During the 1930's, the City Council of Pretoria decided to build a landing strip on the farm Wonderboom, approximately 15 km (9.3 mi) north of Pretoria. This was the beginning of Wonderboom Airport (FAWB) and the landing strip was open for air traffic in 1937. Over the years, the airports has been extensively upgraded and the runway lengthened to handle bigger aircraft. More upgrades are planned for the future including scheduled passenger services to and from the airport.
This airport package has been created with as much detail as it was possible without making it impossible to fly in and out of. This airport is so true to life, it is almost like being there! For those who have been to Wonderboom airport before, will immediately recognize the airport layout. Everything is where it is supposed to be from the buildings to the sign boards; even the advertising boards scattered around the land side of the airport!
The airport has been configured for use with Ground Services X. For those that have the package will benefit greatly with added realism on arrival and departure!
The Africa Terrain Mesh is a highly recommended must have package for this airport. Without this package or a similar terrain mesh package installed, the Megallies Berg and the hills around the airport will not be visible as the resolution of the default terrain mesh included with Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Standard/Gold/Steam Edition) as well as Lockheed Martin Prepar3D is too low to show this type of terrain detail.
