Hypothetical Hubs – Oriental Operations

2

114825_2According to the Oxford English Dictionary, in zoological terms, the term “oriental” refers to “relating to or denoting a zoogeographical region comprising Asia south of the Himalayas and Indonesia west of Wallace’s line.” – the latter, if you are interested, cuts down between Borneo and Sulawesi, Bali and Lombok. We’ll allow you to spread a little further than that to include the South East Asian islands in their entirety… Maybe even a little further if it’s worth the visit. 😉

For this one, you’re a charter pilot in a small passenger turboprop, a Twin Otter, KingAir, Pilatus PC-6 or similar. Where would you take it or base yourself out of? In what sim? Any particular reason? Comments in the box below, please?

Thilo, the funny thing about all those places you mentioned, I was at all of those places in real life as part of a cool trip I did in Indonesia.
I want to Place myself in Kota Biak. or ambon

I would base my aircraft in Sulawesi, Macassar or Manado or in Irian Jaya, Wamena. Indonesia is a very interesting place with so many island and small and some also dangerous airstrips. I would use FSX because there is no alternative. Pity, that not much is
covered from this nice country.
