KSBA - are channel islands airports not included?

Recommended Posts



They aren't included, as in the original scenery package their main attraction was the large photoreal area. Plus, there's no reliable way as of yet to include custom mesh, and since the airstrips sit within valleys/on the water's edge, this would pose a problem with their elevations, as you pointed out.

I came on the forums to ask the exact same question... ;)

Their default Santa Rosa I - Becher's Bay is showing as paved w services, and listed as KISS (ICAO) - was going to bug it with Zendesk.


I haven't really messed with the SDK yet - so it's not possible to flatten areas tagged with runways / taxiways in their tools?  ( ie suppress or modify terrain data )

There's 6 - 8 strips on the islands I've love to fly into from SBA  ( well, 2 look pretty dodgy and overgrown )   it'd be nice to have them in a database so you could start there as well.

I finally got around to taking another look at the islands after the US update - did the data improve with the update? It also looks like they added a couple more airports on the island, or I'm remembering wrong. Anyways - the island data looks good enough that I might get motivated to add / fix / improve the airstrips.

Asobo's airport codes for Bechers and San Miguel appear to be wrong

also @Misha Cajic updated the oil rig placements around SBA using the new default model - np to give you the coordinates or xml if you have any KSBA updates planned in the near future.
