KHIO Portland-Hillsboro Airport Rework

Just wanted to share my mostly-correct update for KHIO Portland-Hillsboro airport.

  • Adds missing runway 13L/31R
  • Adds all missing taxiways and correct naming
  • Adds realistic aircraft parking locations
  • Probably a bunch of other fixes

Oh sweet! I fly in sim in this area a lot and had noticed KHIO was quite off. :wink: Will test it out shortly.

Thanks, that is my home airport!

Me too.

It was interesting when the suggested route to 13R involved a drive through the country to the NE part of the field and what appeared to be a dirt road instead of a taxi strip

How do I load it in the simulator?

Hello,
Thank you for your contribution!
Discussion about custom airports goes in Third Party Addon Discussion > Airports. I have moved your topic into that category.

Go to the github link, click the “Get Code” button and then “Download ZIP”. Extract the ZIP, open the “Package” folder, then grab the “airport-khio-hillsboro” folder and paste it in your Community folder, which for me is located at: C:\Users<user>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community

Appreciate it!

Got a chance to take off from freshly-modified KHIO today and my taxi directions actually matched my map in ForeFlight! :smiley: :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

Thanks @FredrichWilhelm!!!
