Description:

Genoa - Sestri Airport (IATA: GOA, ICAO: LIMJ), also known as "Cristoforo Colombo" International Airport, is an Italian airport located in the city of Genoa, on an artificial peninsula opposite the Sestri Ponente district. The facility is equipped with a 2916 m long paved airstrip, with RWY 10-28 orientation.

Given its proximity to the city (it is located about 9 km west of the center of Genoa), the airport is considered a city airport.

The airport is the largest in Liguria, with about 1.5 million passengers per year, and connects Genoa with the numerous national airports and the main European intercontinental interchange airports.


Features:

The scenary includes: Three custom buildings for Terminal, Control Tower and Piaggio Hangars located north of the airport. It also include the cranes of the nearby harbor
- All horizontal signs have been redesigned using an updated satellite image as a reference.
- Repositioned all parking spot to reflect their real position and correct numbering, as indicated on the airport charts
- Corrected course of the Localizer Path with the two degrees offset missing in the default airport (so yes, it's right that it's crooked :-) ). To work around a flaw in MSFS (which you can read here for more info) I hid a fictional runway under the real one. So in your FMS, both will appear. For practical purposes, nothing changes. Choose any one
PS. Beware of the harbor cranes in short final :-)


Compatibility:

This scenery is fully compatible with:
- Genova Cristoforo Colombo airport (LIMJ) - Italy by Quelcertoleo which adds environment elements that greatly increase immersion. you can find it here:
https://it.flightsim.to/file/1912/genova-cristoforo-colombo-airport-limj-italy

It also compatible with (Read the installation paragraph for more information)
- Project Coastline Italy by Project Coastline Team. which adds environment elements that greatly increase immersion
and
- Genova city (google photogrammery) by Dax87


Installation:

Simply, extract the content of the zip file inside Community folder.
the scenario consists of two folders. The first named "simog-limj-airport" is the main scenario and contains the airport.
The second, named "Simog-GenovaHarbor" contains the harbor cranes. This folder can be removed in case you already use another scenario with these elements (for example Project Coastline Italy or Genova City by Dax87) in order to guarantee compatibility.

    Excellent job. Your version added together with Quelceroleo's updated compatible version make for a great marriage in the community folder. The
    terminal and surrounding areas are now superb and I will fly there often. Look forward to any further enhancements but as it stands, this combination already makes for a fine experience.

    Non so se un mio problema.
    L'ILS lo visualizza correttamente ma lo segue parallelo

      Che intendi con parallelo?
    • lorenzoguidotti
      6 day(s) ago
      non è un bug, nella realtà l'ils è dissestato.
    • Neg0577

      @Simog.
      Ho riprovato ed oggi si è comportato correttamente. Vedrò nel tempo.
      L'altra sera in 2 aerei abbiamo riscontrato lo stesso esatto problema. Magari è stato un problema della MOD FBW. Caso mai ti aggiorno.

      @lorenzoguidotti
      Se parlo di parallelo, significa parallelo non dissestato (tecnicamente si scrive offset).
      So benissimo come è fatto l'ILS di Genova

      @simog ciao, anche a me il CRS dell'ILS 28 non funziona correttamente.
      Per esempio con 2 aerei che lo impostano automaticamente come il TBM o il CJ4 (sia moddati che in versione default Asobo), il CRS risulta 266° e non 286° come dovrebbe essere. Tutto ok invece con l'aeroporto di default. Grazie.

      @crisk73 266? Grazie del feedback. Vado a verificare che è successo.

    Very beautiful and detailed scenery !
    Nice work.

    Could you do LIPZ Venezia if possible ?

    Ciao! Complimenti e grazie per aver finalmente portato una versione più realistica di LIMJ! Da pilota sono contento d'ora in poi di poter volare a Genova anche su MSFS! A parte il poter migliorare gli edifici intorno e quelli della parte cargo e aeroclub vorrei darti due consigli per dei fix velocissimi ma molto importanti:
    I punti di attesa intermedi L1, L2 e L3 non esistono più da un paio di anni e sono stati rinominati rispettivamente come E1, F1 e G1 (la loro posizione non cambia).
    Nelle immagini di preview il canadair è posizionato correttamente, ma personalmente caricando lo scenario il canadair è posizionato in una zona sbagliata di proprietà della Piaggio. I parcheggi riservati ai canadair sono il 308 e il 309 e generalmente sono sempre entrambi occupati quindi sarebbe bello metterci un canadair in entrambi.
    Per il resto ottimo lavoro! Forse cambierei la texture di alcune linee soprattutto quelle rosse che nel sim sono molto accese ma nella realtà piuttosto sbiadite. Se hai bisogno di qualche info/foto la prossima volta che volo a Genova posso provare a dartele nei limiti del possibile.

      Ciao. Grazie, info molto utili. Infatti dei 3 punti non capivo quale fosse corretto, quelli nella foto di google (la principale fonte dati) o quelli in alcuni video che ho visto.

      Per il Canadair invece, prima del rilascio, l'ho rimosso su consiglio di chi vola su Ivao/Vatsim in modo da non trovarsi costretti a parcheggiarci dentro 😊 solo che mi dispiaceva cestinarlo visto che è ben fatto così l'ho spostato li.

    nice work.
    let me know should you be interested in merging my scenario with yours.
    I can forward you the sources of my package which includes boats and ships in the marina and main ports and some minor details missing on yours (breakwaters, airport light masts, fences, etc)
    remember to check with litewolf (who made the lanterna included in my scenario) for permission, he should be available in volovirtuale.com and I'm sure he will grant permission for the lanterna.
    merging the scenarios shouldn't be much of a problem, either import mine as a separate BGL in your or, in alternative, you could try manually patching the xml files (probably riskier)

    forgot to mention, be sure to check approaches using ATC Comunications delegated to AI as I had some problems in the past with CTDs using AI ATC and airports with double overlapping runways (one virtual runway, one material runway).

      Hi.
      I just wanted to send you a message to know if you were interested in adapting your scenary 😀

      If you no longer have an interest in further development, I can merge it with mine. However the only incompatible things are the buildings you used to recreate the terminal. The rest I have seen is already good.

      For the Lanterna I am already registered on VoloVirtuale so it wouldn't be a problem to contact him.

      Thanks for the tip with the AI. I hadn't thought of trying it
    • quelcertoleo
      9 day(s) ago
      adapting my scenery would be even simpler. I guess it would be enough to remove the sdk objects I had added to make the terminal a bit more similar to the real one and a few apron objects.
      I'll leave the lanterna, probably I should be able to publish an update in a few days.
      do you have a detailed and comprhensive list of what I need to remove? I had added airport fence, red/white plastic barriers around the ILS emitters and some other objects which are inside the airport perimeter.
    • simog
      9 day(s) ago
      Later I take another more detailed tour and look what else is overlapped, besides the terminal and I'll let you know.

      Guys, it's fantastic you are both working together to merge the best parts of both your sceneries. I can't wait for the results. This is one of my favourite airports and its layout and location deserves the effort. Kudos to you both!

      Guys if you merge both of your scenery from LIMJ it will be amazing 😍, you both did a really great Job. Congrats!I hope to see a combined scenery from your work soon.
      Thanks to you!

    so which runways should we actually line up to ? since you said there are an extra 2 runways?!
    • simog
      10 day(s) ago
      The only one you see 😊

      the other, as I wrote, only serves to cheat the system and make sure that the ILS course is the correct one. If you haven't read the link I posted about it, I'll give you a quick summary:

      In Genoa, Runway 28 has a heading of 288° but its ILS is angled and has a course of 286° The problem is that if you enter the correct course in the ILS settings in the scenary, FS ignores it and sets it on the headig of runway to which it is assigned. The only way to work around this bug I found, is to hide a runway under the real one by setting its Heading to 286° and equipping it with ILS.
    • jonny2speeds
      10 day(s) ago
      ah nono that i understood but you mentioned that we will have 4 runways on the FMS? as in how would we know which correct one to choose? I should have used better wording
    • simog
      10 day(s) ago
      it is indifferent, in practice because the runways are physically one above the other (they have the center in common). it is more a warning to say that it is not a bug but it is intended. I'm going to correct the description to make it better understandable (because in fact, re-reading it, I didn't write it too well).
    • jonny2speeds
      10 day(s) ago
      hehe no worries, not sure if you misunderstood me but I meant that I myself did not use correct wording hehe

      Some feedback regarding the scenery, Maybe you can add some ships also or maybe ask quelcertoleo to merge his surrounding scenery of LIMJ with your airport creating one great project! 😊 what do you think?
    • simog

    Innanzitutto grazie! L'aerostazione è molto bella e richiama quella vera. Perch' sia Genova, però, mancano la Lanterna e l'Hilton dietro all'aerostazione. Le gru del porto sono quasi tutte del tipo Paceco a 4 zampe (quelle gialle) mentre a un braccio solo sono solo nel vecchio porto. Qualche nave qua e là ormeggiate, non guasterebbero. E' solo un suggerimento costruttivo per le prossime release (se ne avrai voglia). Grazie ancora.
    • simog
      10 day(s) ago
      Grazie per i suggerimenti. Non ho capito il discorso delle gru. Intendi che ho messo un tipo sbagliato?
      Per gli edifici aggiuntivi, magari ne aggiungo ancora qualcuno più avanti (come l'hotel) Per la Lanterna invece ti consiglio di scaricare quella di Litewolf che trovi su questo sito. Non penso di essere in grado di fare meglio di lui a rappresentarla 😊

      Per completare Genova, come città, consiglio lo scenario di Dax87: https://flightsim.to/file/1919/italia-citta-di-genova-sd
      Aggiunge anche la lanterna, il porto, le navi e rende molto più realistico l'approach alla pista. Inoltre è totalmente compatibile con questo scenario.

      Si, le gru corrette, dove vedi containers sui moli, sono quelle gialle a 4 zampe. Lo scenario di Quelcertoleo è molto buono (a perte l'aerostazione). Se di 2 ne fate 1.-....fate bingo! 😄😄😄😄 Grazie a entrambi!
    • simog
      7 day(s) ago
      Fatto Quelcertoleo ha aggiornato il suo scenario. Ora sono pienamente compatibili 😊
