File Description:
Sisimiut is on the west coast of Greenland. It is around 125 miles south of Aasiaat, and 80 miles west of Kangerlussuaq airport, which is currently the largest commercial airfield in Greenland. Sisimiut has a population of 5,500 and the main occupations are fishing, tourism, education, and a growing industrial base. It has the northernmost year-round ice-free port in Greenland, though icebergs floating down from the north are commonplace. The airport is across a bridge and along a two mile road on the north side of an inlet, northwest of the town. The runway is 2,600+ feet of asphalt almost 100 feet wide and lit, aligned 20/02 and at 33 feet ASL, with the apron and terminal building at the eastern end. The building is identical to the one at Aasiaat. Air Greenland run regular flights with a Dash-8, Dash-7, or Twin Otters; within FS9 it is impossible to land an Ai Dash-7 on a runway less than 3,000 feet long, so I used a Dash-8. There was no way to replicate both the parking facing away from the terminal AND the "through" taxiing to complete the circle back to the runway; after parking correctly the AI Air Greenland plane will reverse before heading out to take off. The surrounding area is rock with some scruffy grass and low bushes, and there is no grass around the runway; the airfield has compacted gravel instead.
