The Richat structure (Eye of Africa)

The fictious Richat airport (EOA) is located just north of the town of Ouadane in Mauritania and the Eye of Africa is only 12Nm from the airport on a heading of 062 degrees.

The Richat Structure, also called Guelb er Richât (Arabic قلب الريشات Qalb ar-Rīšāt). The Eye of Africa is a prominent circular feature in the Sahara's Adrar Plateau, near Ouadane, west–central Mauritania, Northwest Africa. It is an eroded dome, 40 kilometres (25 mi) in diameter, exposing sedimentary rock in layers which appear as concentric rings. The best aerial view of the circular structure is from at least 10,000' altitude.

The main approach to the airport is into runway 19 which is 3,300 feet of cement at an altitude of 1400'. There is a project underway to install ILS and papi lights at some point in the future.

The Richat airport has an identifier of EOA

v1.0 1st draft
v1.1 VASI added to Runway 19 only (3 degree glidescope)
v1.2 GA Parking added and general clean up for release
v1.3 Some minor terraforming added to improve the area inside the airport and security fencing added to keep the local wildlife away from the apron. A solar power farm is now providing most of the power required for the airport.
v1.4 Full night time lighting has been commissioned for the approach to runway 19 and taxiways, runway 01 is daylight operations only. 
v1.5 minor updates to correct some errors introduced by the World update
