#Handcrafted United States Drag and Drop
Catalina Airport ( Airport in the Sky - Now ACE Clearwater Airfield) This mod brings in proper assets to the airfield to make it look closer to the real thing. This mod Terraforms the runway to slope like in the real world, replaces ground textures with google earth imagery and even adds some wild life ( buffalos ) if youcan spot them!
Mod includes:
(foxtrot-catalina Folder)
- Terraform to slope runway like the real thing. - Custom Terminal (faux) tower/shop/restaurant.- Custom "Catalina Airport" Hangar.- Custom California Palm Trees- Custom Wood Fence by parking lot.- Custom Avalon "Ballroom" round building. - Reworked ground textures.- Updated runway to new Repaved version and updated all its markings. - Custom "Barrel" Segmented Circle.- Custom Island Buffalo Herd found at 2 locations ( try and spot them!) - Added a few misc items to make it look more interesting. 

(kavx-aerial Folder) OPTIONAL
- Replaces Bing Maps imagery with Google Earth Imagery on terrain around airport.

  • Version 1.2 January 24, 2021

    - Corrected Windsock issues after USA update.
    - Added night lighting around terminal and hangar.
    - added a few more parking spawn options.
    - Addressed modelib files to avoid conflicts.

    NOTICE: If you have not installed v1.0/v1.1 you will need to download that version to get the "kavx-aerial" folder that contains the Google imagery ( which is optional - though recommended )Just be sure you remove any old "foxtrot-catalina" folders and replace it with the v1.2 so that you are up to date.

    Wish the ship mod I got put more ships for Avalon. That port is always full of ships and ferries. Could you revisit and put the ship docking bay please?

    Thanks for this outstanding upgrade to KAVX... It looks great! The only thing I found wrong with it is the dual reversed wind socks beside the runway, otherwise it's perfect... hopefully that anomaly can be corrected in a future update?

      Hi MGouge425,

      Thank you, glad you are enjoying it. If you have the latest version (v1.2) of the foxtrot-catalina folder you should no longer be seeing the double windsock. Just be sure you don't remove the kavx-aerial folder, as that one is still the same.

      Thanks, I have re-downloaded v1.2... What does the kavx-arial folder do? I can't see any difference if I have it loaded or not...

      kavx-aerial folder updates the terrain textures directly around the airport. The airport works just fine without it, but it sure does look nicer with it. specially on final approach. (see screenshots)

    Since the last Update the scenery crashes the sim on my system. Can someone confirm?

    Such a great add-on, one of the best I've seen, I made a short video where your airport is featured along with the rest of the island!

      Thanks! I meant to mention you were given both onscreen and in description credit for your work, but I assume you've seen that now! Glad you enjoyed it, my specs aren't super high as some... but it did perform super smooth over the island! Are you working on any other scenery?

      nice! New Sceneries? um... yes. I guess I have 6 on my list. but have 2 in production. A bit slower than my previous sceneries, since I made all 3 of my last sceneries in just over a month. I have a bit less time now but I will eventually get to all of them. Plus I'm planning some real flights to some of these so-cal airports to shoot my own photos for reference and at the same time tick them off my bucket list!

      I'll look forward to seeing them! I hope it's Twentynine Palms and Palm Springs! 😊

    This is a beautiful scenery. Location is interesting, the runway has it's challenges, and the custom buildings look fantastic. 5 stars.
