88NV  Burning Man

This airport is a temporary airport centered around Labor Day each year in the Black Rock Desert of NW Nevada. In 2015 there were numerous charters using large multi-engine (large for a playa surface runway anyway) turbo-prop and some smaller jets and many luxury helicopters.  ATC in Reno is very busy during the festival and during the weekend of the burn, they are busier than Reno or Sacramento.  Some charters come from as far away as Burbank.

 

The runways are laid-out two weeks before the event (which ends on Labor Day) and is deconstructed immediately afterwards.  They have their own Unicom and Ground frequencies and are on the Sectional chart (Klamath Falls).  There are days where there are over 100 planes parked on the playa.

 

During the festival, the burning man city, Black Rock City, is the 7-9th largest city in Nevada (depending on how you look at it) and is bigger than the capitol, Carson City.   The runways would be modeled in playa texture.    It would be fantastic to model the circular layout of the city itself with the 100 ft Man in center of it all.   If one could animate the ubiquitous flames at night this airport would be extremely popular.  Animated Art Cars would be a hoot!

 

I have a direct connection to airport staff and could provide detailed information if needed.

 

And here's a challenge, tie the visibility of the airport and city to the flight sim calendar!   Here today, gone tomorrow!

 

What do ya think?

I'd love to see 39N (Princeton). I fly in there quite often!

39N is in the ORBX freeware pack North and South America.

If you download,you need a other HD,it's BIG. :P

How about KSYR (Syracuse Hancock International, NY) and KSFB (Orlando Sanford International, FL)!  Would love to see these airports in greater detail.

This interested me since the list includes my home base at Easton, Maryland, KESN. So I downloaded and installed the package and with anticipation opened a flight at KESN. Noted the .bgl for KESN was quite small. Appears to be some nice cleanup of the runways, taxiways, and parking areas, with some static automobiles and aircraft. Nice rendition of the Easton control tower. But that's it! Absolutely no buildings or structures other than the tower. Even the FSX default scenery has some hangars and non-descript buildings. Am I doing something wrong?

KCKB Clarksburg, WV has been updated many times in the past few years. I would love to see an updated KCKB file

Hi, everyone!

 

We'd like to sincerely apologize for disappearing over the past few months. All three of us have been set back on a physical state, leaving us "sidelined" for a bit... but that's a story for another time. 

 

Anyways, we have looked at all the requests and will narrow the list down to 5-10 airports. We will then put a poll here and on our Twitter account, and the one with the most votes will start getting worked on!

 

Here is our Twitter, be sure to follow us and read all our recent posts: https://twitter.com/ecsimulations

 

Thanks to all and please be sure to spread the word!

Woohoo!  KSYR made the list!

 

This airport is somewhat special to me, having acquired my PPL-SEL there (back in 1978).  Actually, any of the airports listed would be great (although I would prefer KSYR first due to personal bias!).  Please consider this as my vote - I do not have a twitter account, and don't want one.

 

Cheers,

 

Gerald

Sorry. None of those are of interest. Much appreciation for the quality of your work however.

Shame KMSN didn't make the cut.  Best of luck with whichever is selected.

KFXE - Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport

 

This is a very popular airport in Florida and it could use a face lift in FSX.

That doesn't mean MSN is completely out of the question :) We may put it in another survey later down the road!

Is this restricted to US Airports?

 

Whelp!

 

Then

 

missoula airport

 

Boise Idaho?

 

Oh East coast... Hmmm

At the current point in time, we are only doing US airports, but we look all over the country for ideas. Not entirely limited to the east coast ;)

Hello, all!

 

Thanks to everyone who voted. After all replies, emails, and the twitter poll counted, we're happy to announce that Richmond International Airport (KRIC) in Richmond, Virginia will be developed. So as of now, Richmond and one other airport will be "side projects" until our main project is completed.

 

Please continue emailing, messaging, and tweeting us airports you'd like to see us make! We take every single one into consideration, so don't be shy!

 

Also, be sure to add us on Facebook: East Coast Simulations - and follow us on Twitter: @ECSimulations

 

Email us! ECSimulations@gmail.com

 

Thanks, everyone!
