Located closer to Cuba than Miami, Key West benefits from year-round sunshine, tropical delights and stunning sunsets. Key West Airport is sat along the stunning Smathers Beach providing you with great views on the wing as you come into land on the short runway. Watch as the waves roll in and sea sparkle ahead of you.
Situated on an island that is only 8-square miles means that the airport is relatively small. Only a 5,076-foot runway is used to get your aircraft into the air. The largest aircraft to visit the airport is a Delta Air Lines 737-700, with American soon to have an A319 visit frequently. This short runway, along with regularly high temperatures, often means pilots face a challenging take off with a small margin of error. Key West Seaplane Adventures is also based out of Key West offering scenic flights around the islands on tourist trips.
Sparing no details, we have included all the buildings, hotels and major landmarks surrounding the airport, along with smaller details such as road signs, benches and much more. Extra attention is paid to ensuring the ultra-high-resolution satellite imagery blends seamlessly into the water and surrounding area. You can even see the detailed reefs under the water near the runway.
Combining our experience of X-Plane development with our love for tropical and sun-drenched destinations, Key West is the perfect blend of visual delight and silky-smooth performance. The carefully crafted airport comes complete with PBR materials on all surfaces in the airport and finely detailed static aircraft in the airport for the ultimate Key West experience.
With the unique Caribbean atmosphere and vibe, be sure to take a Cessna around the island to indulge yourself. Escape the winter chill and head to tropical Key West Airport.
