beware MSFS fake ICAO codes

Yeah, Asobo / MSFS have created a lot of their own GPS/ICAO codes for airports that are not congruent with reality, especially as heliports are not yet rendered in the sim as of the end of 2020 (so they wouldn't catch the duplicate).

First solo flight 1983

When I learned to fly in Canada 1983

I completed my first solo 10. of July 1983 on Midland (Huronia) Airport with an Cessna 150 C-GUKF and finally got the PPL Licence on July 29th 1983.

I never forget this awesome time flying in Ontario. Wonderful!

Recently paved and painted as of 20 Dec 2020. No perimeter fence, directly adjacent to FM 1470 to the south, private residences to the north.

well that's a tight fit

Lots of signage warning pedestrians and motorists going into the adjacent parking garage of the "Helicopter Landing Zone". Rotor wash here must be all sorts of fun.

Name should be changed

The ICAO name is MPCL and the local three letter name used is CLZ

Some more deets

Visible on the old topo maps available in CalTopo, and the eastern half of the runway is clearly visible running due east from the modern-day Lone Butte Casino.

Looking for Belleville Flying Club jacket

My dad still has his Belleville Flying Club jacket from the 90's but it is falling apart. Anyone have one in their collection they would be willing to part with?

After divorce with my husband

After divorce with my husband i went through a lot of difficulty. I took multiple loans which i never had money to pay back. Well, that wasn’t the best path as it affected my credit terribly afterwards. Got in contact with a specialist after the bank rejected all my proposal for more loan as I needed a new apartment and all I did to fix my credit on my own was all invain . Rich Skrenta Cleared off 3 negativities. RICHSKRENTACYBERSERVICE AT GMAIL DOT COM. fixed my credit in less than 11days.

Unusual IATA code "MDN" vs FAA LID "IMS"

The IATA still assigns the code "MDN" to this airport: https://www.iata.org/en/publications/directories/code-search/?airport.search=MDN

However, based on a problem report, it appears the airport itself does not choose to brand itself under that identifier: "MDN is not associated with our airport. It’s just IMS. Please take the MDN information off or please send me where you are getting information so that I can get it corrected. I’m the airport manager for the airport and I have been tracking down the source of this misinformation. Thanks"

Since IATA, and not the airport, controls the IATA codes, we will be keeping that code here for now. It would be best if the airport authority reached out directly to IATA to have the "MDN" code deleted.

re: VOR Freqency

Thank you for the comment. There is an NDB (and possibly a colocated DME) on the island, both according to our database and to the Skyvector chart, but no sign of a VOR. Perhaps it would be best to get in touch with the airport or the national aviation authority for more information.

Any port in a storm...

I set down here today to wait out the passage of a wicked cold front. I hadn't realized that every building on the field had been literally demolished by a recent hurricane. So, after I tied the plane down (tightly), I climbed back in the plane and rode out the storm. A little lonely but the pyrotechnics were good.

Expensive experience

Fees for a single engine piston was $365!

Improved Surfaces/Hangars

The runway is now paved! (40' wide), and they are adding a second heated hangar which should be completed in Nov 2020.

When making your radio calls, be sure to use "Steinbach South" Traffic. As "Steinbach" (the other airfield three miles north of this one) shares the same frequency.

Grass runway

There seems to be a parallel grass runway right beside 03/21. It's not listed in the CFS, but the diagram shows its length as 1,800 ft.

Not yet finished

Under construction.

Turf Conditions Were Great

Firm grass, no issues in a cherokee six. Quite the approach into the westerly direction. Amazing views

Picture of bcrosby

Watch out for the construction site on the approach end of 1

Lots of digging and mounds of dirt

Picture of bcrosby

Still Well Maintained

Turf was solid with a few embedded rocks here and there.. There is J-A1 fuel on site, probably for the helicopters. No probs in a Cherokee Six

Picture of wolfgangx

So many jets

Came in on a Saturday evening and the massive ramp was almost completely full! Very friendly staff.

Seward is a work in progress for me.

I am close to having a working airport here, with some known problems that when I post it up anyone with more knowledge on msfs2020 design is welcome to my source and can edit and fix anything they like. Most of the problems i am having are related to terraforming. I have managed to get a relatively flat airport with a couple of bumps at the edges of the apron. However the airport altitude is wrong as I couldn't figure out how to change it in the polygon. I comes in at the default of around 10' and should be 27' . I will post a comment here when I get the first version posted somewhere. with instructions on contacting me for the files to edit.

According to MSFS2020 the code for this airport is O64, but that clashes with "Port of Catoosa Heliport" so I have left it blank.

The connection between runway 17/35 and Runway 12/30 located at the end of runway 35 has been demolished

04MA Update

As of 2020, Google Maps imagery shows there's a Cessna parked behind the house at 1020 N Broadway, and the field across the street is still cleared enough for takeoffs. The four digit FAA identifier 04MA indicates this is for private use only; it is still listed as active on AirNav and FAA sources. I think that "anonymous user" may have had an ax to grind.

Picture of animebirder

Mistaken identity?

The person listed by the previous commenter is listed as the manager at Wolf River Airport (54N) in Rossville, Tennessee; I see no current listing for a manager for Wolf River Ranch Airport MS53 in Mississippi in any internet searches. This airport is no longer listed as open in AirNav in any case and trees have grown on half of the previous runway surface in recent satellite imagery.

Private Security Contractors

Second World War

During the Second World War, this airport hosted the No. 7 Air Observer School of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, and the No. 14 Elementary Flying Training School was right across the road: http://bcatp.org/139-no-7-air-observer-school/

Today, the airport is privately-operated, but still hosts the 3 Canadian Forces Flying Training School: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3_Canadian_Forces_Flying_Training_School

Second World War

From 1941 to 1944, St-Hubert hosted the No. 13 Service Flying Training School of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP), on the military side of the airfield that formerly served as RCAF Station St-Hubert (later CFB St-Hubert until the 1990s, when it was decommissioned).

From a problem report: "Another business has bought the airport and is now using it as a solar panel field. Nobody can access the airport unless authorized."

Clubhouse and visitor parking

There are two gravel-paved visitor parking spots beside the fuel pumps, directly across from the clubhouse. The clubhouse has combo access (a code visiting pilots will have no trouble figuring out), a washroom, and vending machines. There's also wifi, but I couldn't find the password posted anywhere on the wall.

Expect to hear only French on the radio in the circuit.
