Shelter Cove is a community located on the Lost Coast of California.
I casually hovered over this place in the World Map and some memories kicked in. Was it Flight Unlimited 2? Or some old FS2k4 scenery? I don't remember exactly but I'm happy I found this place again.

The scenery is wonderful, the default airport rendition is more than passable and, to be honest, there is not much more about the airport besides the runway and a couple of aprons. Less passable were the missing details in the surroundings, namely many missing parts of vegetation, some local shops and the marina and usually that's what these scenarios are about.
I also added a small construction site that I spotted using street view.

Sutter County is a nice destination from here as it will take you over the Mendocino National Forest and some other interesting spots like Round Valley Airport, a nice interesting airport surrounded by hills all around that makes for some interesting approaches.

Be careful the downdrafts while approaching (similar to 2WA1 in WA) and take note of the sectional chart and airport restrictions.

    - added further detail to the airport surroundings (missing houses by the side of the runway, a mini golf camp, parked cars)
    - enlarged the lighthouse to make it more proportionate as the real one

  • Version 1.0.1 January 25, 2021

    - fixed "overwrite taxi names" in console messages, this is a minor error due to a bug in the SDK when adding map stars to an airport. Sorry for the inconvenience
