Hope you didn't think this CJ was dead! Figured out the problem. One of the many GLR stations I downloaded contained a NAM controller, which is what caused the NAM to stop working which is why I killed the journal and focused on others. Long story short, fixed it and so this CJ is up and running once more! In the meantime, have a new region view:

Fig 9.1 The colony of Pandora in all its humble glory. The Bureau of Transportation decided that the meager airport simply would not do and insisted on a larger one to be built. This entry will focus on that expansion.
Fig 9.2 This is what the airport USED to look like. Very poor in quality and very limited range since only small planes could navigate to the terminal. The lack of sea-walls combined with hasty construction also presents a serious threat in the form of erosion, which became a problem for the airport much sooner than expected. The Bureau of Transportation finally decided enough was enough and that an upgrade was needed.
Fig 9.3 It was decided that there would need to be more room for the expanded terminal and lengthened runway. The shallow waters connecting these three islands offered a cheap way to expand the land for the airport. (apologies for missing textures, but I didn't want to find them for something I was about to demolish)
Fig 9.4 Some cheap landfill later and construction can begin!
Fig 9.5 The new general aviation area. It is considerably small and will eventually be converted to charters only, since a full-sized general aviation airport is being planned to be built elsewhere in Pandora.
Fig 9.6 The parking section. Small for an airport this size since most people arrive by train.
Fig 9.7 The central terminal. Passengers arrive either by train or car, then travel across the plaza to the terminal, where they check in and pass security, before either walking the length of the terminal or boarding a tram.
Fig 9.8 The terminal with a few flights already in service. You can see why taking the airport tram is a popular idea...
Fig 9.9 The end of the terminal is graced by three special 747 jetways. This is the major feature over the old airport. Larger airplanes equals greater distances which means Pandora is a much more popular vacation and business destination.
Fig 9.10 An overall view of the airport. Future expansion is planned to include the islands to the east, much like this one included the islands to the south.
