Hollywood Airport (ICAO: SLHA) is a major, dual-runway, public intercontinental airport. Built primarily in the 'Santa Catalina' region (with additional facilities in adjoining 'Hollywood'), the airport is strategically located at the western edge of the Blake Sea and is consistently the busiest airport in Second Life. Hollywood is also home to the SLCG Santa Catalina Station.

Landing Advisories

  • High volume traffic advisory: Periods of high aircraft traffic of various kinds occur throughout the day. Check the region before approaching when possible.
  • Slow rez advisory: Due to the large number of vendors and facilities on location, this airport may take longer to load than many. Pre-landing flyover to cache objects is recommended.

Background

Hollywood Airport began operating in January 2009. Prior to becoming an airport the region of Santa Catalina had been part of the United Sailing Sims' (USS) sailing racecourse. Santa Catalina was also one of the first four 'homestead' regions offered by Linden Lab as part of a deal struck between the company and members of the USS.

Originally a small, single-runway island airport, Hollywood has grown throughout its years of operation into an extremely busy intercontinental airport with dual runways, and flanked by a myriad of businesses along its perimeter. To accommodate increasingly large aircraft, the buildings of Hollywood Airport have gradually shifted to the fringes of the island and additional office and administrative buildings were constructed in the adjoining 'Hollywood' sim (dubbed the Hollywood Plaza).

Prior to 2012, flights operated out of the art-deco terminal building currently situated on the western edge of the island. It has since been superseded by the modern-styled east terminal building built by designer Jetplane Hanly. The mid-sized terminal building contains a large number of wall-mounted avionics vendors, several check-in counters and a lounge/waiting area. It also features two static jet bridges and, prior to 2013, a monorail system linking the building to the 'Hollywood' region.

Although construction has slowed since 2013, Hollywood continued to accrue minor changes and alterations during 2014. Early in the year, a small public park was created in the north-western corner of the airport and more notably, on 11th November, airport management officially unveiled Hollywood's new seaplane base. Located along the eastern perimeter of the facility, and designed for amphibious aircraft of all sizes, the seaplane base features nine wooden docks for lease and a public rez area on the water's edge.
