Sacramento Region

This region could be a nice addition to IF because:

  1. It contains a large portion of the Central Valley. Which, to my understanding, contains lots of mountains.
  2. A variety of national forests.
  3. About half of Lake Tahoe.

Picture of the region:
Note that the black lines give a rough border of the region.

Cmon, spread it to Reno International Airport. :(

Carson will be very unhappy that he can’t fly to his own civilization. :(


I would have to look them up, which could take awhile. :P

Anyways, the airports up there are:

Arcata/Eureka Airport,
Sonoma County Airport,
and, of course, Sacramento International Airport.

The airport below Sacramento International is Sacramento Executive Airport. And to the right of that airport is Mather Airport (Not shown for unknown reasons).

I will be adding photos of the airports to the first post, so stay tune.

How far is this area from San Francisco?

Not to far.

Apparently, according to Google Maps, this region has around 20 airports! More work for me…

Or maybe they can expand the current SFO region and add those airports and even more, merge that with South California region and add part of Nevada. That’s a huge project.

Well, Global Flight would make that pointless. And it’s a long way ahead, so, yeah…

Global flight is a long way away…

That’s what I said.

Anyways, back on topic.

Well, I found out there’s around 30-40 airports in the region, so I’m not going to post more about the airports.

How do you two know? No one knows, don’t make assumptions… :)
