Today, I would like to present my first steps in publishing one of my airports here in the forum. I was born in Mönchengladbach, Germany which is in the Rhine-Ruhr-Area western of Düsseldorf and north of Cologne. In the city a large GA airport exists which I have used as inspiration. They write, they are the 2nd biggest GA airport in Germany with only Frankfurt being bigger in that regard. Something to be proud of . I located the airport to MG and started with a GA regional airport. I tried to keep my design a bit close to the original. Some things I cannot do as we do not have hangars which are there, but I try to place buildings at locations where a hangar would be. The original is described as GA airport with commercial flights on demand. There is a refueling service established.
Mind the main building being separated from the commercial stands. You enter the airport through the central doors, walk up to the information desk and get your ticket at one of the currently 3 desks. After checking in, the PAX will go to security and walk up to the departures building A in the southwest corner. Of the 6 stands there, 4 are already converted to commercial use from an old hangar building and modernized from scratch. The corresponding building houses toilets, a staff room with exec suite and has a small café to quench the thirst of the waiting PAX. Outside, there is another building housing staff like janitors, ramp agents and techs. AVGas100LL service has already established. JetFuelA1 has been procured and proper service buildings are to be built soon.
My closest goals are to connect the other 2 small stands at the commercial terminal A to commercial stands to get a steady income while not overloading my airport yet. Also, JetFuelA1 services will be established.
Middle-term goals would be expanding and plopping down some medium stands - maybe as remote ones first, since I have no expanded terminal yet. Also, I would like to have baggage handling enabled for stands A1 to A6 to offer premium services for my flights.
In the long run, I would like to have a second terminal with own runways doing the medium flights and securing a metro access.
I will expand a bit and post new pictures when I get to the right point. Any comments on my design? I could use every bit of help or advice.
