Awesome looking! Visited there as a kid as I grew up in SoCal, so it was just a short boat trip away. Will be cool to see virtually from the air!

Looks like the best rendition of this island so far - will the slope of the runway be modelled please?

Where's the lawn mower & long drop?:)

there is a long drop alright, alas no lawnmower, but plenty of cactus. buy a boat for this one, and you can drive from the airport to Avalon,so a 4WD might also be usefull

No lawnmower, Ken? I can not (and do not want to) believe that! A thorough inspection needs to be done, and I strongly hope you drop the green one somewhere for me...

Always one of my most favorite places to fly in the sim.  Man I hope it'll be released soon.  Looks like you guys are really upping your game, there's some serious talent here.  What a beautiful job.

You misspelled harbor, but the rest looks like it is right up to par! 

 

So many have done this little spot, some have done it pretty well, but nobody has done it to THIS level of detail.

 

Truly amazing.

Actually, you, misspelled harbour. I guess it depends which English-speaking country you're from. ;) This goes for the word, colour, too of course.

Very true, and I thought about changing it, but my Aussie blood just wouldn't let me, maybe two harbors  means one of each.

As long as you enjoy it I'm very happy

Wow-wow-wow, absolutely wow. A huge kudos Tim to you and the rest of the development team. I have been very tempted to purchase other payware offerings of KAVX, but could not pull the trigger on the purchase. Then this morning it was like Christmas snuck up on me when I opened this forum, the whole of Santa Catalina Island in all it's living detail that only Orbx can deliver. The funny thing is when I first saw "Welcome to the Airport in the Sky" my minds eye started imagining what the captures would look like. Well my minds eye did not do them justice.

A bit disappointed to see you leave the oceanic area for now, really hoped that you would continue on with another island paradise, still so many white dots in the sim world, especially since Catalina Island already has a rendition in FSX/P3D but anyways with your love to detail the scenery will be amazing as always and probably be better than the rendition from the other developer! But for the next experience package please move westwards again :D

Any buffalo?

There is the Buffalo Nickle restaurant at pebbly beach, there's so much already, but the buffalo will be in an update at some point, we have Jorge back with us and his animated beasties would look better than my statics, the buffalo are a feature and hopefully we can get them grazing before too long, thanks for the interest.

cheers

Exactly.  I am from the same country where this scenery is located, and so I feel like have a handle on how the local spell it out there in So Cal.  And this was meant to be a form of humor (or humour, if you must)  : )

 

Not going to debate which version of our rather scrambled language is correct.

Oh buddy, believe me, I am happy.  You and Tim could have done something in inner (or outer) Mongolia and I would have been happy.
