Skyline Simulations Releases John Wayne Airport for X-Plane 12

Skyline Simulations recently released the X-Plane 12 version of their John Wayne Airport (KSNA), serving Orange County with a yearly average of 11.3 million passengers.

It started as an airstrip in 1923 and was purchased by the County of Orange in 1939, which has owned it ever since. 

After a brief period of Military usage during World War 2, it was returned to the County with the condition it remained open for all kinds of aviation uses.

A passenger terminal was built in 1967, with 2,000 square meters of total built area, accommodating up to 400,000 passengers annually. It was expanded in 1974, 1980, and 1982, adding 700 square meters.

Eight years after the last terminal expansion, the Thomas F. Riley Terminal replaced the aging terminal with a 31,390 square meter facility that could handle millions of passengers.

It was then further expanded in 2011, part of a $543 million project that added a new terminal C with six additional gates and a new parking lot.

Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Allegiant Air, American Airlines, Breeze Airways, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, JSX, Southwest Airlines, Spirit Airlines, United Airlines, United Express, and WestJet serve it.

The scenery features an accurate rendition of the airport, with UHD textures, detailed 3D modeling, PBR materials on every building, custom orthoimagery, thousands of custom static objects, custom night lighting, ground traffic, and more.

It’s available on SimMarket for roughly $17.68, requiring at least 678.37 MB of free hard disk space to install.
