KIAD version 1 is offered in two versions sold separately, one for FS2004 and another for FSX.
Each version is sold for US$ 17.50

Current Version: 2.2
Publication Date: 2013.06.08

A free upgrade to KIAD version 2.2 is available for download here. Purchase and installation of the corresponding KIAD version 1 scenery (FS2004 or FSX) is required prior to installation of the version 2.2 upgrade..

BluePrint Simulations’ KIAD version 2 scenery depicts Washington-Dulles International Airport as it exists in 2011. It includes the main terminal and four concourses as well as all relevant cargo maintenance and general aviation facilities. A detailed model of the National Aerospace Museum located under the runway 1R approach path is also included.

Nearly all the 3D structures included in the version 2 upgrade are 100% new, incorporating BluePrint’s latest modeling and texturing techniques. Version 2 also incorporates all changes and improvements implemented at IAD after version 1 was released. Major changes and updates are:

  • all modifications to the main terminal including the new AeroTrain Station and international arrivals hall
  • the Concourse B expansion including the AeroTrain station and relabeled A/B gates
  • the new runway 1L/19R and all associated taxiways including updated signs and markings
  • the new remote parking ramp
  • the new general aviation facilities located at the northeast corner of the terminal complex
  • Special attention was paid to the precise location of gates and parking spots using custom-made static service vehicles and new ramp marking. The field layout was updated to accurately represent the real airport including four runways, taxiways, aprons and signage. Some additional signs have been included to facilitate operations within the simulator environment.

    Version 2 also incorporates the latest terrain textures, reformatted and carefully blended with the surrounding environment.

    Design Considerations:

  • KIAD v2 includes all new, streamlined jetways and parking spot ground markings, lighting fixtures and illumination effects, as well as custom-made static vehicles for the five concourses
  • The model for the Concourse C/D basic structure was not updated because it remains essentially unchanged in real life and plans for its replacement appear to be on track. The structure providing access to the future concourse AeroTrain station is not included
  • BluePrint Simulations sceneries are not compatible with FSX default animated vehicles and do not include static or AI traffic aircraft models
    • Custom-made, optimized Gmax models of the entire facility including the main terminal and four concourses, the air traffic control tower and all relevant general aviation, aircraft maintenance and cargo facilities within the field’s boundary. A detail model of the National Aerospace Museum located just south of runway 1R/19L is also included
    • Custom-made, high-resolution textures for all Gmax generated models including transparency effects
    • Custom-made, high-resolution photo real ground textures depicting seasonal changes and carefully blended with the surrounding terrain
    • Accurate runway and taxiway layout including the new runway 1L/19R as well as detailed markings and signs
    • Realistic taxiway and ramp markings and ramp illumination effects
    • Two levels of scenery complexity and detail:
      • NORMAL complexity includes terrain texturing, autogen vegetation, airport layout with taxiway signs and basic navigation equipment models (actual localizer and glide slope radio signals are available regardless of the scenery complexity setting), most buildings within the field’s boundaries including the terminals, the air traffic control tower and cargo and maintenance facilities
      • VERY DENSE complexity adds detailed instrument approach lighting system models, animated runway intersection lighting, and static ramp vehicles (optional)
    • Advanced, custom-made AI mapping file* including realistic gate and parking spot layout as well as airline gate assignments. A basic AI mapping file without gate assignments is also available as an option
    • BluePrint Simulations sceneries are not compatible with FSX default animated service vehicles

    * AI parking spots were fitted to accommodate specific aircraft models (including default MSFS aircraft) and we cannot guarantee that they will accommodate your favorite AI models.  Customization and tweaking of the AI mapping file will most likely be necessary.  Most gates were assigned to airlines operating at KIAD in the most accurate configuration possible based on current information available to the public. Parking spot specs and gate assignments are available in the enclosed documentation. Updated AI mapping files (AFCAD) are published here

    Software Compatibility:

    FS2004 (FS9) or FSX and all versions of Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8

    Hardware Requirements:

    For FS2004 (FS9)

    • Intel Core Quad CPU or better (Q9300 @ 2.50 GHz fully tested)
    • 4 GB RAM (fully tested)
    • nVidia 9000 series video processor with 256-bit memory interface and 512 MB dedicated video memory or better (nVidia GeForce 9800 GT fully tested)

    For FSX
