West Aussie Three for P3D2: Jandakot | Cunderdin | Busselton


Recommended Posts

G'day all,

 

As many of you know, Graham Eccleston has been working very hard to get many of our Australian airports up to P3D2 compatibility for you all to enjoy alongside FTX_AU. I'd like to showcase a small set of shots with the latest three releases; Jandakot YPJT, Cunderdin YCUN and Busselton YBLN, all of which are located in south-west Western Australia. These airports were the first three that I made for ORBX, and given that they date back to late 2008/early 2009, I thought I'd offer a quick re-introduction for those that are newer members to the forum. 

 

JANDAKOT AIRPORT YPJT 

 

Jandakot Airport is the major general aviation airport serving the city of Perth, Western Australia. One of Australia's busiest airports, in 2011 Jandakot had the highest number of annual movements for any airfield in the country. The Royal Aero Club of Western Australia, China Southern Airlines Flying College, Singapore Airlines Flying College, Heliwest, Air Australia and the Royal Flying Doctor Service are some of the larger operators at YPJT, making this the major hub for the GA industry in Western Australia. A lot of love went into this project; being my local airport I was keen to make it as real as possible. 

 

FEATURES
 

- Very high-detailed rendition of Jandakot Airport (YPJT), surrounds and approaches.

- Coverage area at 25cm/1m resolution, including extended circuit area, approaches and other POI's including Forrestdale Lake

CUNDERDIN AIRPORT (Freeware!)

 

Built during World War II to originally serve as a training base, Cunderdin is a regional airport located east of Perth in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia. During the war, RAAF Tigermoth trainers and later B-24 Squadrons, were based at the field, operating missions as far afield as Java. After the war, the Gliding Club of WA took over many of the old hangars and buidlings, and now operate the largest gliding club in WA (side note: for an excellent account of real-life adventures at the field, I strongly recommend reading Derek's accounts in this thread). As well as gliding ops, the airport is a favourite for both civilian and airforce students operating out of Perth; it is not uncommon for the circuit to be shared between a Cessna 152 and RAAF PC-9 or BAe Hawk! Due to it's wartime legacy, Cunderdin features two large runways, though caution should be advised as only the centre section of both runways are kept in serviceable condition. 

 

As well as the airport, Cunderdin includes a very extensive coverage area, including the airport circuit, salt flats to the east and west, and the entire township of Cunderdin. 

 

FEATURES
 

- High detailed rendition of Cunderdin Airport (YCUN)

- Very large coverage are at 60cm, including the airport, salt flats and entire town of Cunderdin
- Numerous custom static aircraft made exclusively for Cunderdin including Neptune and Dromader models.

Jarrad, just to say thank you. As a Perth guy also who has been enjoying your work for years these airports are home to me and you have replicated them beautifully and to soon be using them in P3DV2 is fantastic.

Jandakot is also my home airport so I've been waiting for the P3Dv2 update for it, boy have I missed it. Was out at Jandakot having lunch at the cafe next to the tower 2 weeks back in fact! Looking great as always and thanks to you Jarrad and everyone else at Orbx
