    Sloped Runaways, Sloped Aprons and AI

    I have been reading into the limitations of making an AI behave correctly in sloped runways/aprons. As far as I understand, in P3D (and FSX) the AI follow the reference altitude and not the current terrain altitude. Is this correct? Also, what happens with sloped flatten polygons in airports...

    P3D v3 Photorico TJPS update for 2019 (Freeware as usual)
