Papua New Guinea Tour Tour Details

Status: Active
Description: Papua New Guinea is a beautifully lush and mountainous country in Oceania that comprises the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and its offshore islands in Melanesia in Indonesia.

Inspired by "Missionary Bush Pilot" (YouTube), this tour has almost all hard surface runways with a lot of coastal airports although there may be a mountain version with smaller airports in the future.

The default aircraft is the DHC-6 Twin Otter and is best flown in something low and slow like DHC-2(MSFS), a bush plane or even a C172. About half of the legs are under 100 miles but there are a couple over 200 miles.

I have verified that all airports are available in MSFS, XP-12 and P3dv5 although this is probably best flown in MSFS if you have it because of the scenery.
