#Handcrafted United States Drag and Drop
KEMT - El Monte Airport (San Gabriel Valley Airport) is a well known and loved little airport(my home airport) I've completely rebuilt it from scratch to better match the real airport. I've added a custom terminal/restaurant(Annia's Kitchen) a few of the FBO's based at El Monte and a few items unique to KEMT and it surrounding area.


Items added:
- Custom main parking lot area- Custom Rotating Beacon - Custom Terminal/Restaurant(Annia's Kitchen)- Custom Billion Air hangar- Custom KEMT control tower- Custom Holdshort "Fly Quietly" sign off RWY 19- Custom Water Tower SW of the airport - Custom T-hangers North on the airfield. - Custom Cinder Block wall around the airport and across the wash to break up the ugly autogen homes. - Repainted all taxiways to match older markings before the airport was repaved and updated in these past 3 years. - Updated taxiway/runway signs to match real position. - Socal Flying Club Hangar added- Rebuilt Runway and painted the larger numbers


Known Issues in v1.0:- KEMT's runway is pretty broken and suffers from some invisible glitch that flips your plane about halfway down the runway. I've attempted to fix this issue with terraforming part of     the runway with the issue. This made the runway "usable" but not accurate. I will update as the SDK tools are updated and improved or if the glitched is fixed by MS. 
- Runway edge lights on the left side of RWY 19 are glitchy and don't always fully populate.

Pretty empty over here.

  • Version 1.1 January 24, 2021

    - Parking spots added
    - Modelib files updated to not conflict with default files.


    Unfortunately no progress on the runway fixes from Asobo. I've put in a bug ticket, but have little hope it will be addressed anytime soon if ever.

    Loving your sceneries, is there anyway you can do a great looking Half Moon Bay ???

    btw there is a little bump / hill in the middle of the runway, no idea if you are aware of it.

    Awesome! I love this and Catalina! One request... KCPM (Compton/Woodley) please! I always fly out from that airport in MSFS2020. Thank you!

      Glad you're enjoying it! Thinking of flying into KCPM soon in real life, maybe I'll take some reference shots for a future scenery!

      Thank you for considering this. It's an important little airport for the GA pilots in the Los Angeles area.

    This scenery contains modellib.bgl which conflicts as per Asobo's recommendations. See the section here on CTD's being caused by scenery and how to fix it. Could you fix it please? https://forums.flightsimulator.com/t/scenery-creators-please-move-or-rename-your-modellib-bgl/307563

    Great scenery. Thank you!! I do wish you could add some parking in time. Have you noticed the floating cars and the Cub is parked with it's tail in the air. I have screen shots if needed. Not sure how I would post them to you?

    Great job!!! Really enjoying your sceneries. Thank you

      Hi, glad you're enjoying the sceneries. I'm not sure what is happening with the floating cars, I'm not seeing that issue. Its a bit frustrating that the experience isn't consistent with all simmers. If you have screenshots you can just email them to me, and I can take a look if there is something I can fix I will.

      This is a problem with FS, not with your mod; I've tried another KEMT mod as well as the regular one from MS/ASOBO and they all have flying cars nearby.

      I think it's related to where the airport is (right next to the river) and it's misinterpreting where the roads' surfaces should be (an probably why there's an invisible wall halfway down the runway -- this seems fixed in the latest versions of MSFS, though.

    This is an absolutely beautiful rendition of El Monte, the only issue I have is that I'm not seeing any parking slots on the ramp in the World View. I'm curious if this is on my end or if it was intended.

      Hi, KEMT was my first Airport for learning the SDK, I wasn't sure how to add parking spots, but I learned with the other airports I made so I will add them to KEMT in an update soon.

      Awesome, I had a feeling that's what it was because your other fields had them. Again, great work my man, keep it up! I cant wait to see more SoCal!

    Thank you! This is my home airport and where I did most of my training for my PPL. So I wanted to give it more love than it got by default. just wish the Runway issue will be fixed! This was my first dive into the SDK so learned a lot, might go back and up the quality of some of these as time allows, but glad you can enjoy!
