From veteran developers, Tim Harris and Ken Hall, comes "The Airport in the Sky" KAVX Catalina for Microsoft Flight Simulator! The airport originally opened as Buffalo Springs Airport in the spring of 1941. It was built by the Wrigley family of Chicago, who owned most of the island under the Santa Catalina Island Company, by leveling off the top of a hill. Prior to this, only seaplanes landed at Hamilton Cove Seaplane Base, just north of Avalon. The Wrigley's kept a DC-3 in the large hangar there. Originally released for ESP platform, Tim and Ken have started afresh with this version with almost all of the buildings redone with Microsoft Flight Simulator in mind. This includes having texture resolutions being increased as well as adding realism with PBR. Also debuting is the unique 3D people models that provide a fresh new look to airport as well as tell a story. Beyond the airport you have the historic seaside destination Avalon Bay which is situated on the southeast of the island. Here you will find many landmarks such as the pier, yacht club and casino.

It’s an airport that provides a lot to explore and discover despite its small size both within and outside its borders, and feels like a lovingly crafted diorama that is easy to recommend.
