                                      Getting Started
    =================================================
    
    BUILDING YOUR NEW AIRPORT
    Before you can open your airport up for business,
    you will need to build some mandatory buildings.
    Click on the Construct tab to access all of the
    available items. When you hover your cursor over
    each item, a price and short discription appear
    just to the right explaining the rule of that
    structure. Here is the list of all the required
    buildings you need before you open your airport:
    
     o Runway
     o Taxiway (should have multiple)
     o Plane Stand (should have multiple)
     o Apron
     o Turnaround
     o Airport Maintenance Building
     o Cargo or Passenger Terminal
    
    CHOOSING A TERMINAL TYPE
    Before placing buildings down, you need to decide
    whether your going to build a cargo or passenger
    airport. Choosing a cargo terminal will make life
    much easier as there will be no bomb treats,
    resulting in a loss of airport rating. But on the
    other hand, you wont make as nearly as much money
    as you would with a passenger airport with the
    vending machines and catering fees to the
    airlines that you host. It is entirely up to you
    to decide which path you wish to go with. Just
    note that with any terminal building that you
    place down, you cannot demolish it. Also note,
    that when building a cargo terminal, you will
    also need to place any type of storage unit. If
    you choose a passenger terminal, I suggest
    building a pre-made one. It is more expensive,
    but it has everything you'll need
    
    BUILDING A RUNWAY
    Since this is a brand new airport, you will only
    have one runway available to you, the 1000m. This
    runway is used for the smallest of the small
    planes that barely hold fifty people. Also, you
    cannot destroy runways without canceling all of
    the flights assigned to that runway.
    
    BUILDING THE REST OF THE REQUIRE BUILDINGS
    Now with your terminal and runway is place, it's
    time to fill iin the pieces with the rest of the
    require buildings before you open up your airport

                                  Acquiring Contracts
    =================================================
    
    THE BASICS
    You will not get contracts when your airport is
    closed, simply put. If you wish to view your
    current contracts, go under the Business tab and
    select Contracts. You get contracts based off of
    your airport rating and customer satisfaction.
    When a new contract is available to your,
    double-click on the message in the Message Panel,
    it will then automatically open up the contracts
    page and go directly to the pending contracts
    section. Depending on what you want to do, you
    can either accept, reject, or renegotiate. To
    renegotiate, click on the checkmark of term that
    you dont agree with and then send it back. 
    Businesses will not negotiate for long, so don't
    plan on always getting what you want. Some
    companies will not even negotiate even once, so
    think twice before to do it.
    
    TYPES OF CONTRACTS
    There are 4 main groups of contract types:
    
     o Airline Contracts
     o Outside Contracts
     o Inside Contracts
     o Airline Service Contracts
    
    AIRLINE CONTRACTS
    Airline contracts are agreements between you
    airport and other airlines to use you airport.
    Along with airline contracts, there are also
    sub-contracts. Including Master Business
    Contracts, Flight Contracts, and HUB Contracts.
    Master Business Contracts are the first contract
    that you will recieve so that airlines may start
    to use your airport. One of these contracts per
    airline. Signing these contracts will get you
    signing bonuses. Flight Contracts are the most
    common type of contracts in the game. You get one
    contract for every individual plane. If you have
    the contract auto-renew option checked, you will
    automatically renew that contract after each
    flight it makes. HUB Contracts are agreements
    with you and an airline that they will repair
    their airplanes at your airport. After dealing
    with an airline for multiple years and are still
    in good terms, then you should start to be
    getting these. Don's expect these though until
    you have a Plane Maintain #3. 
    
    OUTSIDE BUSINESS CONTRACTS
    There are two types of these contracts that you
    will recieve, hotels and gas stations. These
    businesses will not cost you anything and will
    only make you more revenue. Once signing the
    contracts, you can place the structures wherever
    you want. They must have road access to work
    properly. Just keep in mind the surrounding area
    does effect the businesses. For example, if you
    place a gas station where you keep all of your
    administration offices at. No one will go there.
    A good place to place it is near the entrance of
    your airport or near you parking lots. Same idea
    with the hotels, don't place them right next to
    the runway. Otherwise the business will pack up
    and leave.
    
    AIRLINE SERVICE CONTRACTS
    These contracts include the refueling and
    catering of your incoming airplanes. These
    contracts do not get signed however. They come
    and go based off of your ratings. These services
    are rated on a scale from one to five. Five being
    the best and one being to worst. Othertime as
    your airport improves, so will the qulaity by
    going higher.

    =================================================
                                 Managing Your Budget
    =================================================
    
    CONTRACTS
    This is an easy way for you to make alot of
    money. Every airline that you sign a contract
    with will give you a signing bonus. Starting out
    at about seventy-five thousand dollars. Hotels
    and gas stations will give you alot of well. But
    the real challenge is to be able to make it that
    far with your aiport. No doubt that you will go
    into debt. I sure have, but it's alright. As long
    as you pull in a profit you'll be fine.
    
    CONSTRUCTION
    This is the part where I tell you how you can
    make a large amount of profit. When building your
    airport, start out with your runway, terminal,
    control tower, turnaround, plain maintain, and
    airport maintain. You wont need anything else.
    You won't need a admin office just yet as you
    will still get contracts through your terminal.
    
    AIRPORT CHARGES
    This is the section you should close attention
    to. Before opening your airport. Set your
    catering and refueling costs up to a buck fifty.
    The reason for this is that gas and food will
    cost you a dollar to start off. Therefore you
    won't be making any money from it. Don't bother
    with the passenger charge though. Messing with
    anything more will only have airlines and
    contracts avoid your airport.

    =================================================
             Raising Your Airport And Customer Rating
    =================================================
    
    AIRPORT RATING
    Your airport rating is based off of how well your
    airport runs. Having more buildings will help
    boost your rating. Also you should have your
    airport covered with police and fire support. Set
    you police status to 'cautious' as well. You can
    do this by right-clicking on a police station and
    at the bottom of the panel will have the option
    that your looking for.
    
    CUSTOMER SATISFACTION
    Your travelers approval rating will all depend on
    the beauty of your airport and how convenient it
    is to them. For example, having alot of trees and
    flowers fill in extra spaces in between buildings
    will have boost satisfaction.

    =================================================
                                 Growing Your Airport
    =================================================
    
    1970-1976
    These years you should only have to required
    structures. Eventually you'll need admin offices
    so that your able to have more contracts. You
    should be expanding these as soon as they get
    full. Other than that, you should have between
    five and ten plane stands in your airport. If you
    go into debt when placing down new buildings it's
    alright, as long as you know that your taking in
    a profit each month. You'll get that debt paid in
    full pretty soon.
    
    1977-1985
    This is the year to start making your airport's
    appearence look good. Place trees and grass
    throughout the roads in your airport. Also expand
    by placing another runway, the 2000m. Don't
    bother with any new terminals just yet. The
    reason being is that you can only have four
    terminals in your airport. If you haven't
    already, you should build a medium control tower
    along with a fire and police station in the
    beginning years of this section.
    
    1986-2000
    Now if you have the money, you should now build
    passenger terminal #4. This terminal will allow
    you to have jetways in your airport, as well as a
    huge customer satisfaction boost from how
    convenient they are to your travelers. And when
    the cargo terminal #3 is available to you in
    1990. You should build that. The reason being is
    that some airlines in the game are for cargo
    transport only. You want to have the maximum
    number of airlines at your airport to generate
    the most money over time.
    
    2001-WHENEVER
    The last terminal you should buy will be
    passenger terminal #8. It will be unlocked in the
    year 2060. It is also has a very hefty price tag
    on it but it's worth it. You can connect
    twenty-eight jetways to it, you'll never again
    have to worry about not having enough space for
    planes. The one problem though is that the
    terminal is so large that you may or may not have
    enough space for it though. If you thought ahead
    you should have left a pretty good chunk of the
    land unused. Anyway, this is basically the end of
    the game right here as there is nothing else to
    be unlocked. If you wish to continue playing.
    Have fun and remember to expand you control
    towers, admin offices, fire and police stations,
    and anything else I forgot to mention.

    =================================================
                                Getting Bigger Planes
    =================================================
    
    RUNWAYS
    You won't get any bigger planes if you don't have
    a bug enough runway. Planes like the BoodWing
    (Boeing) 747 will need the 3500m runway. Average
    size planes that you would see at any main
    airport, in my case O' Hare in Chicago. You'll
    need the 3000m. And some will be able to get away
    with the 2000m.
    
    QUALITY
    This is the quality of your refueling and
    catering services. You'll need them to be both
    the same star level. If you take a look at the
    section 'Airlines And Planes' you see what level
    each airline is to unlock. It is in worst to best
    order. Meaning DBA INTERNATIONAL is the best
    airline in the game that you can get.
    
    TRAFFIC
    Having more traffic at your airport is a
    no-brainer. Having more travelers will have
    airlines sending bigger planes to you to get more
    passengers for more money.
    
    JETWAYS
    These also attract bigger planes as that's the
    only kind of plane a jetway can have.
