It's the ZTL FNO in the so-called "City in the Forest". At nearly 47% tree canopy, yep you guessed it, Atlanta (KATL). So on July 17, 2020 we'll be celebrating our eco-friendly airport by staffing it up for 4 hours (2300-0300z). Fill up the busiest airport in the world with your favorite flying materials, but make sure to look out the window and take in the sights of this beautiful city located in the heart of the Southern United States. And if you don't get the tree thing, I swear it's real, check out the website:

For those on P3D v4 and below or FSX, without up-to-date/payware scenery, make sure you have an up-to-date airport file:

EVEN IF YOU HAVE PAYWARE SCENERY ON V4 AND BELOW/FSX, updated navaid data (needed):
(Ensure you get the "ILS/rwy update" as well. This is due to an old KLZU frequency interfering with ILS 28.)

Furthermore, if you have ORBX FTX Global Airports, this interferes with the above navaid update with LZU, and so should be disabled for flying ATL.

P3D v5 has updated scenery for KATL for all you trail blazers using v5 also the 28 ILS is about 25-45 ft south lenient, so do be weary of this, if you have updated navdata than the runway visualizer (on Boeings and Airbuses not sure about other aircraft) should be in the right spot, this only occurs with 28, not 10, so do be weary of this, love you Lockheed.
