First airport

Originally founded by Erick Gregan, the first New Horizons Airport was a large, dual-runway airport constructed on a platform suspended 40m above sea-level (with a marina underneath). The airport's terminal building was a modern three-storey structure equipped with two arrival/departure gates. An elevator in the lobby connected the floors and provided access to the ATC tower. For entertainment, the building had a lounge, as well as two outside patios and a fully equipped bar and dance floor. There was also a monorail station which connected directly to the Route 8 LDPW road network.

Outside, there were executive hangars positioned along the western side of the airport (mainly used by role-play airlines). All eight were equipped with offices upstairs. More rental hangars were located to the east of the runways, and to the south and south-east of the facility there were emergency services; including a fully-equipped hospital, a fire depot, and a Second Life Coast Guard (SLCG) station. In the centre of the complex, there were two long runways: 18-L for landings and 36-L for take-offs, and a military catapult system situated between them. For helicopters, there was a helipad located on top of the terminal building, another at the north-west corner of the airport, and a concealed helipad in the middle of the complex. Airport traffic was directed by an automated air traffic control system, which conveniently directed pilots around the facility via local chat.

Zero-th Airport

Note: The "first airport" as referred to above is not technically true. Prior to the creation of the airport in Alphubel, the airport originally existed prior to 2011/2012 as an inland build in Satori somewhere between Pinson and Weisshorn regions. The airport occupied one sim and had two runways crossing in an X, with an elevated terminal and tower between the east fork of the X. This version lasted at least half a year before inability to expand and perilous flight paths triggered its closure and relocation to Alphubel.

2015 rebuild

After several years of ownership, in May 2015 the airport was taken over by Donatella Mitchell. The new owner proceeded to rebuild all the airport and marina, with a new architectonic concept, lively and cool colors, and a feminine touch in all the decoration. Blue, black and white are now the predominant colors.

The marina features an SL Coast Guard (SLCG) base, two ramps for seaplanes and a small area for docking boats, with a guest dock.

For some years, New Horizons Airport has had an ATC bot for use in the aviation role play, but this feature was discontinued under the new management.
