X-Plane 10 Scenery--S31 Lopez Island Airport, WA, USA. Welcome to Washington's beautiful San Juan Islands! Located smack dab between the Washington mainland and British Columbia's Vancouver Island, the San Juans are a tourism hotspot, abounding in stunning natural beauty with some quaint island life sprinkled in. The San Juans are a boaters and sea kayakers paradise and whale watching is a major tourist draw to the islands with waterways teeming with several pods of resident orcas (killer whales). It is also a poorly kept secret that the San Juans offer the general aviation pilot some truly awesome flying opportunities. With at least 20 airports to choose from, between seaplane bases, private airfields, and public use GA facilities, the San Juan Islands are calling your inner Cessna driver! Ditch the push button flying bus, jump into your favorite 100 knot airplane and prepare for some island hopping aviation at its best! By Shawn Weigelt.
