Since this tutorial video dates back to 2017, not everything shown in the clip is still up to date. In particular, a number of rules have changed in the mean time, our email address for submissions has changed and the WED setup shown in the video does no longer work for the latest version of WorldEditor. Nevertheless the video is still a good starting point to get a first impression of how airport editing is done. For up-to-date information on rules and software requirements please read our beginner's guide.
