Catalina Island MSFS

If Catalina Island ever makes it’s way to MSFS, I have but one request.  Please make Avalon harbor and pier accessible to flying boats/seaplanes.  I want to fly this route with the excellent Grumman Goose available for MSFS.
 

Regards,

Rob

A question or a request:

 

I absolutely love the Orbx Catalina scenery for FSX/P3D, and fly there to the "Airport in the Sky" very frequently.  But is this seaplane base part of this scenery?  If not it might be something to consider for a future update.

I don't believe it is Ken.  My brother has showed me it on his rig before.  I don't recall it there, and I don't see it in the promotional photos.  The pier is there, but the dock for the seaplanes to launch is not.  Not to mention, there are a bunch of sailboats sitting in the way of what would be the "taxiway/runway".

 

Cheers,

Rob

Another question, Rob,

 

What is the date of that wonderful brochure?

 

Ken

There is no date listed on the timetable, but it would have been sometime between 1963 & 1969.  That is when the company used the name Catalina Air Lines.  Before that, they were known as Avalon Air Transport, and then originally Catalina Air Transport.

 

Cheers,

Rob
