Two airports at the same place

  • Hello everybody

    I have a problem with two airports that are at the same place. 8|

    These two airports are:
    - Valloire Bonnenuit (France)
    - Glacier Lombard (France)
    These two airports are in the location of Valloire Bonnenuit. So the second one is not at the good place. :cursing:

    The he second airport has a much higher altitude than the first. This is why it appears as a mountain peak, rendering both airports unusable. :huh:
    I delete all the Community file. I tried resetting MSFS then reinstalling it, nothing helps, the second airport is still in the same location. ;(

    How can I eliminate this second airport (Glacier Lombard) and thus be able to use the first airport (Valloire Bonnenuit) again?
    Thank you in advance for your answers!

  • Information on Glacier Lombard should be here https://airportguide.com/airport/info/AG1488#location and Valloire Bonnenuit i here https://airportguide.com/airport/info/AG1519.

    Looking at the information about the two airports shows that

    Glacier Lombard is at 45.108334n 6.322222e

    and Valloire Bonnenuit is at 45.121113n 6.419444e

    Very close, but as far as I can tell, Glacier Lombard is actually on the glacier (as you said), and doesn't appear to have any thing going for it apart from a code.

    Here: https://airportguide.com/searc…Auvergne-Rh%C3%B4ne-Alpes Glacier Lombard is described as an "Altiservice", rather than an airport. Valloire Bonnenuit is shown on a later page as an airport.

    https://2h3jv2garlcn2m3e2digyg…ate.goog/wiki/Altisurface tells us

    "An altisurface , in France, is a mountain airstrip for airplanes other than an altiport .

    An altisurface, unlike an altiport, is not, in the legal sense of the term, an aerodrome . It does not have an ICAO or AITA code , but is instead listed by what Americans call a LID ( locator ident ), in the form LFddnn, ddrepresenting the number of the department where the altisurface is located, and nnits rank in the order of approvals relating to this department."

  • Thank you very much for your well documented answer John! :-)
    It seems to be the fault of the latest MSFS update. :-(
    Friends told me they had the same error: the two airports were, by mistake, superimposed when they are really several km apart. The second airport is moreover only a means of landing on the glacier while the Valloire Bonnenuit airport actually exists (I know it very well IRL)!
    Thanks again for your reply.
    I wish you a nice day. ;-)
