This project adds the booming city of Hawassa, Ethiopia, creates the new international airport (HALA), moves (and rebuilds) the downtown airport (recoded to HALX), and includes AI flight plans for the Ethiopian Airlines service that began April 2016. 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. The Hawassa International Airport was created using information from the current satellite footprint and the promotional video from Ethiopian Airports Enterprise (EAE). Although there is still very little published data on the airport, it is fully functional.
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 v1.70.6042, 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 FSX apron lights included are from the set created by Jim Dhaenens. Thanks to Ron Blehm for bringing this part of the world to my attention.
