I would like to suggest making ‘‘through’’ stands that are very usual for the regional airports in Europe. These ‘‘through’’ stands connect to a taxiway on both sides of the stand, so the aircraft doesn’t require a pushback in order to leave the stand.
These kind of stands are loved by the low-cost carriers as they usually cost less for the airline and also takes less time during the departure.
This particular image is from Vilnius International Airport, but many other regional airports, like Riga, Hamburg, Prag, Budapest etc have a number of these stands as well.
I think no remodelling of current stands is necessary. If only there were a possibility to connect another taxiway in front of the stand, and of course, the aircraft recognizing it, current medium stands would work perfectly!
This would add to realistic builds of regional airports, especially now, when we only have small and regional jets available in the game.
