Toronto’s Lester B.
Pearson International Airport is the largest and busiest in Canada. It serves
the city of Toronto, Ontario, and its metropolitan area. CYYZ is also Canada’s
main international gateway offering nonstop flights to every continent. CYYZ is
Air Canada’s home and main hub. Canada’s flag carrier offers service from
Toronto to almost every major city in Canada and the US. It also serves every
major city Latin America, Europe and Southeast Asia. CYYZ also welcomes most
major airlines from countries around the world.
Toronto – Pearson, as it is best known, has undergone a complete transformation
over the last decade. From the complete renovation of terminal 3 to the entrance
in operation of the brand new Terminal 1 still under construction, CYYZ has most
definitely been updated for the 21st century. The interior passenger areas have
been designed to offer ample room and plenty of natural light while the exterior
reflects the modern qualities and comforts of the facilities. There can be no
doubt that CYYZ’s new terminal 1 is amongst the most passenger friendly and
esthetically pleasing facilities of its kind anywhere in the world.
Our CYYZ, Toronto – Pearson International Airport scenery is the most current,
detailed and complete rendition of this important facility for the Microsoft
Flight Simulator. As usual, we offer it in two individually developed and
formatted versions, one for FS2004 and another for FSX. The scenery includes
detailed models of the two terminals in operation today. We also rendered the
hotel located at terminal 3 and the people mover connecting the two terminals.
The air traffic control tower and all maintenance, cargo and general aviation
facilities are also included. As usual, we peeked a few months into the future
and included terminal 1’s third pier currently under construction. Texturing of
the most visible portions of all structures was matched as closely as possible
to real life in order to convey the actual look and feel of the airport. Our
texturing technique enables us to optimize the image resolution while minimizing
the number of texture files needed thus optimizing the sceneries performance.
In our scenery, each runway is accurately located. The latitude-longitude
coordinates of each runway threshold matches -within on ten thousands of one
degree- the values obtained from publically available official sources. Each
runway is also equipped with a full set of guidance lights and radio-aid
antennas for the most realistic approaches possible under instrument flight
conditions. For the same reason we have included realistic ground textures
depicting seasonal changes for the area in the immediate vicinity of the
airport. The ground textures were fitted to match the accurately located runways
and colored to match the palette of the surrounding terrain as closely as
possible. The taxiway complex was then laid out to match the underlying ground
textures. Taxiway signs were relocated or added to match the taxiways and
facilitate taxiing in the simulator environment. Animated hold-short lights were
added at every taxiway/runway intersection.
Finally, we customized the AI traffic mapping file to fit real operations at
CYYZ, particularly airline gate and cargo parking spot location and orientation.
Parking spots were customized to fit various aircraft models and sizes according
to the most commonly used equipment for each airline and each gate. Each gate is
accurately laid out and numbered. A static set of service vehicles and a parking
alignment aid fixture was added to each airline gate.
Please notice that, due to its evolving status, the passenger facilities located
south of terminal 1 were omitted. We plan to update our scenery as this area is
re-developed and a more permanent layout becomes available.
Custom-made, optimized Gmax models of the three terminals, air traffic control
tower, and all aircraft maintenance cargo and general aviation facilities
Custom-made, optimized textures for all Gmax generated buildings. In the FSX
version, reflective effects were used in the textures of all major buildings.
Custom-made, high-resolution photo real ground textures in and around the
airport depicting seasonal changes
Accurate runway and taxiway layouts, including detailed markings and signs
Custom-made, basic AI mapping file including realistic gate and parking spot
* AI parking spots were fitted to accommodate specific aircraft models
(including default MSFS aircraft) and we cannot guarantee that they will
accommodate your favorite AI models. Customization and tweaking of the AI
mapping file will most likely be necessary. Most gates were assigned to airlines
operating at CYYZ in the most accurate configuration possible based on
information available to the public. Parking spot specs and gate assignments are
available in the enclosed documentation.
