  1. The local authorities have decided to study the possibility of using a Dash 7 in the challenging airfields along the Kokoda trail. The local Airlines PNG Twin Otter pilots based at the Kokoda airport have been invited on board of the newly arrived aircraft as they might have to do a cross-training later on. Today, the group is heading to Timkenumo, a very short mountain airfield with an impressive slope. The weather forecast indicates the presence of rain for the whole period of the flight. But the visibility is good. It is worth trying out the airfield.
  2. There's a lot wrong with this short video: my flying, the way my system rendered the dust, my flying...you get the idea. The concept was to 1) learn how to place an FS Recorder camera on the runway, 2) capture a takeoff and landing so I can use it on the bush strips, and 3) demonstrate a slip to short-field spot landing with the camera as the touchdown target. Part one and two were achieved. The demo...well, that's for you to judge. I let the aircraft get light on takeoff -- it actually hopped into the air before I planted the mains back on the ground. A big no-no. If
  3. Now that we made it to Papua New Guinea the plan is to explore the numerous little strips along the Kokoda Track out of Port Moresby and those in Goilala district out of Tapini. I'm assuming you can't shoehorn a Gooney Bird into many of them so I'll be using a rented Cessna 180. But first I had to find the Kokoda Track, and what better way to do it than with our trusty DC-3 Airways bird. Especially since someone else is paying for the gas and oil. To be honest, we did a lot of wandering around before we found anything. The charts we had
  4. Today myself and Ken Hall would like to introduce you to our Papua New Guinea experience! Dreamed up in the middle of last year, we set out to provide not just an airport, but rather an Experience, to allow the user to totally immerse in the feeling of Papua New Guinea, after 3 months of pain-staking research and another 6 months of late nights, modeling, texturing and designing, countless coffees, and many bent Twinotters........we bring you the first of our Pacific Islands conquests (PI): Jacksons International Airport (POM, AYPY), also known as Port Moresby Airport and and dur
  5. Port Moresby, up at sparrows fart (6am) for a coffee, duck into the tower FPO to check weather reports ok, lodge a flightplan, and load fuel, 3 hikers going up to Kokoda this morning for a trek All ready and humming, waiting at the holdshort for runway clearance, its a busy morning in POM Rotating and lifting away Wheels up Climbing and climbing Tracking through the Gap, few clouds, should be ok Slowly letting it down with plenty of space Parked up watching the rain, waiting for two folks going to Mt Hagen, then picking up a package and heading back to
  6. Cranked up the trusty old Cargomaster and headed to Kokoda Quick stop-over at Manapi Dropped off the pack of sugar for the campsite cookie and preparing to head on to the first main destination of the day. Kokoda approach I actually did land there - here's one from the departure for the next leg: Emo Mission Finals Unloading And now for the final leg back to Port Moresby. Cropped straight DX10s Cheers Mallard

  8. So here we are, with the undoubted highlight of my PNG tour: The Kokoda bushstrip tour. As moonman pointed out, I should have enough fresh T-shirts in this humid region, so I was looking for some in this area ... First stop: Bodinumo. These details add to the experience... 2nd: Boridi. 3rd: Milei. Really my hardest task to slow down here. 4th is a relatively easy one: Timkenumo. 5th stop: Kagi. Not too hard with this plane either. 6th one: Launumu. 7th is Efogi. Looks easy, but I always slipped quickly to the west, be it landing or
