Parker Airport (70NJ), NJ ZipDive!  Download

File Description:
Located 02 miles S of Asbury, New Jersey on 13 acres of land, Parker Airport is a private turf strip located on residential property. This airport is challenging in many ways. For one, when approaching from the southeast the airport is located immediately after a tall ridge, so when topping this ridge at altitude you may not even see the airport over the nose of your aircraft before you overfly it. The runway for this airport is 1600' feet long but it is curved and slightly sloped perpendicular to your roll, so significant rudder will be needed to stay aligned - be careful when operating with any crosswind component! It is highly recommended that you only depart via Runway 25 and arrive via Runway 07 to avoid having to clear significant obstacles prior to landing or after taking off. This airport has no hard-surfaced runway and there is a very noticeable "bump" in the terrain halfway down the runway that will literally bounce your aircraft into the air - I tried my best to smooth it over but could not get rid of it entirely. When taking off make sure you have back pressure applied so your main gear only bounce you high enough to remain within ground effect - hitting your nose wheel can cause an extreme pitch up leading to a stall. Trees close in tight to the runway at the end of Runway 07 or the start of Runway 25, however collision has been disabled with the trees nearest the runway so you can scrape some branches if needed on the takeoff/landing rolls. The author has successfully departed and arrived on both runways in the default Cessna 172 under moderate crosswind from the northeast. This field may definitely require some practice but it is usable!! This airport has no edge lighting, so daytime VFR operations only are recommended. Scenery constructed with use of satellite images/streetview/aerial photos - the author has not been there in person. This scenery is meant to be used in conjunction with MegaScenery Earth New York 007. It is not required, but apron use is minimized to allow satellite scenery to show through as much as possible, and objects are placed based on the MSE textures - lack of it may make scenery look out of place.
