File Description:
Pioneer Field is in Valdez Alaska, between the mountains to the north and the water of Valdez Arm to the south. It used to cater for a lot of the work for the Alaskan pipline and the nearby terminal and in the middle 1970's it was a very busy place. That is not the case now, and the tower is no longer manned though there is still an average of 35 flights a day and there are 30 planes (and helicopters) based at the field. There are three really odd hangars at the western end of the apron, with each of them having 6 "T" hangars which have been joined in a circle; this is the only place I have ever seen this. The recently resurfaced runway is 6,500 feet of 150 feet wide asphalt aligned 6/24 at 121 feet asl. There is also a wide and heavy duty asphalt and gravel surrounding runoff and base, probably because of drainage problems with water from the mountains. Fuel (both JetA and 100LL) is available from ERA Helicopters at the eastern end of the apron. All of the buildings on the field have been modelled specifically for this scenery, plus the nearby accomodation blocks. The AI flights are for the twice-daily ERA/Alaska Air flights using a Bombardier Dash 8-200.
