File Description:
This project was begun to add the new airport (FHSH) to St. Helena Island and eventually was expanded to include a complete remake of Ascension Island (FHAW) and Tristan da Cunha (with an optional airport FHTC) and Gough Island with the actual weather station heliport (FHGH). Tested in both the default FSX/Acceleration and with FTX Global/Vector, accurate coastlines, lakes, road data, and SRTMGL1 (30m) mesh, as well as corrected landclass are provided based on the latest available satellite imagery. Flight plans are provided for the proposed commercial service to St. Helena, and some additional GA and military flights to the island are added as well. The FSX St. Helena (FHSH) airport was created by aligning master plans for the airport with current satellite data and by studying many of the pictures that have been posted as the airport has taken shape. The official opening of the real airport on May 21, 2016, has been pushed back for more field tests due to challenging crosswinds. The Ascension Island (FHAW) airport was updated after I realized that Ascension could receive commercial service as a result of the new St. Helena airport. The entire airfield is redesigned to allow the volcanic terrain to display properly. The airbase, towns, BBC Atlantic relay station, and numerous satellite dishes, radomes, and wind turbines now appear in their real-world locations. Since I was already in the region, I added the Tristan da Cunha Islands (including Inaccessible, Nightingale and Gough Islands) and the Gough Island weather station maintained by the South African National Antarctic Programme. I also added an optional airport (and flight plans) to Tristan da Cunha (FHTC), which can be easily enabled/disabled. The FHTC airport is placed on the only part of the island that appears to be free of people or farmland, and the area is just long enough to accommodate a pared-down version of the St. Helena airport. Updates were created or rebuilt in a manner which carefully aligns airport data with current satellite imagery. Scenery was created using Airport Design Editor X v1.67.5684, SBuilderX 3.13, and the FSX Object Placement Tool. Scenery objects were added and modified from stock FSX scenery to resemble as closely as possible the actual airports. The animated flag model is by Dietmar Loleit, the FSX apron lights included are from the set created by Jim Dhaenens, and the animated wind turbines and radomes are from the freeware package by Ray Porter.
