After six months of development, new airport developer Oleg Shevchenko has came into the scenery scene with his first product; a detailed replica of Ketchikan Airport for X-Plane.

Ketchikan International Airport serves the city of the same name and is located one nautical mile (2 km) west of the central business district of Ketchikan, Alaska. With no direct road access to and from the airport, travellers and patrons would access the airport through a seven-minute ferry ride across the water.


  • The most detailed replica of airport buildings and vehicles
  • Detailed mesh for airport area based on topomaps
  • Custom surroundings
  • Custom approach and airport lights
  • PBR materials
  • Animated ground vehicles (Plugin by Marginal)
  • Custom HD mesh inluded (with permission from Andras Fabian)
  • Shading and occlusion (texture baking) effects on all airport buildings
  • High resolution building textures
  • Excellent night effects
  • Realistic reflections on glass
  • Rain effects on ground (works with default weather, NOAA plugin. not tested with xEnviro)
  • World Traffic compatible

From the onset, Oleg's first creation looks solid and appropriately detailed. For its size and coverage, the asking price of $25 seems a tad steep. However, this looks to be a very interesting airport to fly to and from, its not everyday where you see an airport connected to settlement through just ferries. So for those who are looking into exploring the inside passage, this airport may be of interest to you!
