St. Helena Island (FHSH) airport

Recommended Posts

My St. Helena Island (FHSH) airport project is almost done.  The entire island is redrawn with correct landclass and SRTM1 (30-meter) mesh, and there is now enough satellite data available, in conjunction with the airport master plan, to properly place the runway.  I have also included AI Traffic for the proposed flights to the new airport.

 

I've still had some difficulty nailing down some final details.  Placeholder frequencies have been used for the VOR/DME and the offset ILS, and I have not placed the airport NDB airport yet, because I'm not sure if they moved the original FSX NDB or added a new one to the island.

 

If there are any FS pilots that have access to this missing information, I would welcome it before I upload this project!

 

Thanks,

Carlyle

ETA is any day now!  It's pretty much done.  I'll dig into the ATNS site and make updates as I can.  In the meantime, I went ahead and created custom scenery for Tristan da Cunha and Gough Island, which I will also include with this project.  

 

Thanks!

Great looking scenery looking forward to adding it and flying, what a unique airport. It's not in the Jeppesen database yet I guess next month it will be added.

Wow, I stumbled across this thread by accident!

 

Looks like so Much fun; superb looking work - very well done indeed.

 

Can't wait to test my skills, may I ask is it released yet?

 

Thanks

Thanks, Andrew.

 

I think everything is done now.  Many more details have been added since the original pictures were posted.  I'm just going back and double-checking details, then I need to write up the instruction guide.  This started out as only the St. Helena Island area, but I expanded it to include a complete remake of Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha (with an optional airport, which will probably never be built in real life) and Gough Island (with the actual weather station heliport), so the project got a little bit away from me.

 

Fingers crossed it will be uploaded by the end of the week, and it will appear in the AVSIM library!

 

Best,

Carlyle

I planned on uploading last weekend...but "life" happened.  ;)  Just finishing up the installation guide now.

 

Shooting for this weekend now, although I hear they've now pushed the May 21, 2016, opening of the real airport back AGAIN for extended field tests due to challenging crosswinds.  At this rate, you guys will be in there before the real passengers...

 

Best,

Carlyle

Still on track for this weekend, but in the meantime, here's a teaser from the real thing!

I can't imagine the feeling it must be to get an airport for those people.

 

 

Looking forward to your scenery. :)

It's up!  I posted to AVSIM, FlightSim, and Simviation last night, and Simviation posted it first:

Very nice! I'm downloading it as I type. Loved the real world vid - a bit of patriotism flared up when I saw it was a BA 737 :)

Carlyle,

 

The moment I saw the eArticle about the new airport I started my version.  Your's is light years ahead of mine.  Mine is "functional"...your's is amazing!  I'll be scrapping mine and downloading yours immediately.  I've already petitioned the powers to be at my VA to begin allowing charter flights.

 

And I assume you discovered the NDB, ST, is new and not the existing one moved...as well as HE and SH VORs.

 

I also used ATN's charts to build mine, a great find.
