Your guide to KSTS
When I saw that KSTS was on the FNF schedule, I was exited, but then I realized that me and @N2628P are probably then only people here that know the proper procedures for KSTS, so here I am, creating a tutorial for my hometown airport. Hope this is helpful!
Taxiing is pretty simple at KSTS. If you are doing GA flying, you would spawn at Gun Club(Top center) or Nob Hill(Top left). ATC would usually tell you to taxi to RWY 2 if you are at Gun Club, so you would take a left after reaching taxiway Echo, and then you would continue to Bravo 2 and then hold short. For Nob Hill, Its a little more complicated. If 32 is active, you would just take a left after reaching Alpha, then hold short. If 14 is active, you would take a right on Alpha, and continue until the 20 hold short line. once you are there, you have to get ATC clearance to cross RWY 20 because there may be traffic approaching 20. After crossing, you can take a left on Alpha 1 or Alpha 2.
Next up is approach and departure procedures!
Don’t worry, they are not that difficult, just follow the procedures and use the right coordinates and you will be fine!

Last but not least is what aircraft you should use and where you should spawn them:
At KSTS, there is only 4 commercial gates, some 20-40 private areas, and endless amounts of GA. At the commercial gates only spawn in American, Alaskan, and United. Go here for a list of commercial routes. For GA, the biggest GA aircraft that KSTS has is a TBM. I cant restrict you from spawning in anything else, but try to only use C172, TBM, X-Cub, SR22, and Cessna 208. For private, use a Citation as that is the only real “private jet” that is in Infinite Flight and operates at KSTS.
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed it! Until next time!
