Airstairs instead of evacuation slides.

Hi,

I am thinking of getting the B757 III. However there are things I have been thinking about for a long time when it comes to Captain Sim aircraft.

One thing is, why are you modelling emergency slides instead of airstairs? I mean, airstairs are used far more than the slides? And an aircraft sometimes uses remote airports without any gates. Wink

The 757 never had built in airstairs to my knowledge and if any did they were very rare. The 757 wasn't made for remote airports that the 727 was designed for.

I think he means modeled airstairs (like an airstair cart) that would show up on the side of the aircraft.

Many airports do not have jetways, or all parking spots are filled, so the plane has to park at a location without a jetway.  I like the escape slides, and would recommend leaving this feature, but air stairs would be a nice alternative, even if not realistic for the 757.

GSX will be your best bet, it has airstairs for deplaning passengers (and actual deplaning passengers!)
