A quick look at Flat Point

Here’s another fix locked in:

I don’t think Flat Point is in X-Plane natively, but there is a mod for it here.

If there are any urgent issues that need fixing in the ortho – let me know, and I’ll take a look.

Here’s Kaikoura Island:

And Flat Point Airfield:

  1. I don’t know if mesh issues are on your agenda, but there are a couple of airstrips I’m aware of which are unusable with the current ortho:
    – Kaikoura Island (Great Barrier) – the hilltop ridge is currently just too uneven to land on safely – X-Plane user DazaXIII had to create a fictitious strip on a different part of the island to replace it
    – Flat Point – NZTopoMaps shows a second hilltop airstrip inland from the beach strip (which is indeed very nice.) The hilltop ridge is, again, too uneven to make survivable landings at every attempt.
    I imagine these are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of all the small airstrips shown in NZ in hilly terrain, but it would be nice if these two were landable.
