Shanghai Pudong (ZSPD), one of the most popular Chinese Airports for VATSIM Pilots. The coordination of Pudong Airport in FSX is inaccurate, also the Pudong scenery of ImagineSim. However, some add-on scenery files’ coordination is correct, this situation causes traffic conflict during taxi, take off and landing. If there is ATC controlling Pudong Airport, please check NOTAMs in ATIS. If not, please caution the ground traffic. Thank you.
