Welcome to Weatherby USFS Airport!
Weatherby USFS lies roughly 40nm north-east from Boise well into the Idaho backcountry.
Situated in a narrow valley right next to the Middle Fork Boise River at an elevation of 4500' makes it an interesting yet challening place to fly to.
The airport, which is owned by the US Forest Service, serves as ideal stop-over point between the Snake River Plain to the south and the Idaho Mountains to the north.
A 2200 x 60 feet turf/dirt runway gives you enough space to set up your tent and enjoy the surrounding area for some superb hiking or fishing.
Recommended landing is upstream with a left pattern (RWY03) and take-off downstream (RWY21), if wind conditions permit.
The more challening approach, however, is coming from the canyon above.
Don't expect any service or maintenaince, especially in the winter.
This airport is the first one made by me, which includes a number of custom created objects.
Since I'm still very new to creating custom objects, it took me quite some time and may not be perfect, but I still hope you like it.
I tried to re-create a backcountry-ish feel to it by adding a lot of natural elements.
However, I tried not to overload the scenery due to performance concerns.
Please do not share, copy, re-distribute etc. the objects I've created.
If you really want, ask for permission first please.
If you like the airport, consider giving a small donation (even one dollar/euro helps)
Any donations will be used for paying for more textures, PBR materials and storage space to continue creating sceneries for you!
It's never expected, but always highly welcome!
PayPal Donation (for the life of me, I can't figure out how to add these fancy buttons)
