Just Flight Announces Real Taxiways United States for MSFS

Just Flight Real Taxiways Us (3)

Just Flight has announced a new series of products called Real Taxiways for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Real Taxiways will add real-world taxiway signage to default airports in the simulator, which will add more realism at those locations. The series will initially start in the United States with Class C and D airports.

Upon installation, Real Taxiways for Microsoft Flight Simulator will add a number of improvements to default airports’ signage. The first improvement will be the fact that real-world taxiways names will be accurate across each airport and also located in the correct place. In addition, sign sizes will also be adjusted to better match the real-world counterpart. Speaking of which, if you find it hard to read the signs in the simulator whilst using VR, Just Flight say that you can optionally adjust the signage size to your preference to make them easier to read.

Just Flight also says that Real Taxiways will remove any signs and lights that currently obstruct taxiways, runways and ramps. Furthermore, signs can now be double-sided, painted lines at airports are now corrected and runways entry lights are enhanced at large airports.

Real Taxiways has been described as a “cost-effective” solution to fixing thousands of airports with a single tool and utility that will keep your airports consistent in your simulator.

Just Flight says that Real Taxiways United States Class C and D Airports will be coming soon. However, you can check out the product page for even more information and also sign up for their mailing list to stay up-to-date.
