Thank you for downloading and Installing the Scenery for Wilkins Aerodrome (YWKS) in Antarctica.

Wilkins Airport is an airport mainly for Arrivals for transportation for Sceintists to avoid the extremely long journey by boat. This scenery depicts the Real YWKS in many ways but there are many constraints.

The altitude of the airport is 2600'. The real life one is 2300 - 2550. This was changed due to the FSX default ground elevation.
There will be a mountain about a 7NM final for rwy 09. That is where the scenery started. I didn't know how to get rid of this so please bare with it.
This scenery does NOT work on FS9. IF you can get it to work on FS9, please email me and it will be apprecaited.
There is no Ramp, only helipad startups and Runway startups. This is because of a BGL Error that occursed. Feel free to spawn the planes onto the helipad areas. It won't make a difference.

Simply unzip the "YWKS.BGL" and "YWKS_CVX.BGL" and place in your ".../Microsoft Flight Simulator X/Addon Scener/Scenery" Folder.

Then open up FS, and type in YWKS in the ICAO code or Wilkins in the Go TO Airport section. Fly and enjoy.

Brakes don't work in the ICE (FSX exaggerates this. Brakes don't work at all.) So you have to use the reversers.
In real life, the A319 normally flies this route inbound from Hobart (YMHB). It's mainly for Sceintific and cargo transport.
There are also many helicopter that fly into here.

Once again, this is just a simple scenery to have an airport there. It is better than not having anything.
