Here is an improved version of the stock Plateau Sky Ranch. This is a privately owned field, open to the public. It consists of two grass runways and is located just north of the Great Sacandaga Lake.
In FSX, there were no buildings at all, so I added the hangar, and the hangars and planes that are located across a public road. I moved both runways because, with UTX, the road crossed both runways. Now the runways clearthe road. In FSX there were taxiways with hold-short lines, taxiway signs, etc, which didn't belong so they
were removed. I added a dirt driveway, parking area, fuel station, light pole, flag, and a couple of local houses and barn.
There is a lot of nice scenery in any direction from Plateau Sky Ranch. If you take off from runway 6 and follow the waterway you will come to the earthen Conklingville dam and the upper Hudson River.
I've added an extra file for UTX users called Boats.bgl. It will add several marinas and boats in correct locations on the Great Sacandaga Lake.
