Lake Weir Seaplane Base. The Lake Weir facility (24FA), in Oklawaha, Florida (FL), is a private seaplane base facility. Located two miles west of the nearest business district, Lake Weir covers 6000 acres. The scenery was made with Airport Facilitator X and Instant Scenery. It adds seaplane docks, static seaplanes, medium marina, fueling dock, buildings and vehicles to make landing here more interesting. The real seaplane base does not have docking for seaplanes/float planes. 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.

INSTALLATION:

Unpack the zip file. After unzipping move the 24FA folder to the "Flight Simulator X\Addon Scenery" folder and then add this folder to the scenery list in FSX settings......example= C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Addon Scenery.....That's it.....enjoy.

I hope you enjoy this scenery.
