KSMO Santa Monica Municipal Airport for MSFS
A product of VTOL Aviation: https://sites.google.com/view/vtol-aviation/home (updated website coming soon)
VTOL Aviation is proud to release Santa Monica Municipal Airport! Santa Monica Municipal Airport is 2 miles from the Pacific Ocean, and 6 miles north of LAX International Airport. KSMO is overwhelmingly a General Aviation airport, with over 83,000 GA operations in & out of the airport each year. Santa Monica Airport has a rich history, dating back to its creation in the 1920’s. Recently, the airport has been the focus of community efforts to reduce noise and airport operations, which resulted in the shortening of the runway to its current length of 3,500’. The historic layout of the airport can be seen through the various patchwork of concrete and asphalt as the airport evolved over the years. Very recently, the concrete that made up portions of the original runway have been removed and replaced with grass. This is reflected in version “FA2020” which is included.
Also included is an updated Marina Del Ray, which properly displays all boats and docks above the water surface.
This airport is free to use and always will be, no matter what additional edits we make. If you use this airport in a stream or other creative media, all we ask is to receive credit for the airport. Please do NOT upload elsewhere without our permission. In order to ensure that people get the best quality freeware, we are handling releases in a very particular way to ensure that it's easiest for us to manage hotfixes. Once a period of time has past, we'll begin uploading to other sites.
