Ponce (PSE)


 

Not only is Ponce my hometown airport, but it is also the place where I flew for the first time during my teenage years. That being said, our scenery is full of local flavor. From condominiums used as Visual refs, to the bars and "lechoneras" all along Rd #1 adjacent to the airport. While simming over Ponce, make sure to visit the Serralles Rum Destillary, makers of Rum Don Q, just north of the airport.
The airport features realistic apron and taxiway textures, all buildings, the JetBlue fingers, and new runway 30 extension with blast pad.
The city ground scenery was made from GIS Stallite Imagery, for the best VFR experience possible.

Have fun at Ponce!
