Background of the Island

San Juan, Puerto Rico is the capital and most-populous municipality in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States. As of the 2010 census, it is the 46th-largest city under the jurisdiction of the United States, with a population of 395,326. San Juan was founded by Spanish colonists in 1521, who called it “Ciudad de Puerto Rico“ “Rich Port City”. Puerto Rico’s capital is the third oldest European-established capital city in the Americas, after Santo Domingo, founded in 1496 and Panama City, in Panama, founded in 1519. Several historical buildings are located in San Juan; among the most notable are the city’s former defensive forts, Fort San Felipe del Morro and Fort San Cristóbal, and La Fortaleza, the oldest executive mansion in continuous use in the Americas.

Operations

Runway 08: This is the Departure runway which all takeoffs are performed on. This runway is also used for arrival but is not the main landing runway therefore it is used only for an arrival or so every hour or two. But other than that all takeoffs are performed on this runway.

Runway 10: This is the main Landing runway were all landings are operated on. In infinite flight this runway may be used to take off arrivals in case of overflow traffic. But all takeoffs are operated on RWY 08 no matter where an aircraft is located at.

Runway’s 26/28: This is a Very Rare Case at San Juan which the runways are operated at. Only happens a handful of times a year which is lead to be called the famous ”Reverse Ops”.

^Note the largest aircraft operated at the airport is a 747-8F

We have reached the end! Thank you for taking the time to read this thread. I know not all Infinite Flight pilots are on the forum and some may not even follow the instructions but I made something that we can all enjoy and have fun doing realistically. San Juan is my home and love when it gets featured on the schedule let alone an FNF. I hope you all have an amazing time tomorrow and make sure to enjoy your flight whether it’s 30 minutes or 8 hours long.

And how we Puerto Rican’s like to say…
Bienvenidos a nuestra Isla” 🇵🇷
