  1. Having unknowingly loaded the wrong Catalina, I dispatched it to the Bin & brought forth the correct Catalina, Orbx's version. A few shots from around the Airport. TTM (MSFS) Ken & Tim do some of their best detail work behind buildings. I can confirm the waste & recycle bins are genuine Waste Management items. The 2 door building behind is probably chiller storage. The blue car is a Dodge Challenger SRT, perhaps a Hellcat? The question is, is the lady on the right The Lady In Red? I did not realize Bison were on Catalina Island Interestingly, the red car has a Michigan number plate. Looking in from the West.
  2. P3D + ORBX KAVX + A2A + ASCA = unparalleled realism (lovely colors, lovely textures, lovely water, lovely clouds, lovely aircraft behavior, really nothing to dislike here).
  3. Another marvel sceney to discover in California not far from the coast of LA: Back to my plane for returning to mainland
  4. West to east was done in the P-51. East to west was started in the C172, had a couple of legs done in the C182, but mostly by Comanche, hopping via freeware airports. This is the last leg: Morongo Resort Shut down on Santa Catalina Island My next mission is up the west coast, via Orbx airports of course.
  5. Hello Everyone, I uploaded a YouTube video of a FSX Tour of KAVX. It is a helicopter tour of Catalina: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBoBeDtwSW0 The helicopter is freeware:from www.Hovercontrol.com and www.flightsim.com-RED-AS332L2 by Dirk Fassbender and Hauke Keitel.

  6. "You may end your call, I am already here." Maybe it gets too noisy anyway. Let´s go down to the coast and watch the tourists arrive. Oh, you like a drink? Or a more exclusive one? Watch out, @Jack Sawyer is here with his new submarine. The southern "serpentines" of Catalina Island (Pebbly beach quarry)... ... and the west coast. Two Harbors. Another option for a rest. The northwesterly tip of the island... ... and back we go. Here is your navigation aid, mates. Not that you lose orientation while talking to your passengers.
  7. I have been meaning to do a flight around the coastline of Catalina, so what better aircraft than the Helldiver. Quite a few caps as it is an excellent piece of scenery. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. BTW this is the F8C Helldiver from the 1920s!
  8. ... in a Lockheed Electra Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  9. Like the title says - Not sure I should use "real weather" around Catalina - it always seems to be shrouded/clouded
  10. Welcome to KAVX Catalina Airport, the Airport in the Sky! This project forms the 4th experience package created by Tim Harris and Ken Hall, following up after the highly popular South Pacific based Papua New Guinea and Samoan experience packages of AYPY, NSTU and TAP, we finally arrive in the United States of America to develop the world famous island of Santa Catalina, and the Airport in the Sky Features: Entire island of Santa Catalina HD rendition of KAVX Catalina Airport HD rendition of Pebbly Beach heliport and Wrigley Marine Science center helipad Beautiful crisp 7cm and 30cm photoreal Sharp accurate 5m terrain mesh that combines with the photoreal to show off all the terrain features perfectly Pristine autogen all lovingly hand-annotated...tree by tree covering the entire island! The city of Avalon modeled in great detail, including the Catalina Casino, The Green Pier, Tuna club, yacht club, Antonio's Pizza and Caberet and many other well known buildings Countless piers, docks and harbors located all around the island to moor up a boat or seaplane Stand alone product - only requires the Orbx libraries Coming very very soon, so prepare your favorite aircraft, seaplane, boat, ship, car (or even hiking boots!) and get ready to get out there and experience Catalina Island in true Orbx style!!! A map the island And a sample of just some of the little hidden treasures scattered around the island

  12. Taling some close looks from Catalina, depart from L11 Avalon and a quick stop for . . .
  13. A few shots from recent flights and buys. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
  14. A continuation of my post this morning. No payload and only 10% fuel. 1. Using Shift+P to make the most of every inch of runway. 2. The port outrigger is nearly on the taxi way. 3. Pedal to the metal and take off depends on runway length not speed. 4. We are off and airborne. 5. FS9 model with 744 2d flight deck and RB.211 engines sound. Sounded very impressive from the tower. 6. Now we have to rendezvous with the air tanker as 10% of fuel won't get us very far. 7. I like this shot from the tower, plenty of zoom required. 8. I think I have woken the whole island this morning. 9. Now over Oxnard, my starting point for many SCA flights. 10. Now full of fuel after meeting the KC-97, oh did you miss it? 11. Next stop Elmendorf for another fuel stop. A step back in time with the 2D cockpit, and we used to think that was so good!
  15. I have already found 2 herds of Bison and I have been told there are still some more to find. These are very timid so we will have to creep up on them very quietly. 1. I think there are some up here, we shall approach them using the bushes for cover. 2. I don't think we were heard scrambling up the rocky hill side. 3. Very close now, I think they are just around here. 4. There, an M-4 Bison. 5. It must be a common sight here as the three bods by the Dakota don't appear too interested. 6. Ah, now I know why, one of them just said, "how an' the hell are we going to get this bloody great thing out of here."
  16. Having a flight around some of the mountains on Catalina Island. 1. On the wrong side of the fence looking through the barbely wire. 2. Up and away in the usual uncontrolled fashion. No sign of the C-47 I put off the end of the runway last night 3. Better keep clear of the tall palms. 4. Now under control and admiring just how good the airport scenery is. 5. No items left off the hangar roof. 6. Tea for 2. 7. The beacon at Mount Banning. 8. An anonymous aerial just down the road. 9. Another one at Black Jack Mountain. 10. Radio KRBT which sits on KRBT Station Road! 11. Another anon communications tower which is close to the Wrigley Reservoir. 12. The Palisade Cliffs rise 1500 ft above the ocean. 13. The Catalina Island Conservancy at McGee Lake. 14. A successful landing and time for a wander. Absolutely first class scenery, and I have only covered a small part of the island. Many thanks to Ken and Tim for this beautiful piece of work. You have my permission to have the rest of the week off until you start your next project, that is if you have not already.
  17. Hello: I just tried loading in from KAVX at night and noticed that there is no lighting- this includes buildings, windows, external lights on apron, etc.. Worked fine in FSX...Any thoughts?
  18. I love the static group with the DC-3 ... but as I was puttering past them in my trusty little C-172, I thought "what the heck!!!"? So ... a couple of minutes later ... Adam.
  19. For anyone that's wondering, the default FSX Trike works great in P3Dv3! If you still have FSX, just copy over the Simobjects Aircreation_582SL folder and off you go! Adam.
  20. KAVX Catalina Airport, Nemeth Designs AS-355 1_ 2_ 3_ Cheers, Voyager
  21. Someone said that a slow platform was best for scenery viewing...I agree. Aerosoft's Falcon Ultralight is a terrific way to see (and spit on) the scenery...(tried to hit one of the boats at the coast...much harder than it looks.)
