This is a revised and much-added-to update of my earlier Dutch Harbor post, adding more Air & Sea AI. It is complete in itself and does not require you to have previously installed the original. New parking is for a civilian freighter, a Coast Guard C-130, and Coast Guard helicopters that fly from St Paul Island.
There is also a daily flight from Dutch Harbor to Akutan that will be by the amphibious Goose as there is no land runway at Akutan [more posts follow].
The official airport name is Unalaska, but a seat booked with airlines will be to Dutch Harbor, known from the tv series as a fishing centre with major fish and crab processing plants. In town the largest company is Unisea, taking up all of what was once Expedition Island and the adjacent shoreline. The out-of-town expansion is taking place along the shore of Captains Bay to the southwest, and here the largest is Westward with the uniform green roof for the plant and the residential buildings for seasonal workers.
The airport has just over 3,900 feet of 100 feet wide asphalt, aligned 30/12, lit, and between sea and hill with two aprons at the southeast end. There is no control tower at the airport, so don't be surprised when you are required to contact Cold Bay USAF for landing permission. Runway 30 has at its threshold a road; when a plane is landing or taking off traffic is stopped by barriers and lights. To encourage full use of the runway the fence is made up of plastic rods that bend on impact instead of chainlink topped with barbed wire that will turn a light plane upside down.
