Here's what you need to know about our aircraft overlays.
1. The aircraft by default will be overlaid at the runway midpoint, aligned on centerline and parallel to the runway itself.
2. There is no default for which runway the aircraft is overlaid on; for large aircraft we may use the longest runway. Or we may choose based on which placement best fits the overall design.
3. There is no default for which direction (base or reciprocal) the aircraft is pointing, but we tend to place them pointing somewhat north, 271 through 090 rather than 091 through 270.
4. The aircraft is in proportion but not to scale. That is, it is the correct shape, but appears much larger than it should in the scale of the runway.
5. If your aircraft isn't on the list, please request it. We will do our best to add it to our library.
6. If you prefer a specific runway, please specify under 'special requests'.
