CYXE Saskatoon John G. Diefenbaker International Airport (Hand-crafted)

  • Hello all,

    It's been a while since I first posted my alpha version of CYXE, almost a couple of months by now. I just wanted to give an update on progress, as I haven't given an update since the initial launch.

    Lately, I have been tied up with commercial pilot school, thus I haven't had a lot of time to work on this mod. Fortunately, school is almost done for me and I should have plenty of time to work on this mod in the new year. Attached is a recent Blender render photo of the control tower, which I hope to have fully textured at least before the new year.

    My plans for January are to complete the texturing of the tower, terminal and fix the ATC frequencies and any other inconsistencies in MSFS2020 vs real life, as well as hopefully fixing the jetways. After the main priorities, I hope to also add the surrounding area, including both flights school hangars, the Fokker F.28s stored around the airport, and all of the other hangars nearby.

    If you have any suggestions, concerns, knowledge, or reference photos you would like to share, please let me know! I would like to make this a worthy freeware option for simmers, especially those who fly in and out of Saskatoon often.

    Happy Holidays everyone, and all the best in the New Year :)



  • Looking forward to the completion of this airport. Not sure if it's possible, but during your development of the area, is there any way to change how FS recognizes and labels the POI's for the runways? You've probably experienced the issue. The runway directions are reversed. When requesting taxi to 09, it directs you to 27. Not only that, it usually fails to register the takeoff and on occasion the landings as well. Flew sooo many hours only to have them not register flight time in the early release.

    Keep up the good work!
