NEWS - Scenery Released : YBAS - Alice Springs Airport by Pearl Simulations


NEWS! Scenery Release YBAS Header.jpg


What another Australian scenery released? After the surprise of YSSY - Sydney by Taimodels which is well worth checking out, here now is a Northern Territory scenery with YBAS/ASP - Alice Springs, which is about as dead centre in Australia as you can get. But well worth the the flight.


Alice Springs Airport is an Australian regional airport 7 nautical miles (13 km; 8.1 mi) south of Alice Springs, Northern Territory. The airport has two runways, the larger of which can accommodate the Airbus A380, Boeing 747 and 777 landing (but not a fully laden takeoff due to high temperatures and the runway length). The only scheduled flights using the airport are domestic, although international charters do use the airport on occasions. The airport is not subject to a curfew and operates 24 hours a day.

During 2010–11 a total of 640,519 domestic passengers passed through Alice Springs Airport making it the 18th busiest airport in Australia.


Asia Pacific Aircraft Storage

On 27 May 2011 it was announced that Alice Springs Airport had been selected to be the first large-scale aircraft boneyard outside the United States.

The facility, which commenced operation in June 2014, is operated by Asia Pacific Aircraft Storage Ltd. APAS chose Alice Springs because its dry, arid climate which is perfect for aircraft storage and preservation. The facility will store commercial aircraft not in use, as well as those planes that have been decommissioned from service and which will be stripped of parts to be recycled, such as engines, electronics and wiring.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, various overseas airlines including Singapore Airlines, Scoot, NokScoot, Fiji Airways, Cebu Pacific, Garuda Indonesia and Cathay Pacific are all storing their aircraft in the facility and was at the height of the pandemic a full house.

Australia's Northern Territory is a very unique place to fly around, and Alice Springs is a great destination. Notable was the other payware NT scenery in YAYE - Ayres Rock - Connellan Airport by RIM&Co, a very weird scenery, but the outback landscape was really very well done.


I would love to recommend this Pearl Sim YBAS - Alice Springs scenery, but I can't, as it is quite average in almost every area, even not up to freeware standards? "The Alice" and the X-Plane Simulator deserves far, far better...  YAYE-Ayres Rock is a masterpiece compared to this.
