This airport was designed using the latest version of ADE (v1.40) and is made to replace the default FSX airport.

Canadian Forces Base Comox (IATA: YQQ, ICAO: CYQQ), commonly referred to as CFB Comox, is a Canadian Forces Base located 2.5 NM (4.6 km. 2.9 mi) north northeast of Comox, British Columbia. It is primarily operated as an air force base by Canadian Forces Air Command and is one of two bases in the country using the CP-140 Aurora anti-submarine/maritime patrol and surveillance aircraft. Its primary lodger unit is 19 Wing. CFB Comox's airfield is also used by civilian aircraft, with civilian operations at the base referring to the facility as Comox Airport. The airport is classified as an airport of entry by NAV CANADA and is staffed by the Canada Border Services Agency. CBSA officers at this airport currently can handle general aviation aircraft only, with no more than 15 passengers.

CFB Comox is used by the Royal Canadian Air Cadets for glider and powered flight training, training Glider Pilots on Schweizer SGS 2-33A's and housing the cadets training on Cessna 172's respectively in the summer months. An annex of CFB Comox, Annex A "Goose Spit", is used by the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets for CSTC HMCS Quadra where 600 sea cadets undergo training in the basic trades of Gunnery, Boatswain, Music and Sail. Also it trains cadets in three specialty trades Marine Engineering, Shipwright, and Silver Sail. It is also host to the local CFSA (Canadian Forces Sail Association).

Improvements:

Runways, taxiways and ramp areas relocated to their correct geographic positions.
New civil terminal, lighting and parking areas added.
Road ways associated with the airport added.
Default control tower replaced. Airport views are from within the tower when in tower view.
New buildings, hangers, lighting and parking added to the military base area.
Many static objects, including gliders used for cadet training, added.
Doppler radar site added.
Vegetation added as necessary to improve the overall look of the base.

Installation:

1. Copy and place CYQQ_ADE_RWC.BGL and CYQQ_ADE_cvx.BGL files into FSX/Addon Scenery/Scenery Folder.

2. Place the following 3 bgl files - default_terminals_ss.bgl - lightobj.bgl - radars.bgl - in the FSX\Scenery\Global\Scenery Folder.

3. Place the following dds files - lights1.dds - almwht.dds - gray.dds - asr9.dds - ars9_N.dds - in the FSX\Scenery\Global\Texture Folder

To Uninstall:

1. Delete CYQQ_ADE_RWC.BGL and CYQQ_ADE_CVX.BGL and the default airport will be active.

2. Note: The files placed in the Global/Scenery/Texture folders need not be deleted. These objects may be used in other sceneries.

Jim Dhaenens for providing the library of objects contained in lightobj and radars bgl files. You may use them without further permission as long as you ensure proper credit is given. No commercial use is authorized without specific permission.

TIP: when at CYQQ in tower view: go to your control settings and look for the "View track/pan Toggle" allocate a keyboard key stroke to it (I allocated a button on my controller) this will unlock the user aircraft, then you can use the hat switch to pan 360 degrees around the airport, hitting the key stroke again (in my case a button) will return you to the user aircraft position.
