Pine Island Helistop v1.0.1
Developed by Chris Britton for MSFS
Pine Island Helistop is a utility helipad located on Pine Island, near Fort Myers, Florida. The helipad is operated by Lee County Mosquito Control District and has been created from the ground up using default MSFS objects and materials. Some custom materials have been used, provided by the integration of Emerald Object Library. Trees around the heliport property have been redone for greater accuracy, default road textures in the industrial area have been removed and replaced with better textures, and two parking lots have been detailed. Two water silos have also been added to the north of the industrial park, as they were detected as buildings in the default sim.
The heliport is registered in the sim as 4FD6. However, it will show as an airport icon, not a helipad. This is because a runway had to be added to allow you to spawn on location. As soon as ASOBO offers better support for heliports, this will be reverted to show as a heliport in the sim.
Built from the ground-up!
Uses custom materials from Emerald Object Library.
Overhauled tree placement in the vicinity of the helipad.
