San Carlos “KSQL”
Designed for FTX Northern California, KSQL is situated in the San Francisco Bay area.The airport sits in Silicon Valley and is located close to many IT companies, the most notable being Oracle. Given its proximity to the headquarters of Oracle, some have speculated that the airport code of SQL is a humorous reference. In fact the airport was SQL years before Software Development Laboratories became Oracle.The airport is also home to the Hiller Aviation Museum. The museum specializes in the history of Northern California aircraft as well as helicopter history. The museum was founded by Stanley Hiller Jr., who designed the world’s first successful coaxial helicopter and produced a working model at the age of 17. The museum uses aviation as a gateway for people to embrace adventure and innovation and to explore how the physical world works and how the dream of flight is made into reality.KSQL is home to over 30 aviation related businesses. Facilities and FBOs at KSQL include: Rabbit Aviation Services, Surf Air, Zanette Aviation Insurance, West Valley Flying Club, Bel-Air International, Air West Aircraft Engines, Diamond Aviation, and the San Carlos Flight Center.Ideally situated in the Bay area, KSQL is the perfect starting place (or destination for that matter) of your day trips.Scenery features:Accurate representation of the airportLarge photoreal of the surrounding area including the salt marshes and evaporation pondsDozens of custom made landmarks, including the Oracle headquartersCustom groundpoly – FSX and P3dV2 compliantAO rendering and bakingControl Panel options for FTX NCAUse of most Flow techniques

Original Post: ORBX Forum
We regularly see posts suggesting airports that Orbx develop. It’s often hard to keep track of these and turn them into quantifiable data on where users would like to fly. As such, this month we will be trialling a new voting system. Ben McClintock has designed this voting system utilizing Google Maps API interface so that you can click on an airport icon and submit a vote indicating you would like to see this airport developed. Some general info to be mindful of:-The voting map includes every airport within a current Orbx region larger than a farm strip. Almost all paved airports should be listed, most grass strips have been excluded.-Voting does not give a guarantee an airport will be developed.–Each user has a limited number (~10) of votes. You cannot vote for an airport multiple times. Once you hit the vote limit future submissions will not be entered into the data.-Vote rigging, brigading, and exploitation is strictly disallowed. We will be monitoring the input data in real-time and take countermeasures if suspicious voting activity is noticed.–Please keep discussion of the polling to this thread. All other threads will be merged back in.All that being said, please take the chance to peruse around and vote for airports that you would be most interested in. There is a search function built in if you know the name of your airport but not the ICAO, or if you know the city but not the name.
