KMYF San Diego Montgomery a maintenant sa propre tour de contrôle dans MSFS

En janvier 2021, c'était ma première scène "développée" avec le Scenery Editor gratuit et inclus dans MSFS, dès la première version. Une vraie avancée que l'on oublie facilement : pouvoir placer des objets en mode WYSIWIG (What You See Is What You Get) et en temps réel directement dans le décor du simulateur, le compiler puis le partager (merci flightsim.to) est une révolution.

A force de lecture de tutoriaux, d'essais et de persévérance, des non-développeurs comme moi, ont pu améliorer leurs terrains fétiches. En plus, la semaine dernière un membre de flightsim.to m'a proposé de créer les tours de contrôle pour 2 de mes scènes, Ramona (KRNM) et l'autre terrain de San Diego (Montgomery Field, KMYF), plus fréquenté que KSAN l'international. Je les ai reçu dans la foulée.

1 an après la première version, j'en ai aussi profiter pour rajouter des panneaux spécifiques de taxiways que je sais faire maintenant manuellement.

La communauté autour de MSFS n'a de cesse de m'émerveiller.

As all of my MSFS mod, this small scenery is made from pilot-eyes perspective. I flew there several time for pattern training and stops at Plus One Club house, and I'm an amateur scenery developer. This mod is made with 99% of MSFS default objects library. Download for free at : https://flightsim.to/d/vbazillio/ramona-krnm

History and background of the airport 

In 1943 the U.S. Navy built a small, dusty airstrip at what is now the Ramona Airport. In 1956, the facility was conveyed to San Diego County and the airport has now grown to become the aviation center for community service to San Diego's inland and mountain communities. The Ramona Airport is the third busiest facility in the County’s system.

Aerial view of Air Attack Base

The Ramona Air Attack Base is located in the CAL FIRE San Diego Unit and was established in 1957 by the then California Division of Forestry, making it the oldest Air Attack Base in the Department’s system. In 1960, the US Forest Service set up and operated from Ramona, separate from CDF, until 1966 when the agencies integrated and Ramona became a jointly operated base. Ramona responds to an average of 450 calls per year. On average, the base pumps 850,000 gallons of retardant a year. Ramona has a possible peak output of 250,000 gallons of retardant each day. The base’s direct protection area encompasses over 1.4 million acres for CAL FIRE, 300,000 for the US Forest Service, and covers all of San Diego County.

View of Ramona tower control

Uncomplicated airspace, available services, ideal climate and proximity to North County business and recreation centers make Ramona Airport an ideal destination for work or pleasure. Serving every type of aircraft from home-built experimental to corporate jets, the Ramona Airport is home to a fully staffed air traffic control tower, three full-service Fixed Base Operators (FBOs) (Pacific Exec Aviation, Chuck Hall Aviation and CruiseAir Aviation) an avionics center, an aircraft service center, nine aviation businesses, a full-time airport manager and the world's only helicopter museum with operational helicopters (Classic Rotors).
