  4. Welcome to the Goilala bushpack! For our long awaited return to Papua New Guinea we bring you seven thrilling bushstrips all situated high up in the misty, humid and unpredictable Owen Stanley Range, consisting of Tapini, Fane, Ononge, Woitape, Koispe, Asimba and Yongai airports, a trilling white-knuckle mix of ridge-top, hill-side and river-flat runways. Coverage map This picture shows the seven Goilala bushpack airports and their proximity to our first PNG experience package: AYPY Jacksons International + the Kokoda track bushstrips, there is a KML attached at the bottom of this thread 1: TAP Tapini. Tapini is the main airport in the Goilala area and also bears the name of the project, nestled into a large mountain and within a tight valley, the one-way runway is sloped with a steep cliff off the end which all conspires to make this bushstrip a tricky one to operate in and around, for precision landings it features the infamous "Tapini ILS", to use this one must line up the right-hand wing with the goat track following the opposite hillside to the bushstrip, it will place you in roughly the correct position and attitude to turn 90 degrees onto a quick final, but miss this point and you'll have to follow the valley for a while to reach an open spot to turn around, Tapini, being in a notorious location.. has over the years seen a number of crashes, most notably a QANTAS owned DHC3 in 1958 and also a RAAF Caribou in 1968. 2: WTP Woitape. Woitape is nestled in an open valley on some flat ground next to a river and services the nearby Fatima Mission, it features a soft rolling one-way runway sloping downwards gently, but dont be fooled by all this.... its also a notorious place to take off from due to the altitude and because it lacks a handy cliff at the end with which to drop off and gain speed, many an aircraft has struggled to get out of here, so pay attention to your cargo loads and fuel mix...and the weather. 3: FNE Fane. Fane is an infamous one-way ridge-top bushstrip servicing a mission station, with an upwards sloping 12 degree runway, and lots of unpredictable crosswinds and updrafts all combining to make it a terrifying place to land and take off, and with a very tight flat parking area take extra care to watch your wingtips when turning around, and because once you commit to taking off you cannot abort so make sure to runup the engine and make all necessary checks before even thinking about releasing the brakes and heading out and over the crest. 4: ONB Ononge. Ononge is another one-way ridge-top bushstrip servicing a mission station, with a low approach over a little village, this ones a bit more bumpy and unkempt and has a dogleg forcing the pilot to make a ten degree turn halfway along the strip, very tight turning at the end with plenty of vegetation, Ononge village was strafed by the Japanese Airforce in world war two as it was rumored that some allied aircraft spotters were stationed there. 5: KSP Koispe. Koispe bushstrip services a mission station and it situated in a wide open valley next to a river with ample airspace to operate an aircraft, it was originally a lot longer but has since fallen into disrepair, the remaining part of the runway is maintained but it is quite a bit shorter making it yet another tricky strip to operate on, watch out for soft ground and due to the high altitude/length of the strip be very careful with weights, weather and fuel mix. 6: ASB Asimba. Asimba is a small village situated in Oro province next to the Chirma river, and features a very short runway cut into the dense forest, pilots should watch wingtips carefully when turning, and all take offs and landings are out over the river 7: KGH Yongai. Yongai bushstrip is cut into the hillside and services a mission station, with a short sloping bumpy one-way runway pilots should approach as slowly as possible and with great care, and dont forget to pay attention to the crosswinds. Cheers, Tim and Ken Goilala_bushpack.kml

  7. Is everybody in Papua New Guinea quite tall or am I just very short? Even 12 year old Thomas standing next to me is taller. I wonder if I can get a booster cushion for my Comanche?
  8. Tapini to Yongai Enjoy and thanks for looking! FSX - DX10 - Shade - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  9. Big job flying a bunch of cargo up to the village of Woitape. This was going to be a two plane shuttle and I was going to flying the big crate in P2-KSM while the rest was being flown up in P2-KSI. The flight started just before the crack of dawn trying to get up there before the heat of the day added to the planes performance. On the ground it was already 80F and Im sure there was plenty of low clouds and fog up in the valleys yet to burn off. Found an opening after circling the field and made a nice slow approach into land. KSI was already on the ground and starting to unload the plane. A MAF crew was also there helping coordinate the delivery. Attached is the Google Earth file for the flight from the Twin Otter Flight Recorder. aypy wtp.kml

  20. The waterfall, that should be full flowing and spectacular, in my setup just dribbles. I have all the sliders to max, and all updates, but still can't get the waterfall to be a true waterfall. Any suggestions for a solution???
  21. Efogi to Kagi --- the toughest trip I have ever tried. It only took me around 30 attempts to get the landing right! Coming to a stop in a few seconds after landing is as nerve-racking as it gets Whew!!.....
  22. The south of France: PNG: Ready to go: All stopped... Home Thanks for the repaint Tim. The Twin Otter has logged a lot of hours lately, which is entirely your doing. Off to try out Tim's Royal Tonga livery. Departing Auckland: The problem with anything other than short haul within NZ is that involves a lot of water: A LOT of water... Not seen land in two hours since crossing Great Barrier Island Mike
  23. Goroka Air Services P2-MRN, based at AYGA - Goroka airport, Papua New Guinea, circa 1998 Repaint link here http://meatyskins.blogspot.com.au/ Enjoy
  24. Not quite in it's home habitat, but I couldn't pass up my favourite colour scheme on the 707 for a trip down to Cairns from Port Moresby (with a sneaky bypass of Murray Island along the way!). Cheers, Jarrad
  25. Thanks Ken and Tim.
