Takeoff from Parking Area - Useful data

Recommended Posts

I can't recall when or where, but the question was asked recently concerning "takeoff from parking area", specifically at which airbases the AI would be placed nearby to the player aircraft. For help with mission designing, I did some investigation, here are the results. I also measured the AI taxi times (to nearest 30 sec) from the parking area to the start of their takeoff, it ranges from 2m00 for Saki to a massive 10m00 for Simpheropol :o .

Taxi times and proximity to AI planes might differ if you change the take off direction and/or your parking position.


# Change the wind direction (head wind) to control the take off direction. Use windspeeds >15knt/s to achieve this. Note that this doesn't work on one or two airfields (forgot which)

# Place statics on parking positions to control your own. Note that your plane will explode upon game entry if all parking positions are taken.
