• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

FSX Takeoff on 9, Land on 27

Hello. I am new to ADE and it's a lot of fun to be able to update small airports that will likely not be updated if I do not do it. My home airport, KLAM, is a case in point. However, I cannot figure out why I cannot specify runway 9 as the takeoff runway and its opposite, 27, as the landing runway. This restriction exists at the real airport. I made the appropriate airport setting to specify 9 for takeoff and 27 for landing, and have successfully restricted takeoffs to 9, but the ATC window gives no landing options, 9 or 27. Any advice would be appreciated.

Sorry, AFAIK not possible. You cannot have traffic using a runway in both directions at the same time. You can increase the chances of ATC using runway 27 for landing by deleting the Rwy 9 start location, but if planes land on 27 I assume that takeoffs will also use that end, no matter your runway settings.
I, too wish this functionality existed within FSX/P3D. Mountain Air, North Carolina (2NC0) also uses one runway for takeoff and the opposite for landing as the runway is steeply sloped. I have tried everything I know to make it work to no avail.
Try This, Make a parallel runway same size, name it Rw 27 Left, name orig runway 27 right, make 27R landing only, 9R take off only, link the 2 rws together with no holdsohrts between them then move one runway over the other and move the rw links very close together. I only tested This once on a dirt runway and it appeared to work, Haven't tested the idea to destruction yet.
