CYTZ Toronto Island Airport

Authors: CDN 791M and Chris K of the International Scenery Development Group (ISDG)

Version 1.0 - Jun 25, 2013



- USGS 30cm/pix Hi-res Orthophotos.

- An Updated Toronto City Centre (Billy Bishop) Airport by CDN791M (Ed).

- FreddyV's CN Tower Replacement Object (credits below)

- Extensive buildout of Toronto Island and Surrounding Environs (Ontario Place, Christie Spit, etc)

- Additional Toronto Downtown Buildings in various locations using the XP10 Art Library.

Note: this is a 100% original work for XP10 - and should not detract from Pachett's excellent CYTZ for v9/v10.



- X-Plane 10.20 or Better (http://www.x-plane.com/)

- OpensceneryX 2.0 (http://opensceneryx.com/)

- A Modern Video Card with MINIMUM 512Mb VRAM.

- You will want to run this scenery at "very high" or "extreme" Texture Resolution.

- X-Plane 64-bit and 1 Gb VRAM Video card is recommended for the Higher Texture resolutions.


Complimentary packages (i.e. Where is The Rest of Toronto!?!?)

You should *also* install the following:

CYYZ Toronto Pearson Airport

Jacques Brault - Toronto Skyline:

X-P.org: http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=17619

1. Copy Jacques' Package into your /Custom Scenery/

2. Inside our "CYTZ Toronto Island Airport" package is a folder called "Skyline Package - Night Lighting Textures".

3. Copy in those additional textures (courtesy of ILMARS) to Jacque's Skyline Package's /objects/ directory.

This will give you night textures for the buildings.

Once done:

4. Edit your /Custom Scenery/scenery.ini file to manually position our package at the top of the .ini file

Ensure that our scenery (CYTZ Toronto Island Airport) is before Jacques (zCanada CYTZ Island ON) package in the list.

Your scenery_pack.ini should look something like this:

I1000 versionSCENERYSCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/CYTZ Toronto Island Airport/SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/CYYZ Toronto Pearson/SCENERY_PACK Custom Scenery/zCanada CYTZ Toronto Island ON/...... other stuff...

(Note: If you don't feel like mucking about with an .ini file - simply delete your personal /Custom Scenery/scenery_packs.ini file, and due to alphabetical order on reload, the load order ends up putting the packages in the correct order).

Upon reload of X-Plane, this scenery then merges with Jacques' excellent Toronto Skyline. Due to the way the X-Plane does object overlays, the two scenery packages blend into one seamless scenery, with full day and night lighting effects.

Incredible work....that it is freeware is fantastic! Many good airports available now but this package gives one of the very few realistic airport + city skylines in one. Thanks for the efforts of this team.

Obrienct: It would be missing all the orthos (4k maps), half the buildings (XP10 library), all the edging (XP10 facades), All the lighting (XP10 custom HDR), etc.....

You can try using the XP9 Compat library, but you'll need to down sample a few of the DDS orthoimages to 2k x 2k at a 4-times loss of quality. It won't be pretty.

You can already download the toronto skyline package for XP8/XP9 right now, as well as the CNTower (URLs posted in the description) if that's what you're after, independent of this package.

Suggest you use the existing XP9 packages for Toronto City That already exist from other authors - and then migrate to this package when you've upgraded to XP10.

WOW, the use of lighting for the stadiums, just jaw dropping!  All the little details add so much to the overall night scenery. 


Amazing work guys.

> WOW, the use of lighting for the stadiums, just jaw dropping!



Hehe thanks. We were inspired by Arti's brother's video ( click here to see it ) - the parks and stadiums I noticed were all lit up in his video... hence we tried to do the same!


Glad you noticed those "little touches" we've added.

CYTZ uses Offset ILS Localizers. Nothing is amiss - its how it is in the real world. :)


Check the "Charts" directory and pull up the ILS and Aerodrome charts; you'll see that on both RWY08/26 the LOCs are offset quite a bit (3-6 degrees) to avoid downtown obstacles.


There is no Glideslope on RWY26.


Hence, You will not be able to do any type of "auto-land" at CYTZ - Just like real life. :)

Hi, I have a peculiar problem with this scenery (I think); although what shows up is fantastic - especially at night! - it seems as this scenery, in conjunction with the other 2 suggested alongside it (the City Skyline and Lester Pearson Airport), wipes away the "ordinary" or rest of the Toronto scenery. Outside the citycenter there is nothing, only flat ground: all the roads and buildings etc disappers!? But if removing the scenery, it turns up again. I kinow for sure its not as it should be, if judging from recent videos of the scenery, or that its about low settings (have tried on "very high" resolution and "megatons" for objects).


How can that be? I really cannot understand. 


I would be grateful for help, as I really want to start using this scenery,

Can you PM me your log.txt? Something else must be interfering.


There is a button abive called [support topic] - suggest you post there. "comments" in the file take a week to show up... and I dont get any flag to say "a new comment has been left".
