#Real-Life France Exclusive Drag and Drop

This is a replacement for LF74 Puget Theniers which is incorrect in sim.

Altisurface Valberg is a small airdrome (altisurface) situated at over 1750 meters (5680ft)  in alttutude above the ski resort Valberg in France's Alpes Maritimes.
60Km (35Mi) North of city of Cannes.

Coordinates:

44°06'21.7"N 6°56'26.2"E   44.106039, 6.940602   Lenght about 410m width about 35m Altitude 2240m downhill - 2280m uphill  


---
To land to it use only runway 140 uphill. Keep power in engine to be able to climb on top (about 50m difference)
Remember the altitude is over 1700m or around 5600 ft!!

----
Takeoff downhill on 320. Mind the little hump at the end of the takeoff run on left. In real life I think it's a bit smaller but with the limited tools SDK has I couldn't make it better
You can spawn on two spots facing downhill with the engine running or choose one of the three parkings to spawn with the engine stopped. Zoom in close enough to see them.

Notes:

This is a replacement of current LF74 Puget Theniers which is a wrong name and ICAO for it.
I tried to put a more close to real live building of the hangar. That is the only one comming close to what I have seen in the pictures. I also added a flag and a windsock
No tower, no radio, but you can contact Nice Approach after takeoff. 
ICAO in reality is LF0654 but MFS2020 allows only 5 characters so in game appears as LF654

Question for who downloads and uses these small airports. I put them as "starred" which means they are always visible on the map and easy to spot and choose. They also have now from update 3 a small plug icon that means pluggin (I suppose). Is the fact that they are starred and always visible a niuisance? Should I disable the feature and leave them visible only by search or by zooming in close enough?

Thanks!


Best regards Bogdan Zaelu Ghica

    I also fixed the windsocks now to move correctly in the wind.

    The rest is the same. No fix for wrong color order in the French flag... I wait for Asobo to fix the flag, is made by them :)

  • Version 2.0 April 15, 2021

    I have brought in line the altisurface Valberg with the others I edited after World Update 4 France and Benelux.
    In this case there was prior to WU4 an existing autogen aerodrome LF74 but it wasn't disturbing the new scenery much and I didn't deleted it back then when I created this. However things might change in the future so I made the package delete any preexisting airports at the location.

    Also I added a second windsock and changed the static plane with a DA40 because the Savage was a tail dragger and was bouncing around worse (bug with MFS...).

    Inside archive are now two folders. One is the altisurface Valberg and the other is the necessary "anti-airport" mod that delete/disables the default one underneath.

    Hello,
    Nice altisurface. Very good job.
    Just a little remarque : the french flag, should be inverted, the blue should be in contact with the pole

      I know but it's the only flag I found in game library. I think is one texture and on one side is correct and the other is wrong.
      Also I think after last updates the static Cub now doesn't stay on its tail wheel anymore... I must recheck it at some point.

    To zaelu : I personally discovered Alps sloped runways and airstrips thanks to Guy Nemoz's wonderful work for FSX, still available on http://www.vf-air.com/
    Guy is a great guy (his contact mail is on his website).
    Speaking again of Habère Poche I don't know neither if the jets and turboprops were "statics or AI nore if some exclusion is possible for hem and for the airport's vehicles. Was just to let it know...
    Cheers Jean-Paul

    Thanks for answering : was just a suggestion "not a need" 😊

    Anyway Habère Poche is just for gliders (ULM for emergency only)

    If someday you want to work on it, it only would need to put the main airport building in right orientation and suppress any static aircraft other than gliders or ULM (at the moment I saw turboprops and even a business jet !)

    Thanks again for sharing your work. Kind regards,

    Jean-Paul

    Hi, thanks for the comment.
    I have few in the pipeline but most importantly after 8th this month I will have to take a break from MFS2020 for a bit. I can't promise anything but the plan after I get back is to do as many as possible from Alps area (mostly because is where I live now).
    Cheers.

    Edit :

    Found Habère Poche: exists in MSFS as "LF75 Perrignier" !

    ( Does not mean it could not be improved 😊 Most obvious is the wrong orientation of main airport's building...

    Hello,

    Many thanks for you work. Would like to be able to do the same...

    You asked :

    1 - "Is the fact that they are starred and always visible a niuisance?" : Not for me

    2- "Should I disable the feature and leave them visible only by search or by zooming in close enough?" I do not think so as you cannot easily zoom the map enough to make this kind of search

    May I suggest you could try to figure LF7469 Habère Poche airstrip in MSFS ? 😊
