Hello everyone,

This will be a 2 part update in Metropolis an area off the the East of Tywei. In part 1 we have a look at the small international airport (Metro International Airport (MTINA)). The recently expanded airport houses many 747's but mainly serves smaller planes. The 747's are in the Southern Terminal (B) and the smaller jets are at the Northern Terminal (A). Serving the airport for parts and maintenance is the Airport Industrial Park just south of the M-121. Along the sides are many small hotels and motels. Here is an overview, feeding the airport from the city centre is the M-13 a full RHW-10, and has a peculiar interchange with the aforementioned M-121 another RHW-10.

I like the overall layout of it and the possibility to expand the airport.
nonetheless I'd like to suggest you familiarize yourself with the very basics of an airport construction as your work is basically good, but shows big flaws in terms of realism which ruin the good design ideas

its not about the size, it's about airport itself... the runway markings, taxiway layout, utilities... to be completely honest and looking at it from a realsim point of view, pretty much everything is wrong here.
for instance, I spot like 8 VOR/VORTAC antennas... IF there's any at an airport at all, it's just one. Or a tower, airports with such traffic MUST have a tower...
consider what the airport should be like, eg hobby flying, small regional or big international and then go ahead and look at real life counterparts and gather info...
you call it metro international airport.
no look at airports like frankfurt, amsterdam, heathrow, new york jfk, los angeles lax, san francisco, atlanta and the likes.
also I'd suggest to take a look at the show us your airport thread, there's plenty of inspiration and a lot of realistic designed airports
