About This File
FS2004 Scenery--Akun Island (PAUT) in Aleutians, Alaska (AK), USA. Akun Island is close to Akutan, only 7 miles away from the village and the Trident fish processing plant that is just west of the village. Unfortunately those 7 miles are over the sea, as the airport has been built on a different island where there are fewer hills. The link is by hovercraft, which is included as AI in this file along with a "seaport" that boasts only an apron down by the beach. PAUT has a single runway aligned 09-27 which is 4,500 feet long and has a surrounding gravel base. There are daily flights from Dutch Harbor by Grant Aviation, and more than one if more are required. The AI contains these flights, plus a late afternoon Coast Guard helicopter flight is added to the revised St Paul Island AI included here. Adjacent to the airport there is a camp for housing labor who were employed on the airport construction, and this is now available for wildlife survey teams or whoever else needs to find accomodation while working on Akun Island.
