The EGLC Orbx scenery seems to miss ground services such as ramps and push back services. Are there any plans to address this? Thanks!

Hi,

 

We're adding additional ground services in an update which will be available soon.

Can we get some information about when that update will be available?

 

I bought EGLC a few days ago and there are still no pushback tugs at the departure gates for passenger planes.

EGLC has no pushback in real life I believe.

Here is an extract from Vatsim regarding EGLC:

Located 6nm east of London, London City airport serves the financial district - handling 2.8 million passengers annually. In order to negotiate the limited space and large buildings nearby - the runway features the steepest glideslope in the UK, which together with a 1500m runway creates a challenging approach for pilots of all aircraft.

Neighbourhood pressures together with the unique approach requirements severly limit the aircraft types which can operate into the airport - which also requires specifically qualified crews in order to ensure safe operations.

All of the stands face nose out - which negates the need for pushback from the terminal. The airport also features a jet centre at the western end - this plays host to the numerous business jets which visit the airport. Operations face restricted hours in a week - and the weekend sees the airport closingdown for 24 from the middle of Saturday onwards.

Regarding the update. EGLC was updated in July. The notice of an update being done was in January. Version 1.2.0. Regarding the parking I will need to ask @Ed Correia for comment.
