I am building a fully functional redstone airport with luggage deposit and transit and fully functional airplanes and gates.
I am building this airport on a flat world
Compatible with Minecraft 1.10+

Runway design by liquid-7 : http://www.planetminecraft.com/project/flatland-epic-runway-with-military-airport-unfinished/
This runway design is not going to be the one I will use in my airport; it is just here to represent my project and was not made by me.

Done :
- Luggage deposit systems
- Airplane parking and ramp designs
- Luggage arrival and retrieval system
- Lost and found system
- Control room controlling all accesses and lights throughout the main airport building
- Security area
- Customs
- Terminals with gates and airplane parkings
- Runways design
- Airplanes design
- Control rooms (1 for each terminal) controlling plane parkings (gates, bridges, doors, accesses, luggage system to / from aircraft, lights, etc.) (both manual and automatic systems)

To do :
- Control tower
- Runways and other taxiways throughout the airport (designed & planned)
- Open air plane parking (80% designed)
- Exterior design and car parkings (60% done)

Please comment and leave suggestions :)

A download link and a schematic of the whole airport will be available when the project will be finished.

I am building this entirely on my own :)
Already 37 hours spent on this build and more than 126 hours spent on my test / design world, as well as 3 hours on another design world :o (last updated 14/12/15) 20
Progress: 65% Complete

Update : 07/16/2017 1:06:38 pm7/16/17

This is the first of a series of summer updates I hope.
I have been making a lot of progress on the automatic control rooms for the plane gates so that they control all the systems automatically without the need for a human player. Since I will include different types of aircraft in my airport, I am modifying the control rooms to fit the different aircrafts (only minor modifications) and am almost done doing so and redesigning them so that they are even more 'intelligent'. Now all that I have left to do is add everything to the final airport design, build the final runways and taxiways, design and add the luggage systems and the control tower, and decorate :).

Update !! : 07/04/2016 3:06:04 pm7/04/16

More progress has been made; the building of the terminals is almost done (as well as the airplane gates & parkings); Next step will be taxiways and runways :)

+5% done !!

Big Update : 07/02/2016 5:04:33 pm7/02/16

Hey !
I am very happy to tell you that I have determined the size of the terminals (necessary to fit together the planes, the gates and the redstone) :)

+5% done; progress is going fast !

next step(s) : building the final airport (with the terminals), linking all the redstone and other systems, implementing the runways (yes, plural!), taxiways, plane parkings and hangars), adding the final touches & car parkings & roads, building the control tower and other control rooms

Update ! : 06/29/2016 1:02:02 pm6/29/16

"Progress is being made"

Designed and built a huge new plane and its gate :)
Progressed on the airport layout and its systems

+5% done !

Reboost : 06/28/2016 12:03:08 pm6/28/16

Alright, it's summer time !

I'm therefore going to focus on the airport and boost my productivity by making it progress very fast.

Enjoy :)

Update : 02/22/2016 4:15:15 am2/22/16


I am still making some decent progress on the airport.
+5% done !

Have fun ;)

Update : 12/14/2015 11:42:27 am12/14/15

Update !

Achieved features :
- Metro or other transportation way to travel through the airport (25% done)
- Advanced on the open air plane parkings and the terminals & gates
- A lot of designing & testing & struggling with wires ;)

Update : 09/06/2015 4:46:47 am9/06/15

I have added a medium airplane :)
Automatic gate control system coming soon

Update : 09/05/2015 4:57:41 pm9/05/15

Hey !

I just finished designing some wings for one of my planes, which I had been looking forward to for a while. Here is the first images of one of my planes. I also almost finished a fully automatic gate control system.

Hope you enjoy it :)

Update : 08/28/2015 6:40:50 am8/28/15

Hey guys

This time I have designed two entirely new planes to fit in the airport, as well as their automatic luggage and gate staircases / bridges systems. I have as well designed the gate control system which is ready to be included in the airport and am starting to work on a fully functional control tower.

+5% done !

As always I have added new images of the systems :)

Update : 07/09/2015 4:20:03 pm7/09/15

Hey everybody !

I am currently working on the airplane gateways as well as the transportation systems and the HUGE terminals (domestic and international with lots of cool planes, vehicles and other details like duty free shops) ! Cool stuff coming, stay tuned :)

+5% done

Also thanks for all the positive feedback, it makes me really want to finish this awesome project, which i am working very hard on (currently more than 31 hours on the actual world and about 24 hours on my test world + ~3 hours of planning and design irl)

Update : 07/08/2015 4:08:35 am7/08/15

Added customs, whole lighting system and beginning of terminals.

+5% done !

Thanks !! : 07/07/2015 11:08:48 am7/07/15

Because of all the awesome positive feedback i decided to share with you another image of the airport.
Again, thanks to all of you !

Updates coming soon :)

Yes I am still working on the project and am having a lot of fun working it out piece by piece, but I have slowed down a bit due to real life work, although I aim to get a lot done during this summer :)

You didn't design the runway :(, I would've diamonded if you did

This runway is an example of how the final one will look like; I only chose it because it represents best the project but I give full credit to liquid-7 for the design (however, mine will be better :p).
Also please keep in mind that the project is only 55% done and that I only have the basic layout and design for the runways (yes, plural) and taxiways, but I have not implemented them yet as I am still finishing the biggest planes to be able to get measures for the airport and assemble all the pieces of the airport (terminals, runways, taxiways, plane parkings, hangars, etc.).
Updates coming soon ;)

Because the title says 'no command blocks' and I find it more interesting to try to make it without command blocks, also some servers are not command block friendly :) But I could make a version with command blocks if requested
would this airport going to be mcheli compatble (Just saying cause mcheli planes are massicve especially the MD-90Er0

Can i drive the airplane? thats epic!
  • AnatoleH2

  • July 7, 2015, 10:11 pm
For the airplane to be driven you would need either a LOT of command blocks or a mod (zeppelin mod or archimede's ships)
I will try downloading the mod when the airport will be finished.
