Microsoft Flight Simulator has ushered in a new era of airport scenery. Airports now resemble their real-world counterparts enough to be easily recognisable, but inaccurate taxiway names, unrealistic signs and objects placed in the middle of taxiways immediately destroy immersion. Black Square’s Real Taxiways has been designed by real-world aviation professionals to fix these problems, resulting in unique airport signage that is functionally identical to its real-world counterparts.
If you’ve ever struggled while navigating the taxiways of an airport in MSFS because online ATC instructions or taxiway diagrams didn’t match the signs around your aircraft, this is the product for you. With Real Taxiways you will be able to navigate airports using real-world taxiway diagrams and online ATC while you learn the nuances of airport surface navigation.
In previous versions of Flight Simulator, only expensive payware scenery could provide you with the quality of airport signage achievable with Real Taxiways. Crowd-sourced alternatives, like scenery gateway systems and freeware downloads lack consistency and coverage, even when professionally moderated, which frequently disappoints real-world pilots. Real Taxiways is a cost effective solution whereby you can have thousands of consistently enhanced airports with features which have never been seen before for the cost of a single payware airport.
Real Taxiways is extremely frame rate friendly - you won't experience any performance penalty at all!
You can exclude any airport (or airports) from your Real Taxiways installation if you wish, avoiding conflicts with freeware, payware and World Update airports.
