Copalis Beach State Airport (S16) in Copalis, Washington (WA). Just a minor tweak of the stock AFCAD to add the beach and a few small GA parking spaces. By Brad Banister.
"Copalis Beach State Airport is a unique airport. It is the only known beach airport in the United States and is the only stretch of ocean beach in Washington where landing is legal. The runway is the 4500 foot stretch of ocean beach from the Copalis River on the south to the rocks a mile north. Since the runway is the beach itself, there are some things to watch out for. First, land only on the damp sand; the dry sand is very, very soft and dangerous. The airport is generally unusable at high tide since the runway is under water. The available parking area will also be under water, so remaining overnight can cause definite problems to an aircraft. Usage is very high during periods of low tides. As many as 75 aircraft have been reported as being parked there at one time. Ground vehicle and pedestrian access is legal, so the area can be extremely congested. Since the ocean washes the runway twice a day, debris and driftwood are possible. Overflight is essential to inspect for pedestrians, vehicles, animals, and debris. The airport is generally open year round."
For installation, just put wherever you put your other AFCADs. I have /Addon Scenery/AFCAD/Scenery myself but to each his own.
