I've returned from vacation and am back in the saddle again. I only managed two tonight, both fairly simple.

 

ENSB, Longyear, in Svalbard Norway is WAY north at a latitude of 78 north - that's pretty far up in the Arctic regions. Watch the approaches, one, runway 28, is a localizer only and the localizer is offset from the runway centerline. It's probably one of those LDA approaches or something similar, suggesting that the terrain out there might just be "interesting".

 

SATR, in Argentina looks like a more garden-variety place with two paved runways and a tower but no other buildings and no published approaches. There is a VOR/DME on the field so it looks like the proverbial piece of cake.

It seemed as if I was due to do an update, so Portland Intl, in Portland ME got a workover.

 

The other two airports, ENBO in Bodo Norway and EDSB in Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden were the new ones, and both were complex enough to require a second plate for the taxiway labels. There's nothing too noteworthy about either of them except that both have a Taxiway India and EDSB has a Taxiway Oscar. In the usual scheme of things those letters are normally not used for taxiway labels.

 

There's a new update to ADE (Airport Design Editor) out tonight with some fixes and improvements. What a great piece of freeware. I doubt I could do this without that and a couple of other freeware packages.

 

I posted a new set of add-on waypoints today; the total is up to something on the far side of 2,350 of them now. Download them from the MH File library if you're interested.

F97 and ETSL were pretty easy. F97 is an odd layout - just when you think you've seen it all FSX has another surprise.

 

LDSP, Split, Croatia is a little more full featured, including one custom building and an ILS.

This is quite a varied set today. I wondered about PKWA when the ICAO code came up - I couldn't place it, and the name, Bucholz AAF didn't ring a bell either. Pretty interesting.

 

U-Taphoa, VTBU, is now listed as an International, but I know was an important US military base during the Vietnam War. Not sure if it was mixed use at the time or dedicated military but Wiki indicates it is mixed use now. It's a pretty good sized place. I needed a second plate to document the taxiway labeling.

 

LSMD, Dubendorf Mil, in Switzerland is an odd-shaped installation, probably driven by the nearby terrain, as is the shape of most things in Switzerland. They have a lot of non-horizontal terrain there.

A small request list came my way today, and is finished. Obviously it was for UK airports. Back to normal random selections, and an update of the oldest file tomorrow.

 

All four of these are small airports; only one has a tower and none have ILS approaches.

Just a normal day; one updated file, KSVH in Statesville NC. We're all over the map with one each in Italy, Japan and Pennsylvania. I'm seeing fewer US airports now since the sequester list was exhausted and replaced with a more... - how shall I describe this - ...a more Euro-centric one. That one only had a few blanks in it and will soon have run it's course too. I have about eight more lists in waiting but don't know which to pick. We're pretty light on Asia, Africa and South America so if one list shows a bias in any of those directions that might be a good choice. Opinions or request lists are welcome.

 

I posted a new update to the Waypoints project today - 77 new ones taking the total to over 2,400 of them now. Get 'em while they're hot at the MH File Library.

All of these with the exception of the Turkish airbase, LTAE are pretty decent looking airports. That one's just a paved strip with a tower and a fuel pump, but it is a pretty big one at about 11,000 X 150', give or take.

DTTJ in Tunisia is on an island just off the coast - it looks like wading distance. It's a single 10,000+ runway with an ILS, quite a few approaches, a tower, a big ramp and some custom buildings.

SBSC is Santa Cruz, an airbase listed in Rio De Janerio. The runway is not as long as the others in this batch, at just a few feet over 9,000, but still respectable. It too is towered but and has a few approaches but no ILS.

KAMA is Amarillo TX, and needed two plates. It's a big L-shaped, 2-runway field with the longer one at 13,500 X 300 - that's quite a runway. There are ILSs to both ends and a long list of non-precision approaches, including a VOR A Circle-to-Land approach and an LDA to Runway 22. Something for everyone. This one too had some custom buildings including a terminal building.

I had hoped to get four done today but only managed three and it's way too late to be starting another. Sometimes life gets in the way of hobbies.

For some reason, each of these three airports have taxiway labeling problems in FSX, either some obvious omissions or out and out errors. The diagrams are faithful representations of what's in FSX, however. I wouldn't want anyone using one of these to find that the chart doesn't agree with the taxiway signs, no matter how poorly the signage is applied in the first place. Please don't hold me responsible for the way the taxiways are labeled.

I did manage four today, and also inaugurated a new list, replacing one that was finished. This one came from a European Aviation Safety Site listing but contains airports from all over the world including some fairly small ones. I wish I'd paid more attention when I stole it to what it's purpose was, but anyway, I'm off and running using it as one of the four standard lists I use in rotation when not working a request list.

The four lists can be described as...

1) An airports list from the standard installation of a payware FSX traffic program (6,940 airports / 1,767 done)

2) A list (not exhaustive) of military airfields in FSX (329 airports / 301 done)

3) A list of the enhanced airfields (AFCADS) supplied with a payware FSX traffic program but not the one in 1) above. (1,364 airports / 873 done)

4) The European Union Aviation Safety site list mentioned above (1,202 airports / 667 done).

Of course there is a lot of overlap in the lists and I keep all lists updated, even those not in current use, when a new diagram is produced so all of these lists are partly done. Sometimes I might find the same airport on as many as four or five lists - other times only on the one it was selected from.

It's a varied selection today; CKV6 is a small grass strip in Saskatchewan; KCVS is Cannon AFB in Clovis NM; KDLH is a two-plater of Duluth Intl in Minnesota; EGHL is a paved strip in the south of England with nothing else at all, no building, ramp, taxiway or fuel pump - just an asphalt runway.

Well, it was a red letter day for downloads. There was a point not all that long ago where the number of diagrammed airports was pretty close to being larger than the total number of downloads. Things have changed a little since then, due to a couple of factors; Plan-G can use my airport diagrams directly now, and the addition of the Country Bundles at Mutley's Hangar has made downloading a lot more "productive" for users, where one download now can cover 40 or more airports in a single country. I guess I should have done that a long time ago.

There were four uploads today, one, the only US airport in the batch, is KNMM, an update of the oldest file, which happens to be Meridian Naval Air Station in Meridian MS. I always thought of that place as the air station they'd threaten to send you to if you screwed up.

The three new diagrams in this batch are in the African nation of Gabon, in France (an air base again - is there no end to French air bases?) and one in China. All of these were fairly full featured airports today but none required two plates.

I was hoping to complete four more today but only managed three. A house call to help a friend with FS stuff turned into a struggle getting some newly installed payware working correctly and took about twice as long as I'd hoped. Some days you get the bear - some days the bear gets you.

These three are all pretty decent sized airports. LIMF in Torino, Italy has a glaring error in taxiway labeling but the error is Microsoft's not mine. I triple checked, including looking at the taxiway signs there to confirm that they got it wrong (a second taxiway Echo where there should be a Taxiway Foxtrot). What's in the diagram is what you'll find in FSX, as dumb as it is.

I forgot yesterday to mention that I've put in another batch of add-on Waypoints to the thread in the Mutley's Hangar File Library. That breaks the total number through 2,500 now.

I'm planning to take a day off airport diagram production on or around 4/20 to update the Country Bundle postings at MH, adding all the new and updated airports done since they were first uploaded. This will probably be a monthly event, depending on how it goes this first time around.

Only three again today. I just ran out of steam. Two of these are in the US; one, KLBB in Lubbock TX is pretty big and went to two plates; the other, 6K3 in Creighton NE, is kind of at the other end of the spectrum.

The other one is EPBY, in Poland and is more or less unpronounceable (and nearly unspellable).

Today was an update day and KCHA, Chattanooga got a make-over. The old version was from 2/10 and the changes were pretty extensive since the earlier one didn't even show any buildings. This one not only has buildings but has some custom ones including a fairly complex terminal building. This diagram also went to two plates from the single image in the earlier version. I think it looks much better, but that's at least partially a result of going from FS9 to FSX.

All the new ones today are non-US, including ULMM, Murmansk, Russia (brrrr), SVBL, an airbase in Venezuela and EHLW an airbase in the Netherlands. Only the South American one is a simple one-strip affair with little else - the others are reasonably complex.

Tomorrow will be the last production day before I tackle the first set of updates to the Country Bundles in the MH File Library. I presently have 66 new or updated airports to add to 42 zip files - lots of singletons where only one file is being added to a prior zip. I don't think there will need to be any new zips created unless adding the new diagrams happens to take the zip file size over 10K, in which case I will add another for that country. Those numbers don't include whatever I manage to add tomorrow - 3+ with any luck. I'm planning one non-production day to do the updating but don't be too surprised if I'm off the radar for longer than that.

Today turned out to be a reasonably productive session. I managed to get four new airports diagrammed. NZTG is an odd one with one paved strip and three grass runways.

FVTL, Thornhill AB is from the military fields list. I guess this must have originally have been a British airbase before Zimbabwe gained independence. There's not too much there - a single runway and a good sized ramp with connecting taxiways to each end of the strip. There's a fuel pump too but no other buildings at all and there are no listed COM frequencies, not even a MULTICOMM.

16J is in Dalton GA and is a typical small county muni, with one strip, a small ramp and a handful of buildings. It's lighted but not towered. There must be thousands like this, just with different details.

Last on the list today is LIRQ, named Peretola, in Florence, Italy. Since Florence is a fairly large city I'm assuming this is not the main airport. The runway is only about 5,600 X 100 and most of that is over-run area with a short one at one end and a very long one at the other. It is towered and has one ILS but I suspect there's a much larger airport to serve the city lurking nearby.

As threatened yesterday, tomorrow, Sunday the 20th, will be a day off from producing new airport diagrams as I attempt to update the bundled airport diagram files posted at the Mutley's Hangar File Library. Tomorrow is shaping up to be a pretty full day with other things too so it's entirely possible that the updates will take more than one day.

The bundle updates went fine on the 20th and resulted in two new Country Bundle files, "Alaska 02" and "Texas 03", both resulting from the preceding file in the series reaching capacity and requiring a new one. I think I updated about 45 bundle files in addition to creating the two new ones. I was out of production on new diagrams for an extra day due to other things. The Country Bundle updates only took a day though it was a long day.

Since returning I've received a new request list for a series of airports in Idaho, most all of them small, remote, unpaved fields. I did a half-dozen today but probably have two more days work to finish off that list.

None of these are paved. Some have a few buildings. Some, most notably the USFS strips, have a MULTICOMM or CTAF frequency. None are within 20 miles of a navaid and so far I haven't noted any published approaches. None are lighted either, which would pretty much rule out published approaches. Not one came close to 200K in file size. Based on what I saw of field elevations and lengths, have your wits about you if you decide to visit one of these.

So, expect a couple more days of similar offerings before I drop back to the regular lists.

This is the next installment from the request list of backwoods Idaho airports. Five remain to be done so one more day ought to see the end of this list. A few of these today had navaids within 20 NM but none had radio frequencies, lights, tower or approaches, nor, for that matter, even pavement.

I thought I could finish off the Idaho list today but had too many conflicting chores. There's only one remaining to be done so that should finish the list tomorrow for sure. In the meantime, KMYL turned out to be a real airport - no ILS, but not a bad looking place compared to the bean patches we've seen over the past three days or so. Someone's going to have a lot of fun at the fly-in that these Idaho fields are to be used for.

I only managed two new airports today, one of which was the last of the Idaho request list. I had intended to include an update in today's batch but got interrupted before beginning it and never was able to get back to it. Tomorrow's another day.

The two new ones today are both relatively big, complex airports. Who knew there was another Logan Intl - in Montana? Both required two plates and had multiple runways and a number of custom buildings. Lot's of work on both.

The update is Cranwell Airbase in the UK. Looking at the old version, not much has changed except the layout and format of the diagram and a few small snippets of new information that wasn't on the old version, e.g. magnetic variation and approaches.

KHSD is a secondary airport in Oklahoma City - not a small place by any means, but not the main airport.

KGRR is the main airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I've been there in person a number of times, including once to see a B-24 that had been flown in for display by one of the big warbird outfits - can't recall which one. I have flown commercial in and out of KGRR a number of times and flew in and out once in a C-152, landing and taking off on the 10,000' X 150' 26L. It is the biggest runway I've ever landed as pilot, not pax. Suffice it to say it was... ample. This diagram is a 2-plate one.

The odd man out in this batch is in El Salvador, MSSS, which may be a mixed use field since it came from the military airfields list but is listed by FSX as an "Intl".
