About

Qualicum Beach airport ( IATA : XQU , TC LID : CAT4 ) is located 1.8 nautical miles south of the Town of Qualicum Beach , British Columbia , Canada . 

Try an early flight at 6:00 AM in the morning from Nanaimo airport , it only takes 15 minutes to Qualicum Beach airport for breakfast at the Final Approach restaurant at the airport . 

I love that early morning orange light from the sun along the coastline  on the way to Qualicum Beach airport .

And oh , when landing on runway 29 , if you notice , you'll see a couple of people are riding

horses early in the morning too , along the airport fence .

- All buildings at the airport are custom modeled .

- Custom runway markings , custom signs and apron markings .

- The weather station at the airport is also modeled .

- Custom airport fence .

- Add lots of other models .

- Add night lighting .

OK , enough talks . Let's download the file , unrar it , copy the CAT4-Qualicum Beach airport folder into community folder where Flight Simulator 2020 is instaled and start the flight to find out how it looks .

Credit :

- Thanks Ken Peters for the photos . Without the photos , the custom models are not possible .

- And also thanks the airport manager for his kindness allowing Ken Peters to take photos of the airport .

Hope you enjoy the airport scenery as much as I do .

Best Regards 

Minh

Fantastic scenery and works well with the new Canada World Update. Only potential issue is I get two wind socks right on top of one another in the middle of the field.

Thanks for the great work!

This is really nice! CYCD - Nanaimo Waterfront - CAT4... Wonderful flight!

I do notice that the Vancouver Island mesh addon has left CAT4 very bumpy..

Edit: I have just installed the RTMM flatten fix, and it does the job!

Minh, Can you please certify compatibility with SU5? This package it too good to lose.

Paypal or something.
wow this is amazing! great job! I dont really fly outwest that much in the sim but I sure will do so now!
If its possible could you eventually make Muskoka Airport (CYQA) cause the default airport is trash.
Wow! Just wow!
My old stomping ground from the late 90's.
Thank you!
Absolutely fabulous job!! Instantly became my favorite airport over Nanaimo and that one is a real treat as well. You create real character, something that is sometimes missing in even big developers airstrips. Have you considered CYYJ Victoria? That would be a big payware opportunity I would think!
Fantastic job!
I like your work on customs marking ,Have you tried using the "parallax windows" material for the terminal bay windows, this could be interesting.
Thank you to you as well as to the airport contributors.
Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you very much.
This is a fantastic piece of work. I am still trying to figure out how to bring Blender into MSFS.. Perhaps there is a good written outline somewhere..

But amazing work.
I'm thinking AI is taking up too many parking spaces.. I was looking for a nice empty hangar to put up the the night.
And I didn't know they had such hot ladies in the area.. Not great conversationalist it seems.

Congrats
Love this airport. I am too Vietnamese. Khanh Bui is my name. I got my license at cable airport in upland California. Can you do that airport next? Please.
Again a master piece from the best aiport designer ever. Great work. Thank you very much Minh.
