About This File

FS2004 Scenery--Aasiaat BGAA Greenland. Qikiqtarjuaq, on the east coast of Baffin Island, is the jumping off airfield for ferry flights for small planes from Canada to Europe via Greenland. Aasiaat is the airfield in Greenland that they jump to, 300 miles across the Davis Strait; the name in Danish is Egedesminde. The airfield is on the northern coast of Aasiaat Island, one of a series in the Aasiaat Archipelago. The runway is 2, 600 feet of asphalt almost 100 feet wide and lighted, aligned 12/30, with the apron and terminal building at the western end. Air Greenland run regular flights with a Dash-8 or Twin Otters, and the markings for the taxiway and parking spot in front of the terminal are exactly as they were six years ago. Unfortunately, given the limitations of FS and the single runway and simple taxiway routing there was no way to replicate both the parking facing away from the terminal AND the "through" taxiing to complete the circle back to the runway; after parking correctly the AI Air Greenland plane will reverse before heading out to take off.
