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 and is adjacent to the new Puerto Rico Convention Center, the San Juan Bay, and the Pan American Cruise Ship Terminal, and overlooks Cataño. While Isla Grande's main operation is with general aviation, it is still a commercial airport, dealing with some domestic and international commercial flights.
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.
