A Stand, also referred to as a Gate, is a place-able structure that allows for the storage and servicing of planes by the airport. They can be bought in a variety of sizes.

General Information[edit | edit source]

Stands are only required to be attached to the terminal building if they are servicing commercial planes (sometimes with the use of jetways) and are not a remote stand, added to the default branch in the One Year Anniversary update. General Aviation (GA) planes do not need to be serviced in a stand attached to the terminal building.

Facilitation[edit | edit source]

Stands facilitate the

  • Unboarding;
  • Unloading (baggage if enabled);
  • Refueling (if requested and enabled);
  • Deicing (if requested and enabled);
  • Servicing (if requested and enabled);
  • Catering (if requested and enabled);
  • Loading (baggage);
  • Boarding;
  • Pushback (if plane is medium or large);

of their associated plane. If an aircraft specifies its request of any of the request-able services, you shall be paid for the use of each of the said request-able services.

Sizing[edit | edit source]

Three gates sizes are available.

Small gates accommodate General Aviation and small commercial flights. They do not have a taxiway - 5X7.

Medium gates accommodate medium commercial flights. They do have a taxiway - 10X10.

Large gates accommodate large commercial flights. They do have a taxiway - 16X16.

Servicing[edit | edit source]

All stands require a service road connection to deliver services. If enabled, GA aircraft may request refuelling. Fuel is sent in a fuel truck to the gate.

Commercial flights can also (if enabled in Operations) accept baggage. A baggage truck will move bags to and from the aircraft. The stand should be close to a fuel depot and baggage bay so that turnarounds are quick and efficient.

Personnel[edit | edit source]

The small stands use 2 ramp agents, the medium stands use 4 ramp employees and the large stands use 6 ramp agents to service aircraft.


Remote Stands[edit | edit source]

Remote stands were added in the One Year Anniversary update and can allow commercial flights to not be next to the terminal.

Creating a Remote Stand[edit | edit source]

  1. Place a stand (any size, type, etc) away from any terminals.
  2. Connect with service road to normal utilities and terminal exit with boarding desk. Connect the taxiways and runway(s) as usual.
  3. At terminal exit, place a shuttle bus stop and connect it to the stand. Note: You do not need a shuttle bus stop at the stands, the bus will park in the stand, much like other service vehicles
  4. Place a service car stop next to the terminal, and connect it to the stand as well. These are required so that ramp agents can get to the stand for turnaround services.
  5. In Economy -> Procurement, purchase an airside shuttle bus and service car. Ensure you have a vehicle depot/parking lot for this.
  6. If it is a medium or larger stand, do not forget a pushback and stairway vehicle!
  7. You now have a remote stand ready!

TIP: Flights scheduled at remote stands will be given 45 extra minutes in the flight planner, to account for added travel times.
