Runway and Taxiway lighting are accurately and realistically rendered.
All aspects of the airport tower can be adjusted from the viewpoint to the scenery object used to display the tower within FSX.
Jetways are fully supported and rendered to display their position and heading relative to their parking location. Changes to the gate name and number of a parking location will also be updated in the appropriate jetway, ensuring your jetways stay associated with your gates.
