Bear Island, Florida for MSFS is the third iteration of this popular island airstrip scenery, which started its journey with FSX back in 2013. The scenery was later reduxed in 2017, adding custom objects and vegetation. It became one of the most detailed freeware airstrips for FSX & P3D, and was the first ESD airstrip to use SODE for environmentally-dynamic features.

With Bear Island showing its age compared to the detail in MSFS, a port from FSX could not be imagined. So, Bear Island has once again been reworked to closely resemble the FSX scenery, yet add greater detail. Both airstrip buildings have been remodeled with higher detail and 4K PBR materials. The imagery has been AI upscaled to 15cm/px, the island now includes a 2-meter Digital Elevation Model, and a few of the environmentally-dynamic features have found their way back into the scenery.

Bear Island is spawnable using its fictional ICAO code: RNBI. A parking spawn has also been added to the hangar where smaller aircraft, such as Cessna’s and Piper’s can be spawned. The main restriction here being aircraft height and length.
