This is awesome!  Thanks, Misha!

And for fans of the 70's TV show Baa Baa Black Sheep, the eastern end of Santa Cruz Island can be seen in the closing credits of each episode as the Corsairs fly over it.

Thank You Misha!

 

Not to be too greedy but is there any chance that the oil rig platforms just offshore from Santa Barbara will be included?

 

Thanx,

R

 

I didn't have a chance to get around to these, sorry!

Thanks! Any updates to the actual SBA airport itself?

I fly there a lot! 

 

No updates to the airport itself in this.

 

Cheers

Fantastic ! Once again it's a proof of a super custommer support. I don't regret having bought all of your american, new zealand and numerous european products. Hope you'll be embedded in the FS2020 adventure. Thanks again to the whole team. Takes care of yourself and of your loved ones.

So I have just completed a flight in my Aerosoft Twin Otter landing at all "4" landing strips that I have located. Great fun, beautiful scenery Misha. There are three on Santa Cruz Island alone.

 

the 3rd one is just N of Smugglers Cove?   There's a strip on San Miguel as well.

 

@Misha Cajic I'd placed all the SBA oil rigs for FSX + helicopter hops, and it still works for P3D - but it uses the default MS models which are pretty high poly and not very friendly. I can either give you the scenery or the coordinates for all the rigs if that helps. I still have the documentation somewhere ;) 

 

It's fun for helicopters and does help the area feel more realistic when you're flying into SBA.

 

Also - great job on the update!  ;)

This is very exciting--thanks and looking forward to it!

 

Have the structures and lighthouse on Anacapa Island gotten an overhaul as well? I've photographed it before and it's a lovely, desolate spot (and it would certainly be an interesting challenge to attempt a landing there).
