This is the makeover of the Kinston Regional Jetport in North Carolina. Located just outside the Northeast city limits of Kinston, it provides one of the longest runways in the region. Kinston is my hometown, and having grown up in the area, I came to know the airport as where we would had the annual airshows or the nearest airport to catch a plane up to Charlotte or Raleigh-Durham. Back then, in the 60's and 70's, Piedmont Airlines provided service to and from Kinston.

There's a colorful history to the airport. In the 40's and 50's, the Navy first used the strip for air training. At one time it was an extension to the other Navy/Marines training facilities of the area. Stallings Field, as it was known for many years, was later an Air Force base. Sometime around the late 60's, I believe, it became commercial property.

The airport scenery was enhanced by overlaying a google map of the area and correcting the original layout of the taxiways, parking lots and roadways. Airport Design Editor was used for compiling the airport while many of the buildings were created in Google Sketchup. I wish I could say that I was in the area to verify building profiles, but I had to go on available photos on the internet and Google/MSN maps.

Most of the models were created using Google Sketchup. As many know, the Sketchup tool does not know specific features of Flight Simulator, including day/night textures, light enhancements, and animation. Models created in Sketchup need to be exported to .dae files and then converted to FSX .mdl files.

Installation:

  • First, After expanding the zip file, copy the Kinston folder to the Microsoft Flight Simulator program folder.
  • The Kinston folder should be containing the scenery folder which contains the .BGL files (2).
  • Launch FSX and add the scenery via the World menu, Scenery Library. Add the scenery by pointing to the Kinston folder.
