Request MPTO Panama Tocumen International Airport

PTY/MPTO is an enormous omission from the sim, ranked on 2019 #9 on the busiest airports in the sub-continent.

UPDATE: Today I was doing VFR around Bahia de Panamá and noticed in the distance the Tocumen runway as lighted… I tuned ILS 03 R and to my surprise I got a live localizer, here is me landing on the otherwise bare runway:

I also noticed that I can plan from/to the airport… may be due to the updated Navigraph package?

I guess this satisfies the last poster’s grievance… now is this a request to FIX MPTO?

WILL BE A PLEASRUE TO HELP YOU GET LISTENED, BUDDY!!! Tocumen it’s my favorite airport. IF DEVELOPERS DOESN’T FIX THIS AND DOESN’T MAKE A VERY DETAILED TOCUMEN AIRPORT. I WILL DEMAND A REFUND!!! I give them a year.

I am just as disappointed, I hope Asobo and Microsoft can include it soon. In the same way, improve the details of the city, since some buildings are missing …

I just wanted to fly around Tocumen airport to see how did Asobo modeled it, but I was surprised that they didn’t include it. The new terminal building is partly modeled and the first terminal, too. It is incredible that one of the top busiest airports in the region is missing. Need to be included in the next patches.

How can the HUB of the Americas (Tocumen) doesn’t even exist in the simulator? Very shameful and un expected to see that no attention was given regardless Copa Airlines (Highly recognized airline) operate and use it as a hub doesn’t even exist.

We are two months after the game’s release. Any updates on Asobo adding MPTO?

if you look at the satellite imagery on Bing Maps, it’s pretty clear why the AI can’t recreate the airport, it’s covered by clouds.
As with all the other things; file a ticket on Zendesk, and it might be added in a future world update.

it’s not a conspiracy, the scenery is 99,9% autogenerated by AI.

I suspected the reason was something like this, nobody has claimed this to be a conspiracy (?).
This thread is simply a request for the content to be implemented through the Asobo process of Forum Upvote.
So, if you haven’t already, please do!

The way to get airports added is by reporting the missing ones to Zendesk, if the only way to get airports into the game was to get people to vote on them here in the forums, this place would become a huge mess really fast.

also, the conspiracy theory part was aimed at the people above who post in all caps, and call it ‘very shameful’, and demand a refund if it’s not added within a year.

I really don’t want to distract the conversation from the subject at hand.
That said, the upvote mechanism on this official Wishlist channel, with the aiport and scenery tags applied precisely for this purpose. I did not not come up with it.

Again, I kindly ask to keep on subject to getting as many votes as we can to speed up having MPTO implemented in the base game.

Sorry, but no. The ‘Wishlist’ section is intended for missing features.

A missing airport, or incorrect approaches are not feature requests, but they are bugs, and should be reported to Zendesk.

We don’t need this forum section to have 100’s of requests for individual airport fixes, where people are competing for votes.

edit: you can also add it to this thread, it’s where someone is collecting all airport fix requests that have been posted to Zendesk.
I’m pretty sure MPTO is already on this list.

So it appears we now have a [broken] MPTO back in the sim:


It has no gates and the taxiways are disconnected, but it appears to be flyable and programmable, at least with the latest Navigraph Add-on.

The pitch/yaw you see when I overfly the piano keys is the AP being disconnected from the LOC/GS, it took me a couple of seconds to tame that beast.

Just landed an A320 at this enormous international airport and was told by ATC to exit next taxiway, except…

I’d like to have the scenery. Went to https://fsx-p3dscenerybuilders.blogspot.com/2020/11/mpto-tocumen-int-v30-msfs.html, then to https://mega.nz/file/R58SUJLC#UZf5DgLScsR8EaEL_Vn637ShT8L4xi1l9uyQAQ17sic, and this is the message I get:

Is there any other way to download it?

You may want to repost the question on this thread or ask @ferangel2000 directly.
