Oakland - Reno / Boeing 737-800 (SWA1191) / IFR

I found a really short flight (28 minutes) flown by Southwest, flight 1191, from Oakland to Reno, so I decided to try it.

The SID was one of those that consists mainly of “vectors,” and the STAR was equally simple. No ATC online, so it was quite a simple flight. The only problem was that MSFS has no ILS for runway 34L, which I discovered on my approach. I had to fly it by hand, but since I was already aligned with the runway from the programmed approach, it was pretty straightforward and I didn't do too badly. After the flight I fixed the airport by adding the required ILS for 34L. I guess it is relatively recent (16R already had an ILS).
