About Wilson Airport:

Wilson Airport (IATA: WIL, ICAO: HKNW) is located five kilometers south of Nairobi, Kenya, next to Langata, South c and Kibera. The airport has been in operation since 1933. The airport serves both domestic and international traffic. It is used mostly by light aircraft. Industries that uses its services extensively are tourism, health care and agriculture. The airport has an average traffic of around 120,000 landings and take offs annually. Airkenya and other small airlines use Wilson Airport for scheduled domestic passenger services, instead of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the main airport in Nairobi. Missionary aviation operators AMREF, MAF and AIM AIR use Wilson Airport as their African base. The airport is used also for Flight training. The airport is controlled by the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA).


The airport was originally founded in 1933 as Nairobi Aerodrome, and was used for Air mail by Imperial Airways. The airport was renamed to Wilson Airport in 1962. It was named after Ms Florence Kerr Wilson, a pioneer of aviation in Kenya.

Airlines that serve Wilson airport are:

  • Airkenya (Amboseli, Kilimanjaro, Lamu, Lewa Downs, Malindi, Masai Mara, Meru, Mombasa, Nanyuki, Samburu)
  • Delta Connection (Juba, Yei, Rumbek)
  • ALS (Loki, Rumbek, Juba)
  • Safarilink (Amboseli, Masai Mara, Tsavo, Chyulus, Naivasha, Nanyuki, Lewa Downs, Samburu, Lamu, Kiwayu, Kilimanjaro)
  • Aero Kenya (Eldoret)

The FSX one was not convincing enough! I have tried to make it close to realistic as possible using Airport Scenery Creator v1.37 and the objects that are available for use from FSX SP2 - Acceleration. Hope this will make your stop-over more enjoyable!


  1. Drop the HKNW.bgl and HKNW_cvx.BGL into your FSX/Addon scenery/scenery folder,and away you go!
