CYYZ – Toronto Pearson

CYYZ Toronto Pearson Airport
By: International Scenery Development Group (ISDG)
v1.01 – Dec 07, 2013 – Mostly Done Release

Preamble:

This is a generally stable build with no library conflicts; and all areas should be drivable and flyable. The ILS may be a fraction off due to repositioning of the runways to their orthophoto corrected locations, and verified with another 3rd party. It is also currently lacking ATC taxi-flow.

However, these omissions are not “showstoppers” per se; and those of you who have today off, can spend their day soaring above the skies of Toronto.!

__________________________________________________________

General Features:

- Photorealistic terrain at 30cm/pix resolution as per the USGS
- Proper Taxi Signage (was never there in any previous version of the CYYZ apt.dat it would seem)
- Recent CAP CYYZ Charts (SIDs/STARs/RWY Approaches)
- Repositioned most field objects to match the orthos, accurate within 15 cm +/-
- Fixed runway markings, blastpads, and the like to reflect reality
- Gritty ground and orthophoto texture support
- Replacement Urban textures (experimental – see above)
- Replacement Glideslope towers
- Runway Stop Bar /  Guard Lighting System (this is for YYZatcboy Joe Posted Image How’s this for accuracy! )
Each runway entrance is protected by a stop bar consisting of red in-set lights located at all taxi holding positions.
This is the runway warning/occupancy indicator system in-use in Toronto, and will be familiar to most heavy metal pilots.
- Build-out of industrial parks, Eglinton Ave E, Airport Road, Dixie Road, Brittania, Dixon Road, and the Hotel Strip
- Various “Easter Eggs” with more to come in subsequent releases. (See if you can find the Tim Horton’s Coffee Shop!)

Notes on the Taxiways:

There are two versions of the taxiways included in this package.

1. Normal taxiways shown (regular asphalt, visible, drivable)
2. Hidden taxiways (regular asphalt, not shown, but still drivable)

- You can also turn off the taxiways (hide/show) by replacing the “.POL”files located in the “orthophotos/” directory. This will give the same effect as in our CYTZ Package; whereas the taxiways are only drawn as per the ortho, but with visible (XP generated) centre, edge, and-hold-line markings.

- Assuming you have the VRAM to run in extreme (native texture) resolution, you can take advantage of the full photo-realistic ground effect.

- Simply copy the appropriate files form the “/1 Hide Taxiways/” directory into the parent directory and overwrite the existing POLs.

- To restore the regular (visible) taxiways, simply copy the contents of the “/2 Show Taxiways/” into the parent directory, overwriting the POLs.

Development Cycle:

Taking a page from Intel, this Airport is part of our “tick-tock” development strategy, where we initially release a GA airport, followed up by a mega-airport in the same region. Examples are:

YSCN Camden GA (tick)
YSSY Sydney Intl. (tock)

YPPF Parafield GA (tick)
YPAD Adelaide Intl. (tock)

CYTZ Toronto Island GA (tick)
CYYZ Toronto Pearson Intl. (tock)

This way, we end up satisfying both the General Aviation flyers, as well as the Heavy Metal fliers for the same region.
