About Sacramento International Airport
Formerly known as Sacramento Metropolitan Airport, Sacramento International Airport serves as the central hub for the vicinity of California’s capital. For tourists, it is also the main gateway to some attractions, such as Heavenly Mountain Resort, Lake Tahoe or Yosemite National Park.
The airport opened in 1967 with only one 2620-metre-long runway. Currently, the airport offers two parallel runways capable of serving category C aircraft. Some of the leading destinations for virtual pilots to enjoy are Guadalajara with Aeroméxico, Toronto with Air Canada and various hubs across the US with their flagship carriers.

There are custom, detailed ground markings and textures across the whole scenery, dynamic airport lighting, terminal interior and ortho imagery for the airport’s vicinity. Speaking of the animations, there are animated jetways with custom sounds, creating an even better immersion for all virtual pilots. There is also animated airport train and custom airport clutter, ground services and taxiway signs.
