Annobon Airport, San Antonio de Pale, Equatorial Guinea. Updates the airport serving this offshore island for AI traffic - specifically the World of AI packages. There is no default FSX airport on this island. Airport update by Reggie Fields.
Plane taking off from of Annobon Airport.
Overview - This is a NEW airport for FSX. The real airport apparently does not have an ICAO code - but the code FGAB is used by AI flight plan writers.
These files add the airport to your FSX world and setup the airport for AI traffic - specifically the World of AI packages.
Location - FGAB/ Annobon Island is located about 220 nm west of the coast of Africa, and about 110 miles southwest of Sao Tome Island. The island is only about 4 miles by 2 miles. The island population is about 5,000.
The airport has minimal air traffic - often only one to three flights per week.
The default FSX mesh for this island is flat as a pancake. The shortline is blocky and not very well done. the link below has a photo which shows the island with the airport, the main town of San Antonio de Pale and the volcanic crater lake - Lago A Pot. The island's main extinct volcano rises to an elevation of 598M / 1,961 ft at the peak named Quioveo.
Creating a more exact island shortline and the mesh is a much more complex project for another day.
Airport Information - Google Earth imagery is Apr 26, 2006
- Created runway 05/23.
- Added FSS airport frequency on 122.200.
- Updated small open apron to match satellite photos.
- Added 4 parking spots.
- Created airport background polygon to match GE image.
- Created auto parking area.
- Added land class on the nearby coast to simulate the town.
- Added a factory area.
This is a daylight, VFR only airport. I have set the runway lights to Low.
No parking codes are used for this airport. At this time the maximum airline traffic is one ATR-42 aircraft from Ceiba Intercontinental.
There is apparently some government / military traffic occasionally - a few months ago a flight by an AN-26 crashed just off shore on approach to the airport/ island.
The main parking spot is 21.3M in size RAMP_GA. This is sufficiently large for the ATR and any other probably aircraft such as An-12 An-26, C-160 or C-130.
There are 2 GA Small (7.3M) and 1 GA Medium (9.3M) parking spots on the apron.
There are no taxi lines drawn on the apron.
