Gary Gale Seaplane Base Florida. Gary Gale Seaplane Base (0FL8) is a real private seaplane base located in Jacksonville, FL. The default base was modified and includes added seaplane float docks and a medium and small marina. Also includes an ADF/NDB frequency to make it easier to locate the base. By Bruce Bouley.
My home airport is Ocala Intl (KOCF) and enjoy flying Seaplanes/Float Planes in FSX. The problem I find is that FSX is lacking some good scenery objects for many of the seaplane bases. I decided to try my hand at adding some scenery objects to the default FSX seaplane bases beginning in my home state of Florida. I have also added ADF to this seaplane base to make it easier to find, since their are so many lakes and water areas in Florida, you can easily miss the actual base when trying to land.

The scenery was made with ADE 1.50 and is in the correct position according to satellite views. I added Seaplane docks, static seaplanes and a medium and small marina to make landing here more attractive. The real Seaplane base does not have docking for seaplanes/float planes.
ADF/NDB: Frequency: 339.00 Range: 40 NM
