Thank you for posting this fix. It fixed the elevation issue for me in FSX. I thought it was an Orbx Vector issue, but it wasn't. This did it!! I really appreciate it. I enjoy all the FSDT scenery and still enjoy FSX for commercial airline simulation. Thanks again!

This is still a problem for me in FSX , the apron and taxiways are fine but as soon as I taxi onto either runway the aircraft sinks and disappears under ground
making the airport unusable...

Please check my last message, which has a fix specific for FSX.

I have applied your fix but as I have stated it doesn't work, as soon as I taxi onto either runway the aircraft disappears underground.....
also if this a new fix why is the AFX file dated 2015 and the CVX file dated 2012?

That's previsely why that fix works, if you use FSX. It's not a "new" fix, is the file as it always was in FSX, for years.

So, maybe, your problem is elsewhere, for example some 3rd party scenery that changed the elevation, like something from OrbX, whihc must be treated properly to exclude KFLL.

Has there ever been a fix?  I have the same issue, entire airport is "sunk" down

It's not possible to reply to your question, without knowing which simulator you use.

This thread is about P3D V5 so, assuming you didn't enter into it with an FSX problem, if you read the previous messages, you would have known the fix for P3D V5 has been released a while ago on FSDT Live Update.

If, instead, you entered as an FSX user in a V5-specific thread, if you read the previous messages, you would have known the P3D V5 fix doens't work on FSX, and requires reverting to the previous version of the files, which has been posted eariler in this very thread.

And if you read my last reply, you would have known that, if you still have elevation issues, regardless of the sim, they might also be caused by another scenery, usually OrbX stuf that is known to cause elevation issues to airports, and sometimes come with fixes to undo the damage they did, or have specific utilities to exclude some airports for being affected by their product.

For me, in FSX the elevation problem has been solved by disabling the AFX_KFLL_ALT.bgl in Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Scenery\World\Scenery (changed to .off).
I also use ORBX Vector which uses ABP_KFLL.bgl in Microsoft Flight Simulator X\ORBX\FTX_VECTOR\FTX_VECTOR_APT\scenery,  Airport and runways now display correctly.
