Connellan Airports ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
Connellan Airways was formed in 1939 (known as Survey & Inland Transport until 1943) and the 1967 schedules show 114 airports and airstrips served by the airline across Northern Territory of Australia and reaching out into Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland too (including two named Springvale many miles apart!). It operated until 1980 when it was sold to East West Airlines. The airport at Ayers Rock, once their headquarters, has been named after the airline.

Of those 114 airports and airstrips, very few appear in Flight Simulator or in any add-on I have come across. This package seeks to redress the situation with 81 new A&FD files, representing new airports plus a couple of default ones enhanced with parking spots. Most of the airstrips remain in use today serving remote cattle stations and townships but satellite data shows a few to now be overgrown and out of use. A few cannot be traced owing to poor quality satellite imagery and have had to be omitted here.

All files are based on satellite data including altitude, and therefore work best with a high quality mesh add-on - they will still work with the default landscape of Flight Simulator but some airstrips may look a little high or low compared with the surroundling area.
