Do you know small GA airport covered by Google Street View ?

Recommended Posts

In my search of a small GA airport for my next project to build for MSFS, listening to (a lot) of requests I received and wandering on Bing Map and Google Map, I discovered that - at least - KAJO Corona Municipal Airport is entirely covered by Google Street. You can move all around (see previous pic with blue lines), between hangars, zooming on details... https://maps.app.goo.gl/zsw4RwvqLqwWdpnA9

This is awesome for me as a amateur developper.

Do you know another small general aviation airports with this incredible feature?

Thank you in advance for your help!

I do not know of any Vincent, but that is pretty cool! And Corona is another locale I am familiar with from growing up. 😊

Sorry for the double post, Avsim forum time out.

I've noticed some airports have a few user-generated "photo sphere" points on the ramps (Ocean City Municipal, in Maryland has a good one on the ramp), but nothing as extensive as the example you provided that I could find yet. Very cool demonstration though!

Can you re-create small airports covered in other earlier flight sims by ORBX but not available in MSFS?  ORBX has a LOT of small GA airports in the Pacific Northwest area which are missing in action in MSFS.

I can't think of a reason why not. A good example is KAVX (Avalon). I have two versions from different developers in P3D. I think I made the same mistake with Vancouver too. I bought so many airports I didn't realize until much later that I had duplicates.  It's the same with planes. I have duplicates from different developers.

There's already a lot of airport recreated in MSFS that where in previous flight sim version. I did my part for the Pacific Northwest (Bowerman). I don't understand why you mention KAVX as it has a free handcrafted version in MSFS (with one of the 2 World Update USA), a payware from Orbx and a freeware version at flightsim.to 😉

For you (bad) habit of buying several times the airport and aircraft... Hum... sorry I can't help you 😉 But can you help me finding the list of airports that benefit from airside Google Street View coverage like Riverside Muni and Corona?

I mentioned KAVX as an example of why it's ok to do another version of a small airport.  Another example is KTVL (Lake Tahoe). It's payware but it is also available as a free handcrafted version which came later.

I was checking out KSQL in Silicon Valley.  KSQL is beside the Hiller Air Museum. It's near another small airport (KPAO) that is available in MSFS. I think KPAO is freeware. I don't know if KSQL is covered enough in Google street map for you to recreate it. In a way, KSQL is special. It's named after a computer database language SQL (Structured Query Language) and the biggest vendor is Oracle whose headquarters is nearby.

Another airport in Northern California that is a possible candidate for you is the Alameda Naval Station. It'll be different since it is now closed, but it's like Meigs airport. Even though it'closed in real life, Meigs is still available as an airport in MSFS.  The nice thing about Alameda is that it is in the center of the San Francisco Bay Area and major tourist destinations.

Of course. Just thought it might give you ideas. I hope someone can chime in with better suggestions.
