FS2004 Scenery--Paulatuk (CYPC) in NW Territories, Canada. Paulatuk is on the coast of northern mainland Canada, 200 miles east of Toktoyaktuk and 170 miles southwest of Ulukhaktok. It is was first established in the 1920's, just to the east of the Parry Peninsula, which in the 1950's became the site of a DEW line Main Station. The population now numbers around 320. Paulatuk airfield is close to the village but on higher ground, while the village follows the curve of the coast. The 4, 000 feet of 100 feet wide gravel runway is aligned 021T/201T where T stands for "true" as opposed to magnetic. Only JETA-1 is available unless there is 100LL in drums. There are flights by Aklak Air from Inuvik, which is around 250 miles to the west; Aklak Air is actually Kenn Borek under a diferent name. The AI is for a daily passenger flight, and for a cargo flight on Wednesdays. By Roger Wensley.
