#Real-Life United States Drag and Drop

I learned to fly at this Class D airport in the Mid-nineties back when Daniel Webster College ran a flight school at the field.  At the time, it was one of the busiest small airports in the Northeast, maybe the country.

The airport is located in beautiful Southern New Hampshire, and Asobo definitely got the feel of the area right.  It's a wonderful place to fly, located just south of Mt. Monadnock, centrally located between Cape Cod and the islands and the lakes region of New Hampshire and Maine, so there's lots of interesting places to fly and plenty of hamburgers and ice cream to be eaten at a wide variety of airports all around.

Locally there's some cool airports to check out, such as Silver Ranch (KAFN) over by Mt Monadnock, Brookline (NH16), Pepperell (26MA) (I'll probably redo this airport as it's the local sky diving location, (maybe figure out how to add that comment to the ATIS for the airport? "Be aware of Sky Diving operations at Pepperell"...)), Keene, Skyhaven, Hanscom, the Cape and Islands ( Nantucket (KACK), Provincetown (KPVC), Martha's Vineyard (KMVY) and more).  A really nice flight is from KASH to the other airport I've released on Lake Winnipesaukee, Lakes Region Airport (69NH). It's a half hour flight with some decent geography, especially up in the Lakes Region/White Mountains.  Alton Bay on the south end of Lake Winnipesaukee has ice operations in the winter time.    For a longer flight, check out KRKD in Rockland on the shore of Maine, home of the Owl's head transportation museum.  I used to volunteer there in the summer during their events driving people across the airport to the museum.

v2.2.1 12/6/2020 - Added a couple flattens to remove some new hills that were added under the hangars in a couple of locations.  Modified a hangar on the south side of the field

v2.2.0 11/06/2020 - *MAJOR UPDATE* A bug was introduced in v10.7.0/10.8.0 with the living world config subsystem which causes a CTD if you start at an airport other than KASH pretty much anywhere in at least the Eastern US and Canada.  Removing the section assocated with the KASH_LWcfg.xml file from the layout.json will stop the CTD.  This release does that, so you can just delete the old install and replace it with this. Unfortunately, it means there will likely be vehicles that normally aren't on the airport driving around.

v2.1.1 10/18/2020 -  Minor revision, edited and properly sized the taxiway signs (I forgot the brackets for the surround around the location), and fixed the signs over by 14 to match what is actually there.  Added lighting over by the tower shining on the apron, added another vehicle parking space where fuel trucks typically park in front of the hangar next to the hangar with the restaurant.  I haven't confirmed with the airport authorities, but I extended Taxiway Frank to connect with Charlie by passing along the taxiway in front of the tower.  I extended Taxiway Charlie along the taxiway in front of the North Hangars all the way to Echo.  Added most of the rest of fencing, including gates (which I don't imagine work). Added the windsock over the Midfield Cafe

v2.0 10/15/2020 - This is a major revision of my previous release.  It's still the same buildings as rev 1, but I completely redid the runways, taxiways, and painted lines, I added all the parking spot on the tarmac as well as nearly 150 spots to spawn from/AI; replaced/added fuel stations and redid the runway, landing, and taxi lighting.. There hasn't been a VASI on 32 in maybe 10-15 years, they replaced it with PAPI when they redid the runways, fixed that. I added all the taxiway signs I'm aware of, I redid the ambient traffic and got rid of the pushbacks and vehicles that you'd never see at this airport, and greatly reduced the ambient traffic.  I also added the current IFR Approaches which were for some reason forgotten for this airport, even though airports of similar size and traffic density in the immediate area have their approaches.  I've added some fencing, there's more to be added.  I'll be working on getting back into the air starting this Friday, so I'll have greater access to the grounds to get even more detail going forward.  It's not finished to my own expectations, but it's many times over improved in my estimation over the default.  Expect to see further improvements over time (maybe I'll figure out how to import Google Maps 3D assets?).

To Install, delete the original version if you have it and drop the directory in the zip file into the Community directory.

  • Version 2.2.1 December 06, 2020

    The 1.11.6.0 MSFS US World Update modified the field and added some large hills under the hangar that had to be flattened. I also modified one of the hangars on the south side of the field.

  • Version 2.2.0 November 07, 2020

    v2.2.0 11/06/2020 - *MAJOR UPDATE* A bug was introduced in v10.7.0/10.8.0 with the living world config subsystem which causes a CTD if you start at an airport other than KASH pretty much anywhere in at least the Eastern US and Canada.

  • Version 2.1.2 November 05, 2020

    No changes to the airport except recompiled the airport with SDK 0.7.0.0
    Well, a couple minor changes probably nobody will notice.
    Well, maybe they might, there was a plane that was parked in the wrong direction on the north tarmac, and I reoriented the vehicle parking spots over by the fuel station by Direct Air... You know, while I'm in there, might as well clean it up a bit....

  • Version 2.1.1 October 18, 2020

    Added the windsock over the Midfield Cafe, a couple other small edits.

    Thank you for your efforts FlyingsCool. Hope your refresh flying goes well.

    Nashua has a special place in my logbook. It was my first "Arrived Alive" endorsement. I flew from KBED my home airport.

    Any chance you have fond memories of KBTV?

      According to my logbook, I only flew up to BTV once for one of my long cross-countries in flight training. I used to fly up to Owl's Head a lot, and around the Lakes Region. Otherwise, I used to fly down to the Cape and Nantucket and BDL for the museum a lot. Finally got back into the air again last year and I'm looking to purchase a plane again 😊

    There's a file in marketplace whose name is too long when it comes to moving the folder.

      Can you give me a hint?
      You can see all the files in the package in the zip file.
      I don't know of any files in the package that are longer than 28 characters in the whole package, 23 characters in the Marketplacedata.

      Maybe MSFS adds something? You should be able to look in it.
      Thank you for the information, but I can't see anything like that in the package I created.

      This is all I get. It's just this, because I click skip and it completes the folder move.

      Well, thanks for pointing it out. This is all that should be in there. Let me know if you look in your zip file and find something else. If there is, I didn't put it there and I'll notify flightsim.to

      Hi Manny,
      That's a picture from about 15 or 20 years ago before they moved the runway and added 500 ft to it, from back when I used to fly there regularly (I just started flying again 😊 ). It's actually quite nice now and was recently repaved again. In fact, back in those days, we used to land in the area to the right for practicing soft field landings. Can't do that any more because that's where the runway is now. Notice how there's no threshold on 32. If you look in Google Earth and change the date to the latest (by default it brings up the 3D which is older), you can see it's got nice new pavement now.

    Yes, Stephan reported it below and I've found the bug. I'm about to upload a temporary fix, but you can fix it yourself if you remove the following lines from the layout.json*****************************************************************************************************************

    {
    "path": "LivingWorld_Config/KASH_LWcfg.xml",
    "size": 16505,
    "date": 132467763663596029
    },
    **************************************************************************************************************************
    If you delete those lines, it should cure the CTD.

    Thanks!

    P.S. Man, I hate that this comment section doesn't support any formatting.

    I had constant CTD before entering into the game (after world map, during loading). I have excluded all the mods I have and I discovered that the crash disappeared without your mod only. Please verify.
    • FlyingsCool
      5 month(s) ago
      Yes, there is a bug.. see the above post. To fix it, remove the lines associated with the "LW_cfg.xml" file from the layout.json file. They've introduced some kind of bug with that subsystem. I tried using even the default file, and it still causes a CTD. I'm submitting the bug now.

    Sorry, but this Airport crash in Montreal to CTD after the last Update in MSFS 1.10.8.0
    • FlyingsCool
      5 month(s) ago
      I'm sorry, what does Montreal have to do with it? I wish you could put formatting in comments, I'm sorry this is so hard to read.
      ******
      If you don't mind, please step through the following steps to see if we can find the issue with your installation. I just tried it myself both last night and just now and I'm not getting a crash. I am only using default objects, nothing I created myself besides a texture on the tarmac. I'm not using any "default" names as far as I know that might conflict with another scenery.

      ******How are you instigating the crash?
      ******Do you have the latest update of the airport? (not that previous version should crash it either, I've never had a CTD at or near the airport)
      ******Have you removed everything from your Community folder except for the airport and tried it and still get the CTD?
      **************************************

      My first thought would be that you have a bad livery, and MSFS is trying to create an AI plane with it? Perhaps my scenery has too much detail for your computer? I doubt it as I only have a 4790K, 16GB, and a 2070Super, so my computer is not all that powerful and I keep most settings at Ultra.

      Were you using an external camera at the time...
      This error apparently just popped up with the latest update...

    I wasnt expecting someone to do anything with this airport but you proved me wrong! I fly out of Nashua daily as a flight instructor, thank you for giving this little class delta some love!

      Wanna take on a student? Got my license back in '96, have about 220 hours, owned a share in a Cherokee for a long time (N15802), but haven't flown consistently since 2001, and I want to get back up in the air again.

    I had no idea this airport existed, but your history lesson made it a must download for future VFR flying. Thanks!

      Thanks! 😊 In real life, for a quick flight I like to fly into KAFN Silver Ranch (there's a Kimball's ice cream there that I should probably put in, haha) and maybe circle Mt Monadnock. For a longer flight, I used to love to fly up to an airport up in Wolfeboro that's closed now.. I should bring it back. The west end of the runway flew right out over Lake Wnnipesaukee into the sunset. Beautiful. But Laconia is a good choice. In winter, when the lake freezes over, Alton Bay Seaplane base opens up on the ice 😊

    Excellent. Clever use of the default buildings to emulate the deck at the Midfield Cafe. One of my favorite breakfast places in Nashua! Nicely done.

    Downloading now. Thanks for the effort and providing a bit of your history with the airport. I enjoy utilizing airport addons when they mean so much to the designer. I hope to dive in and do my hometown airport, Thanks and take care.
