KSBN - Coming Soon!

Hello! Some of you may have seen that KSBN is in the works as listed in the Project Midwest thread. As the editor of this airport, I wanted to give you a preview of what’s to come in all its 3D glory! The South Bend International Airport is located about 2 miles northwest of South Bend, Indiana. KSBN and KFWA (Fort Wayne International) are always neck and neck in terms of being the second busiest airport in the state behind KIND (Indianapolis International). KSBN also happens to be my home airport, and being able to build it in the sim was a lot of fun. I’ve flown in/out as a passenger, pilot, and also work here as a ramp/ticket agent as well. The airport has a wide variety of commercial, cargo, charter, and general aviation activity. We have four airlines that regularly serve the airport:

American

  • Charlotte (CLT)
  • Dallas (DFW)

Delta

  • Atlanta (ATL)
  • Detroit (DTW)
  • Minneapolis (MSP)

United

  • Chicago (ORD)

Allegiant

  • Las Vegas (LAS)
  • Orlando Sanford (SFB)
  • St. Petersburg/Clearwater (PIE)
  • Punta Gorda (PGD)
  • Phoenix Mesa (IWA)
  • Sarasota (SRQ) Seasonal

The airport also has UPS and FedEx on site as well with flights to their respective hubs. With Notre Dame being so close, we see a huge influx of general aviation traffic around game time. All of this traffic is handled by the onsite FBOs Atlantic Aviation and Corporate Wings. Here are some highlights:

Main Terminal Building and Concourse A:

General Aviation Hangars:

Skywest Maintenance Hangar:

Atlantic Aviation FBO:

FedEx Ramp and Building:

UPS Stand:

Lastly, I wanted to share this comparison of a photo I took at work vs. the recreation in Infinite Flight :)

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! Building this airport has been a blast. With all of the airline routes, charters, cargo, and GA opportunities it makes for an interesting place to fly in/out of in the sim. Please note this is still a work in progress and is subject to change!
