Just a little bit of fun for the weekend, but depending on whether you want it to or not, there’s nothing at all stopping it from being one of a number of similar discussion posts. Let’s see what happens, shall we?
Basically, we’ll provide you with a single airport identity – a “hypothetical hub” as per the title – and a small bunch of criteria such as maximum trip length and a type of aircraft. What we want from you is what you’d do with it. Where would you fly to and why?
We know that the majority of our readership is from Europe, we know that the majority of FS pilots seem to prefer the heavier metal end of the market, whether they’re flying the default airliners, PMDG NGX or Concorde. Therefore, for this one, we’ll stick with the most popular choices and start at Aerosoft’s Mega Airport Frankfurt, pictured above.
Your parameters are a maximum of approximately two hours’ radius (brakes off to brakes on), from EDDF, in a short haul, single aisle, airliner – an A320 series, B737, Embraer Jet or equivalent. Doesn’t matter which sim, which aircraft model, whether you’re using payware, freeware or default. Over to you… Where to and why?
