Detailed Passenger Terminal

Fernando Luis Ribas Dominicci Airport (IATA: SIG, ICAO: TJIG, FAA LID: SIG), also commonly known as Isla Grande Airport, is a small airport in
Miramar, which is a district in the municipality of San Juan, Puerto Rico. It is owned by the Puerto Rico Ports Authority[1] and is adjacent
to the new Puerto Rico Convention Center, the San Juan Bay, and the Pan American Cruise Ship Terminal, and overlooks CataƱo. While Isla
Grande's main operation is with general aviation, it is still a commercial airport, dealing with some domestic and international commercial
flights.

The Scenery

Isla Grande Airport is an excellent destination for flight simulation! It is composed of several FBOs and Flight Schools for general aviation,
a revenue terminal. and Army National Guard and Police Department Helicopter Operation facilities. The terminal hosts hourly flights to local
destinations such as Culebra and Vieques Island (also featured by Photorico as freeware). The typical simmer will enjoy hoping into a
relatively short corporate flight from the East Coast US, and once in Isla Grande transfer into a turboprop or small twin engine to their
final tropical destination. Or, climb into a Law Enforcement Helicopter to patrol one of the oldest cities in America, and the oldest under
the US Flag...San Juan!!, where you will enjoy a highly detailed rendering of Spanish colonial architecture, and the state's government
headquarters (Palacio de Santa Catalina and the Capitol building).

Upon approach to Isla Grande you will find the major VFR position reporting points have been modelled, such as the Levitown Water Tank to the
west, the Bacardi Plant wind turbines upon final, and Plaza Carolina shopping mall to the east for the Class C River Transition over San Juan
International Airport (TJSJ). Shortly after an eastbound takeoff on Runway 09, the simmer will find a fully detailed Dos Hermanos bridge and
San Juan Bay Marina for a realistic Dos Hermanos Departure. Because all current VFR visual reference points have been included, this scenery
makes it a great tool for aispace familiarization for full scale pilots, and at the same time provide a beautiful rendition of the city around
the pattern.

This scenery has been developed to work with the already popular TJSJ by LatinVFR, providing for a TOTAL San Juan experience.

Welcome to San Juan, we sincerely hope you enjoy our rendition of old city as much as locals do.

FS Details

Scenery Tested and developed on FSX and P3D V3.3. This is a model intensive scenery. It is recommended that the user adjusts scenery
complexity settings to provide the frame rates desired. There is minimal fram rate impact when used with LatinVFR TJSJ. It is recommended that
general vehicle traffic is adjusted to between 15-25%, and mesh resolution to maximum (otherwise some buildings may appear to float).If
static scenery is not desired, it may be completely removed by deleting the SIG16X_S.bgl file within the SIG_X/Scenery Folder (note:back up
first!)

Installation

Open the zip file SIG_X, copy the SIG X folder and its contents to the FS Addon Scenery folder. Within the SIG_X Folder, locate the effects
folder and empty its contents into the Effects folder under the root FS directory.
Start FS, go to Scenery Library and activate the SIG_X folder. If you are planning on using LatinVFR TJSJ, please make sure that SIG X lies at
a higher layer, otherwise the two will have conflicts.
