About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

In Airport Sim, players assume the roles of the ground crew at one of four faithfully re-created plane terminals. They will be responsible for the maintenance of aircrafts and the passengers' well-being — in various scenarios and weather conditions.

What happens behind the scenes at airports? Your bag disappears on a conveyor belt and it appears (or not) at your final destination. The secrets of airports will be unveiled in Airport Sim, a simulator game in which players handle luggage, refuel planes, use technical vehicles (e.g., jetways, tractors, "follow me" cars), and undertake ground crew tasks (e.g., assisting taxiing or the handling of special generators).

All activities follow a strict time schedule. Planning each action and finding the optimal workflow allows passengers to safely travel to their destinations. Weather conditions and random events will keep even the best ground crew on their toes.

In the campaign, the player is responsible for handling flights based on real timetables and undertake all the necessary activities to keep the planes on schedule. In Free Play, the ground crew struggles against random events and adjusts the weather conditions at their location.

All terminals and tarmacs are based on real-life locations. Players may tour them in a separate Visitor mode. Co-op mode allows gamers to find optimal ways to service planes and passengers with their friends' assistance.

Airport Sim is a great sandbox for aviation fans. With Steam Workshop integration, the game allows users to create custom timetables, modify vehicles, and create a new airline.


Key Features:

  • Faithfully re-created airports: Vágar, Keflavik, Key West and Frankfurt (more to come later as DLCs);
  • Licensed technical vehicles, created based on real schematics and blueprints;
  • Most popular commercial aircrafts e.g. Boeing 737-800 or Airbus A320 NEO;
  • Different gameplay modes: Campaign, Free Play, Co-op and Visitor Mode;
  • Real-life weather conditions were created using data from METAR (a weather report for aviation professionals);
  • Customizable weather conditions;
  • Faithful representation of the sun's position in the sky based on geographical location, time and date;
  • Real ground crew tasks, recreated after numerous interviews and based on existing documentation and procedures;
  • Steam Workshop support allows players to modify the machines and gameplay

Airport Sim is in development for PC (Steam) and planned for Q2 2023.
