About

Ramona airport (ICAO:KRNM) is a public airport is 40 minutes from downtown San Diego and the beach in California. The airport is mostly used for general aviation, the California Department of Foresty and United States Forest Service (USFS) jointly operate a fire attack base.

As all of my MSFS mod, this small scenery is made from a pilot-eyes perspective. In real, I flew there several time from Montgomery, for pattern training and visit the Plus One Club house. I'm an amateur scenery developer. This mod is made with 99% of MSFS default objects library and feature massive number of details all around the platform. More than 600 objects have been added to the default scenery.

Features

  • All airport buildings have been replaced: hangars, FBO's, Air Attack Base, Classic Rotors museum, all external fences and gates, fuel island, executive hangar, airport beacon...
  • All new and very specific taxiway signs (look a the blue one at the Air Attack Base)
  • Adjustement of all taxiway lines
  • FBO's Chuck Hall Aviation, CruiseAir Aviation and Pacific Exec Aviation rebuild
  • Replacement of 90% autogen buildings by MSFS Library. Very few are the AI autogenerated buildings by Shark.AI / MSFS engine. All others have been replaced by a more appropriate one from the MSFS library (see remark below).
  • 600+ objects to create life: objects from library but also handmade signs and banner on buildings. Caution: due to the vaste amount of detail, this scenery may impact your fps.
  • Custom made Control Tower build by BullfrogSim
  • Reveal of all helipads (including the north helipad not open to pub ;) reserved for Air Attack Base
  • Reveal of Segmented Circle/Windsock south side close to CruiseAir
  • Reveal of Compass Rose
  • Redesign of Fire Attack Base apron with trace of fire retardand. This scenery can't wait for a Grumman S2 Tracker!
  • Replacement of windsocks
  • Replacement of PAPI (2 lights, P2L)

History of the airport and background

In 1943 the U.S. Navy built a small, dusty airstrip at what is now the Ramona Airport. In 1956, the facility was conveyed to San Diego County and the airport has now grown to become the aviation center for community service to San Diego's inland and mountain communities. The Ramona Airport is the third busiest facility in the County’s system.

The Ramona Air Attack Base is located in the CAL FIRE San Diego Unit and was established in 1957 by the then California Division of Forestry, making it the oldest Air Attack Base in the Department’s system. In 1960, the US Forest Service set up and operated from Ramona, separate from CDF, until 1966 when the agencies integrated and Ramona became a jointly operated base. Ramona responds to an average of 450 calls per year. On average, the base pumps 850,000 gallons of retardant a year. Ramona has a possible peak output of 250,000 gallons of retardant each day. The base’s direct protection area encompasses over 1.4 million acres for CAL FIRE, 300,000 for the US Forest Service, and covers all of San Diego County.

Uncomplicated airspace, available services, ideal climate and proximity to North County business and recreation centers make Ramona Airport an ideal destination for work or pleasure. Serving every type of aircraft from home-built experimental to corporate jets, the Ramona Airport is home to a fully staffed air traffic control tower, three full-service Fixed Base Operators (FBOs) (Pacific Exec Aviation, Chuck Hall Aviation and CruiseAir Aviation) an avionics center, an aircraft service center, nine aviation businesses, a full-time airport manager and the world's only helicopter museum with operational helicopters (Classic Rotors).

How to install? Unzip the file into your Community folder. Keep the folder structure from the zip (\AirportServices \ContentInfo, \MaterialLibs, \scenery, layout.json and manifest.json at the root directory). Once installed go to KRNM as usual, the scenery is overlayed over the existing default one.

If you love the San Diego area, you should also consider my other sceneries:

Remarks

  • You need to have World Update II (USA) installed. As the main building behind the tank of the Air Attack Base, as well as long hangars on west side, are building from Friday Harbor (KFHR) free scenery from Microsoft/Asobo.
  • A big thank you to Bullfrogsim for allowing me to use his fully customized control tower!

Always 5 stars for you work. You make legit payware level freeware and its amazing. There are people who charge like 20 dollars for complete garbage and you blow them completely out of the water.

I have a floating "CHUCK HALL AVIATION" sign on one of the ramps. Appears I'm missing some of the T-hangars, plus the other building from the FHR library.

Edit: I do have the World Update with Friday Harbor installed.

Really enjoyable rendition of KRNM. I fly here often, and did my student towered solo here when I was training. Really is nice to have it in the sim. Please consider doing F70, and KHMT!

FYI, at certain distances there is a missing texture (it's showing as pink) on the vehicle parked next to the hanger under the "Ramona Air Attack Base / Aerial Firefighting Excellence Since 1967" sign. I noticed when I started cold and dark from Parking spot 5.

I'm a little confused as in the dependencies tab it's linked to a bush trip addon?

Finally got a chance to check this out and it looks amazing! Great job!

Just a couple nitpicks: there are two planes in the northeast corner that have wings through each other's cabins; the pink (is it fire retardant?) stains near the CalFire station should be a dirty brownish-orange; there are a few places where fences on the perimeter of the airport are missing.

But seriously, it looks great.

Fantastic work!

I hope you make more. This is going to be one of my favorites for MSFS!

I like it better than most my payware sceneries!

Strong 5 Stars!

I don't see the main building behind the refueling tank of Air Attack area

You need to have the World Update II (USA) installed as this building, as well as the long hangars on west side of airport, are material from KFHR free scenery (Friday Harbor) from Asobo/Microsoft.
