Samoa - Redux

Recommended Posts

This eco-friendly Saturday Flight is 99% recycled from the one done in December 2017.

 

Samoa – South Seas Sojourn

We fly to all of the airports in Western Samoa and American Samoa.  Starting from Asau (NSAU) in the west we will land at six airports finishing at Fitiuata (FAQ) on the eastern most island of Ta’u.

Flightplan & Pilots Guide:

Available here.

Aircraft:

The route is 212 miles, so we should take a plane that cruises with about 140 KIAS.   The most common aircraft used in Samoa are the de Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otter, the Dornier DO228, and the Brittan Norman BN-2 Islander.  These are all good choices but as always you are free to fly what you like.

One nice thing about this flight is that we shall arrive at our destination long before we take off from the departure airport. This will save many hours of our personal time.

It's a lot longer if you go the other way😎

HI36, TAU... Does this field show for you?
According to LNM there is supposed to be a soft runway, 2710x100 feet, located due south of the airfield center
I have tried everything, re downloaded/installed from ORBX, AEC on/of, meshes on/off, no other scenery active except ORBX, pulling hair etc..
All I have is trees and autogen, doesn't look like anything custom in the area. 
If you look at Google Earth, there is an airfield placement, but if you look closely it is all trees too. "Nada ting" there.. ?
Although.. There is a very narrow road (wings will hit trees) to land on to the north of the airfield center - use that?

Let Jeff decide here.
I think that there is no intent to land there. (In the Orbx payware, there is a small heliport. But no landing strip suitable for fixed wing aircraft.)

Jeff,

Thanks for the excellent flight! ( again - heh 😂 ) 
An awesome revisit of a place worth going to more often. 👍 
Photos just came back from K-Mart developing, of course on  eco-friendly, 99% recycled glossy paper 😂

Great flight and pictures. I'm sorry I had to leave early. I only had 2 minutes in the Twin Otter before Saturdays flight so yesterday I decided to read the manual. 🤠  Now that I understand how to control those engines and autopilot I'm going to fly it again and complete it. One of these flights I'll have all my ducks in a row at the beginning. 🦆
