Grenada island is 17 miles south of the southernmost island of the Grenadines, Carriacou; there are some smaller islands between the two. Grenada is 18 miles long and around 8 miles wide, has an estimated population of 110,000, and produces a very large part of the world's annual nutmeg harvest. The capital, St Georges, is by far the largest town and is at the southern end of the island, with the airport close by.
The airport is now called Maurice Bishop, but for some years was called Point Salines. The runway is just over 9,000 feet long and oriented 10/28. Point Salines replaced Pearl Airport, which is on the east coast 12 miles northeast of St Georges and was difficult to expand as the runway had mountains at one end and the sea at the other. Pearl is now closed; it is included here but only as a visual landmark with "closed" markings. There are regular international flights from North America and Europe, some of which are seasonal only (Air Canada for instance) and local connecting flights by LIAT and SVG. I retained the default control tower as it is some distance away. In real life it is also some distance away and on a hill northwest of the terminal. Which is why I did not take photos from which I would have made the real one. The hill does not feature in FS9.
