  1. Lots to see here, this is just a small sampling...even with the expanded viewer these screen shots are just not the same as the sim experience. Orbx -FTX: Global Holgermesh Papua New Guinea,Global TAP Tapini Airport, Global AYPY Jacksons Intenational
  2. Perseverance, and better attention to my altitude...was the charm. Consider the go arounds as extra mileage points for your frequent PNG flier cards. Cheers, Coffee.
  3. I conducted a test for my Air Hauler operation in PNG. Framerates were quite nice, so I popped on the Fraps...glad I did. Duncan/Slopey just enabled scenery importing into Airhauler2 (my favorite addon just a wee bit ahead of ORBx addons...as AH gives me a reason to fly, ORBx the places), thankfully, as I have been Jonesing to haul around the ORBx Tapini/PNG scenery since AH2 began EA Beta release. This footage is shot outside of Airhualer, I am just testing if I can safely bring a load of 10,000 lbs into TAP, Tapini...in a gorgeous flying freeware C46 in "Bush Flying Unlimited" livery...we shall see what it's limits are... Hope you enjoy.

  10. 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
