This will chronicle the evolution of SGP. I will update the thread when the airport has reached the next major milestone.
Phase 1: True Beginnings
The first phase involved building an all GA airport, then using existing stands to transition it into a small regional airport.
As you can see, construction for the terminal was underway.
Now the terminal was built and had all the facilities you would expect from a world-class airport, albeit on a small scale.
Phase 2: Growing Pains
Now it is time to expand. Unfortunately, the current layout of my airport did not quite support a logical expansion. Fortunately, this was part of my plan. Thus, I built a completely new terminal and airfield.
Continuity of operations was a difficult task to accomplish. It required a bit more work.
A row of GA stands was removed and ground transportation was reworked. The change was subtle but it was important to allow access to both terminals during this interim period.
I had put in the majority of the facilities to allow the operation of the new terminal.
And then I ceased all operations and emptied out the old terminal. The foundation was to be retained for future use.
