This Microsoft Flight Simulator mod replaces the stock MSFS Karubaga Airport (WABK).
Karubaga is located in the Highland Papua region of Indonesia in Tolikara Regency. A local person -- I believe a pilot -- left this description on a video he posted with drone footage of the airport. His video is here: Drone Video of Karubaga Airport
My translation of his description may not be the best but...
"This time, it's one of the unique airports in Papua, guys... Namely Karubaga Airport.
Located in Kab. Tolikara Papua, this airport is an airport that can be said to be different from other airports. With its natural conditions surrounded by mountains, Karubaga Airport is the fastest access for people to move from one area to another.
This airport has a runway slope angle that is enough to get your adrenaline pumping, apart from the ravines and mountains that directly face the airport.
Soooo... this is Papua guys, Papua is Beautiful, Papua is Unique, Papua is Safe."
He is definitely right about that runway profile!
For this version of the mod (2.0) I created some 3D models of a closer-to-real-life terminal and apron out-buildings, retaining walls, and generally improved the surrounding scenery. There are still a few scenery changes/fixes that I want to do, but wanted to get this version out for folks to use and to (hopefully) provide me with some feedback.
I hope you enjoy this airport mod, and happy flying!
