Enjoy our first urban area landscape - an airport in front and a city scape on the background.

Airport is available in Unlimited Edition only.
YoWindow Unlimited costs just $9.99.
Purchase is easy and secure (PayPal, credit cards and many other options).
Any update within 2.0 version will be free of charge.
You will also get Seaside, 6 - 9 weather forecast and 2 upcoming landscapes.
Support our project - Buy YoWindow Unlimited.

You need to upgrade to the latest YoWindow build to enjoy Airport.
Download and install it over your old YoWindow.

Let me share some details about what we have made.

In the airport area planes land, take off, drive through.
City name displayed over terminal building.
The wind sock reflects real wind speed and direction.

City lights model is what we are proud of.
We have put a lot of efforts to make lights look and behave good.
In business buildings lights turn on when people come to offices and go out when they leave.
Some people stay at work all night long ;)
In living area you will notice when people wake up and when they go to sleep.
On the weekend people love to sleep more and on fridays they don't want to stay at work for long.

As in Village, there are 5 seasonal pictures.
As usual when it is foggy the landscape reflects the visibility, the distant buildings are hidden.

Play with Airport right now in your browser.

Now you can add Airport to your website or blog - with YoWindow weather widget.

On Mac, Airport will be available this week.

I want to thank our excellent community for testing, ideas and corrections.
Thank you, guys ;)

Airport art - Natasha.
Art direction - Yura.

Hi Pasha,
Is it official version with Airport? If so, where am I to download it from? My YoWindow still does not notify me about new version and I don't know what to do in such case. :oops:

Hi Pasha,
I have a new version with the Airport Landscape at last and I am just sitting and admiring my YoWindow. :D I name "my YoWindow" because it is like a friend for me. :)
Once I mentioned you about a big plane flying close to ground over, you have made many many more i.e.whole Airport that is why my special thanks. By the way, do you remember your one promise for me yet? :wink:
Meanwhile many congratulations to you and your team (especially Natasha)
My observations, if I find, will be included later and in the suitable forum sections.

Very nice airport job! As usual, your attention to detail (cfr the realistic city building lights according to time of the day or week) is great.
As a pilot however, I am a little bit disturbed by planes landing and taking of with a tail wind... Let's make flying safe 8)
Your Yowindow pilots also seem to be guys of the rough kind and should flare off a bit before touch down... :oops:
So Pasha, if you do not know what to do... maybe a little bit more safety programming for the passengers of Yowindows Airlines?

Dear Marc, sorry for the delay.

It was a our pleasure to read a comment from professional :)

We have already decided to correct several aspects of Airport, most of them were suggested on the forum by our friends.
We will take care of plane landing and orientation to the wind, thanks for the tips!
I hope we will make the corrections in July.

We care about safety of our clients /YoWindow Airlines ;)'

Ok, there's something I don't understand. I have version 2.0 of Yowindow unlimited. I want to get the new version, but I can only see the free version and one that I'd have to pay for? I thought updates within version 2.0 were free? Should I simply download the free version and install over my paid one?
