How do I Add a Tower Viewpoint?
The tower viewpoint is the position at an airport which is used when you set your location to the tower. It is important to note that the tower viewpoint is separate from the 3D model that represents the tower. Adding the model does not add a viewpoint. Adding the viewpoint does not add a physical tower to the airport. There can only be one tower viewpoint and an airport although you can have multiple physical control towers present.

Finding the tower viewpoint
Add a tower viewpoint
- Right Click where you want the tower viewpoint
- Select Add
- but there is no entry for the tower viewpoint
This is because there is already a viewpoint and you may only have one at the airport. So if you do not see the entry then you already have one and you should use Right Click > Center on Tower Viewpoint to find it
The property dialog for the tower viewpoint will open. Note that it reminds you that the tower object is different so you will need to add one of those separately. Tower objects are library objects so you can use Right Click > Add > Library Object to place on at the same location as the viewpoint if you wish.
Click OK to save. If your viewpoint is not in quite the right place then just select it and drag it to the correct place.
