One of the featured STOL strips, 0VJF – Johnsons Farm, is located in the picturesque Red Bluff area of Tehama County, Northern California. This meticulously crafted scenery includes handcrafted buildings and objects, tailored specifically for Johnsons Farm. The strip offers a 2061-foot dirt runway (Runway 29-11) and a 600-foot-long STOL practice and competition field, complete with distance markers every 20 feet. Simmers can spawn in at various parking spots, including inside three hangars for small planes (Ramp 1-3) and two additional parking spots for larger aircraft (Ramp 4 and 5). The surrounding area provides ample space for landing on neighboring properties, thanks to Cletus Johnson’s friendly agreements with the neighbors, ensuring a unique and immersive eSTOL experience.
