Lake Tahoe Airport (IATA: TVL, ICAO: KTVL, FAA LID: TVL) is a public airport three miles southwest of South Lake Tahoe, in El Dorado County, California.

Located on the south end of Lake Tahoe, the airport is located 6,264 feet above mean sea level (MSL). Its single runway (18-36) is 8,544 feet long by 150 feet wide. There are mountains off the south end of the runway that tower up to more than 10,000 feet MSL. The rapidly rising terrain forms a restricting funnel that can trap the unwary pilot flying a marginally performing aircraft southbound. The airport can be challenging with unpredictable weather and harsh terrain but, still an amazing airport to fly at.  Several aviation magazines routinely list KTVL in the top 10 USA General Aviation airports to visit.

Beginning in 1962 it had a few airline flights: the first were on Futura Airlines, an intrastate airline, and on Paradise Airlines, both flying Lockheed L-049 Constellations. According to the Official Airline Guide, six regional and commuter airlines were serving Lake Tahoe in spring 1981 including Air Sierra, Aspen Airways, Cal Sierra Airlines, Golden Gate Airlines, Golden West Airlines and Great Sierra Airlines with a combined total of up to 24 flights a day. The April 1, 1981 OAG edition lists nonstop flights from Burbank, Fresno, Los Angeles, Oakland, Orange County, Reno, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose and Truckee, CA. Due to budget cuts in 2001, the FAA ceased funding on-site weather observers who had also served as the airport's air traffic controllers. Unable to find replacement funding, the South Lake Tahoe city council voted to close the airport's Air Traffic Control Tower on October 1, 2004. Despite the tower's closure, the airport continues to serve general aviation traffic using self-announce procedures for uncontrolled airports. Beginning in 2006, the airport's former commercial airline terminal building was renovated and converted into a new city hall and administrative services office for the City of South Lake Tahoe. Relocating to airport land allowed the city to counter rising lease costs at their old location near Al-Tahoe. Renovations completed and the new city hall opened in 2007.

AEROSOFT - MEGA AIRPORT BRUSSELS MSFS
Max
This is a gorgeous and highly detailed airport which is fast becoming one of my favorites! The architectural structure is beautiful. The terminal is finished with animated passengers, beautiful textures are all over. The terminal windows are tinted green. Even the tower is fully modelled inside. I haven't tried the VDGS system yet, but I'm looking forward to it. It's clear that Aerosoft is setting an even greater benchmark for realism and quality in their airports.

SIMBITWORLD - A PILOT'S LIFE - CHAPTER 2
Noel
Easily the best ATP career addon for MSFS, or any major current flight simulator. You fly real routes (regularly updated) with real airlines; you start out as a Junior First Officer, and work your way up through the ranks to First Office, Senior First Officer, and so on...all the way up the most senior Captain's rank. You also progress through the airlines, from smaller one and two-start carriers like ExpressJet or BahamasAir, all the way up to the highest ranked Five-Star airlines in the world, Like British Airways, American Airlines or Emirates. It-
's great fun, and as you change airlines, you'll find yourself flying to many new parts of the globe you've probably never been to before...hours and hours of flying fun. There's also a great, friendly Discord community, where both mods and users offer support for new and old players alike. Give it a try; if you've ever wanted to fly an airliner as a career pilot, this is the addon for you.

Textures look great, except for the terminal ramp area, the concrete doesn't show the markings very well in my opinion, but everything else is fantastic!

FS2CREW - PUSHBACK EXPRESS MSFS
Kamaniya
This is now a MUST HAVE addon for MSFS. The latest version has a nice arrow guidance to easily setup the push back and alignment. And coupled with the voice integration and support level PBE is unbeatable in terms of UI, ease of use and non interference with MSFS memory leak and other issues which is apparent in some of the freeware. Hi-
ghly recommended.
