Hi Christian

You have made reference in another thread to a downloadable map on your website showing the location of the 3,500 airstrips in your payware package.
I can't find it, does it still exist?

Cheers

The pdf files ship with the scenery I believe - at the very least they should be on the combo CD.
Breathtakingly gorgeous FS landscapes for New Zealand.

I couldn't find them anywhere on the CD but I have them now anyway thanks to dbcunnz.

Another question, is it possible to change the colour of these airstrips by replacing a texture file or something?
It would be nice to have them stand out a little more like my airport/airfield sceneries.

I guess it depends whether they are just part of the landscape or whether they are all linked to a certain texture.

short answer - no. It would be possible, but fair bit of work and it'll screw other things up, so you best leave it like it is...

Hi Chris,

As my question is on the same subject, I wouldn't open a new topic.

My main thing is bush flying (flying hunters, camping equipment, gasoline), and thanks to your Landclass, I have about 3000 backcountry airstrips to choose from drool.gif . Sometimes it's a bit different to find them, but once I found them, I record the co-ordinates and create a "parking-only" AFCAD file for them, so I can load my plane there next time.

Can I ask where did you get the data for those airstrips? I run FS Cargo, I usually fly on VATSIM, and I need names with the locations for both things. I can work it out for some of them (eg: Awaroa airstrip in Abel Tasman), but I'd like to have at least 20-25 choices. Is there any public airstrip list available? I found the bigger aerodromes but nothing about agro-cultural, or private airstrips....

Snowman, the question goes for you as well - as I use your awesome Rural Airstrips package, too. punk.gif

The easiest way to view all the strips -- with names -- is on the Koordinateswebsite. Go to the Transportation/Air and Aviation category, and add the 'NZ Runways and Airstrips'. The strips will show up on the map, and you can just click on them to see the name and coordinates. You can download the data as a Google KMZ file, but I don't think it includes the name, so not as useful as the web map.

Wow! clapping.gif Thanks Rob, that's exactly what I was looking for! I'm hardly waiting for planning some VFR today!

Cheers again!

Unfortunately names are hard to get by. Just tried Robin's solution, but it seems to just take a close location, not the actual strip name (only tried Southland, but I do know a few strips there by name and the web sites seems to fail for those).
