SP2 Acceleration Scenery Mobile Air Base MAB-03 "Skyhaven". A mobile air base, able to be relocated anywhere a large airport is needed. Floating on a high techy-tech anti-grav field, the MAB's can transit at up to 100 kts speed, and a max "altitude" of about 1000 feet, to clear most terrain obstacles. Capable of accomodating most large and small aircraft in take-off, landing, and hangar space. Skyhaven is well equipped with hangars, hotel, convention and logistics areas, restaurants, a kennel, and most important, party space! Model includes multiple MAB locations, night textures, landable runways, and helipads. By Tim Conrad.

1)After downloading the zip, locate it, and extract the file to a temp folder.

2)Copy the .BGL files to FSX Add-on Scenery\Scenery folder

3) Open the mab_textures folder and transfer all the .dds files over to your FSX Add-on Scenery\Texturs folder.

All the MAB's use the same Tower and VOR/DME freq's.
134.90 for Tower
109.35 for VOR\DME
All MAB's can be found in the "go to airport" menu. Right side runway is usually used for take-offs, and left side runway for landings.
The MAB's can also be navigated to via the GPS and Flight Planner system.

TURN OFF CRASH DETECTION!! Due to the odd geometry of the Skyhaven, turning off crash detection will avoid endless frustration.
If you are as good as you say, you will not need crash detection! :-)

Once in a while you may end up on the ground under the MAB when you start after you "go to airport". Just slew onto the deck. Once flying, take-offs and landings will work.
I have no idea why this bug happens.


To all who download and enjoy my planes:-)
And to all of the makers of all the tutorials, utilities, tips, like Airwrench, DXTBMP, How-to's etc. Couldn't do it without you!!

This really rocks the house man, I would pay $30 for this piece, keep making cool these cool things! Try making a version thats at 20k feet in the air and moving with a catapolt and wires (for tail hooks).

Nice man.
