Colorado Springs Municipal Airport/Peterson AFB (KCOS), Colorado (CO). Includes added parking plus adjusted aprons, added roads and static scenery. By Jim Cook and Dakota Smith.

Following the tragic passing of Shelly Johnson, I was contacted by Dakota Smith (Smith Graphics) about upgading Colorado Springs Municipal Airport for the VATSIM Fly-In on November 15, 2008 in Shelly's honor.

Dakota did the "afcad" for the airport, packing in as many parking spaces as possible to accomodate the Fly-In attendees. He then sent the file to me and I replaced most of the default buildings and added many more. I adjusted some aprons, added others, added some roads, and static scenery objects.

Please note that the "afcad" was designed for the Fly-In and does not provide accurate airline assignments, military parking, etc. As stated above, Dakota packed in as many parking spaces as possible, and assigned many gates to Continental, Shelly's favorite airline.

A second "afcad" will be released by Dakota Smith the day after the Fly-In that will have more realistic parking.

I use Ultimate Terrain and FSGenesis landclass but they are not required. All objects are stock FSX so no additional object libraries are needed. Updates made using AirNav diagrams and Google Earth to be as accurate as possible. All work done with Flight 1's AFX program and Instant Scenery.


Extract the two files AFX_KCOS.bgl and KCOS_JC.bgl into your Addon Scenery/Scenery folder, re-start FSX and enjoy.
