Quick description:

Grand Canyon National Park Airport is a state-owned public-use airport located in Tusayan, Arizona; located 7 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon National.

What does this scenery package do?

The default Grand Canyon National Park Airport (KGCN) needed some much help with almost zero buildings, misaligned taxiways and a very large chemtrail that went through the middle of the airport. I created this mod to enhance KGCN with proper 3D assets including: hangars, terminals, vehicles, roads, and vegetation around the airport; along with fixes to the runway and taxiway. This is not a 100% perfect representation of KGCN but I hope the additions to the airport makes it feel more real.

I tried my best to keep the amount of custom textures to a minimum (for file size) that was needed to remove that pesky chemtrail.

Dependencies:

This addon now uses some of the amazing models from Mikea.at, so make sure to get their assetpack using the link below or through the dependencies tab above.

PERFECT to fly from, a lot of fun with the H135 🚁
Outstanding stuff! Thank You. Much Appreciated.
Thanks a lot for this really great scenery. I love also the amount of static helis a lot. I would like to ask, if it s possible to add some Papillon Helis to Boulder City near Las Vegas. They have minimum 30 Helis there for Canyon tours. We did Tour with bottom landing in 2015. i ll never forget this experience.
Lovely scenery, great job !
I uploaded the perfect Helicopter livery for your mod : https://flightsim.to/file/10340/airbus-h135-papillon-grand-canyon-helicopter-tours-4k
Enjoy the tours 😉
This keeps getting better and better with each update. Thank you for your work and for sharing this great airport!
Excellent work, I really appreciate and look forward to any airports you might do.
Why did you change the scenery? It looked totally different than your original. Thank you anyway. 5 stars regardless.
Thanks for the update but still no tower that is located on the field?
LOVE YOU! THANKS FOR ADDING THE HELIPADS!
Can you do Eagle/Vail Colorado? I know I keep asking but your work is great.
Great work, Really nice and Im doing regular runs from Boulder City and Henderson.
Both of which I just put on as scenery requests if your intreasted in creating them! They would work well with eachother.
Wow, excellent work, never i been there, and no even i'm american, but i love this scenery.
You should rename your modelLib.bgl to something like kgcn-modelLib.bgl. Thanks for the excellent airport!.
Hi there, any chance you'd help support our Airbus H135 helicopter by making your helicopter spots spawnable?
Love your works, looking forward to any others you do.
Great job. This is one of my favorite airports.
Sorry for not fixing that CTD issue with this addon; did not have a computer/time for the past few months. Thank you to everyone in the comment section on finding a fix for the materials folder. Reply if there is any more major issues I need to fix, I'll be watching this comment.
Renaming the mymaterials folder name to kgcnmaterials and replacing the former with the latter in layout.json fixes the issue. Great work!
Thank you Paul!
This is the first mod I tried but it crashed me out to desktop even after doing the recommended folder name and layout.json fix. Maybe there was some update in MSFS that broke this one.
