 

4. Amazing new night lighting that adds an atmospheric touch to flying at night. Lit up concourses, aprons, and taxiway paths add to the realism. 

5. All taxiways have their original names, based on the actual Airport diagram.

6. KMDW Airport Diagram included as a pdf file, to navigate your way around the aprons/ concourses and taxiways , in real life!

7. All the buildings, parking lots have been lovingly recreated with incredible detail, including full parking lots, fences of different types, security gates, airport vehicles, all based on actual satellite photos of KMDW , and my personal visits around the airport ( since i live in the Chicago area, minutes from the airport. 

Limitations : 

1. I have yet to learn how to create 3d buildings in blender, so the buildings are the closes approximation in shape and size, but not the exact, similar as the ones at KMDW . Hopefull in a future upgrade i will be able to do that.

2.  The runways are a few feet lower than the actual airport elevation of 620 feet. All runways have a slight slope from the western edge, sloping down about 9 feet to the Eastern edge. I could not recreate it in the SDK ( as of yet) . But while flying, you will barely tell the difference. 

3. I was not able to set it up so that all GA aircraft use Runway 31 Left ( which they do in real life). While using the SDK, there does not seem to be anyway of having GA aircraft avoid the very large runways meant for Commercial airliners only. 

4. I could not show actual Southwest Boeing 737 AI traffic, as this feature does not seem to be able to be set up using the SDK. So you will just see a mix of generic AI traffic at the gates.

hi i love the mesh but Pokhara and the surrounding mountains has a lot of bugs, airport surfaces has wrong elevation and Mt fishtail and the annapurna range completely disappears if flown near.

Purchased it on his store. A great rendition of an interesting Aussie airport. Really captures the character and essence of the region. Can't beat the price, either.

Beautiful scenery with lots of details. Textures and model details are excellent.

Really fun little jet. Handles really nicely and a joy to fly. Become one of my main choices. It takes a little bit of adjusting to the landing and there seems to be quite a bit of bounce while slowing and you have breaks but not parking breaks. Currently the oxygen system also doesn't work. The gage is there but you can't turn it on or off which yes it's more a candy feature but given how few switches there are I really would love to see that added. The screen has 3 options of display, which show smoke status, G force and helps keep heading in aerobatics. I have bought way to many planes for this simulator and for the cost this is a must buy in my opinion and one of the coolest planes. I also find it different enough to the Cri Cri that I wouldn't say if already have that not to get this. You will have a blast if pick this up! Keep up the great work Y-sim and I look forward to seeing what the updates and future products bring to the simulator!

2 things please, Can you please add some wing flex? Can you please let livery creators be able to paint the winglets? Thank you, other than that it's great!

This is a must have if you love Cargo flights, UPS especially in this case. Quality is as good as their KMEM for FedEx. What I love about FSDT, is that they always add fun stuff! KMEM was the fully designed Tower; For KSDF, something took me by surprise with GSX: whenever you unload cargo (or load) instead of having the default trucks to pick it up, you have a UPS guy that will take your cargo and place it at the storage next to it! Really fun touch, makes cargo flights more fun.

This scenery is very worth the price of 12 euro, New york have tons of detail building and airports, the image scenery that it comes with is great and cover so many area, The image scenery covers all of the north east scenery so if you wanna to Denver then this is the scenery for you, But it only comes with New york city airports so keep that in mind, overall i would give this scenery a 5/5 star

Beautiful model, looks great. Flight dynamics are fair for the price, but leave one wanting more.

Yet another great scenery from Flightbeam. FPS is amazing and the airport and it's surroundings make this a great purchase. And I appreciate Flightbeam continuing to support P3D4 users. I will always support FB.
