Floyd Bennett Field and CGAS Brooklyn (CGAS). Author: Jim Dhaenens (firstname.lastname@example.org). Ver 1.0 for FSX. Floyd Bennett Field and Coast Guard Air Station Brooklyn (Future NAS Brooklyn). FSX Native Compiled with FSX SP-2/Acceleration SDK tools.
Floyd Bennett Field Started out it's life in 1931 as the first airport in New York City. Between 1931 and 1941, Floyd Bennett Field was visited as a departure (and often return) point for many record setting aviation endeavors by such notable aviators as Wiley Post, Howard Hughes, Amelia Earhart, Roscoe Turner, Laura Ingalls, Jimmy Doolittle, Jacqueline Cochran, and Douglas "Wrongway" Corrigan. The coast guard Air Station was established in 1938, and in 1941, Floyd Bennett Field became Naval Air Station Brooklyn, Floyd Bennett Field. In 1971 the base was decomissioned and the field is currently a Multi-Use Facility managed by the U.S. Park Service. I've attempted to capture the field as she was in the transition time-frame, between 1938 and 1941 . There are commercial hangars as well as Navy hangars, but the terminal building is strictly 1931-1938 vintage. When the Navy took over, they replaced the control tower cab with a more modern design. and changed the "City of New York" lettering on the terminal to "Naval Air Station." The runways were changed and lengthened through the years and are modeled at their maximum lengths. By Jim Dhaenens.
Original models in this scenery are:
All the hangars, the admin building, and the sign out front
Try it at night, too!
Tom Stovall has a a period repaint of the default Grumman Goose that goes well with the CGAS. It's available at the Sim-Outhouse.
About Frame Rates
I flew this area before I made the airport and from most directions, the framerates, although not stellar, were not unacceptable unless I came in from due east and framed the field with the NYC skyline. Framerates did not change significantly with the addition of the airport, but if you insist on flying in from the east, you're on your own.
