DominicDesignTeam Releases Charleston International Airport for MSFS

DominicDesignTeam has recently released their rendition of Charleston International Airport (KCHS) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, serving Charleston County with a yearly average of 5.3 million passengers.

It was built in the late 1920s by the Charleston Airport Corporation on 280 hectares of land from a mining company, with help from the City of Charleston in the 30s (they purchased a part of the land for passenger service). Within a decade, the runways were paved and lit up for nighttime operations. 

Control was briefly handed over to the US Army during WW2, but civilian services continued throughout the war. 

In 1949, a new passenger terminal was built from scratch.

It was once again handed over to the Army during the Korean War, with the city and the USAF reaching an agreement that has been renegotiated over time (and continues to this day). 

Boeing built a 787 manufacturing plant in 2009, with the first completed aircraft rolling out of the assembly line in early 2012. 

The passenger terminal has recently been overhauled, with a complete interior renovation and the construction of five new gates. 

Air Canada Express, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, American Eagle, Avelo Airlines, Breeze Airways, Delta Air Lines, Delta Connection, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines, Sun Country Airlines, United Airlines, and United Express serve it.

The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with PBR textures, dynamic lighting, real ground markings, custom ground textures, custom jetways, and more.

It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $19.10, requiring at least 1.22 GB of free hard disk space to install.
