So, need your help, to make it clear if possible.

And thanks in advance.

Cuatro Vientos

Gran Canaria

La Palma

Lanzarote

Malaga

Moron

Hi flyway here you can find info:

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ej%C3%A9rcito_del_Aire_(Espa%C3%B1a)#Unidades,_Centros_y_Organismos

 

Where you see ICAO is airbase sure, in "Ala" or "escuadrón" you can see that there are fleet based, can be transport, fighter jets, trainers, paratroopers, etc. https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ej%C3%A9rcito_del_Aire_(Espa%C3%B1a)#Aeronaves

The information of the wikipedia is quite correct, as far as I know at least.
The link you have written shows you all the units, whether or not they are airfields. You could use the wikipedia table as a list and check it with other sources.
Anyway, someone may know more about the subject and I can confirm your listing. :thumbsu:

Hi, sorry for the late answer. Since the web does't work on tapatalk...

You did pointed it out, Gando should be an air base for sure!

Melilla has never been an air base but it can give some play to the game (not needed IMHO).

Valencia was an airbase and can be used if needed. It could be very good for an historic campaign.

I agree with the rest.

Merry Christmas!

Thank you MrWell for your input.

Your information seem to match my sources... :D

About Melilla, yes, it was considered an airbase somewhere, but I had my doubts. In anycase, considered it to be in higher position for 201VFS POH version.

Valencia and Reus... same. I think they are not active anymore, but they are also good points for navigation and thats why I kept them considered as airbases.

All airbases in POH_201VFS, will have priority regarding Airbase type (cannot be airstripes), Tacan Channels and Comms Freqs.

 

Cheers, and Merry Christmas.

Hey Spark, thanks for your input.

Will not consider it as an airbase, that way.

Got in doubts, because, latest google earth images show some cargo airplanes parked on the south side. Maybe theres a big maintenance facilities there or something like that... thou.

Thank you mate.

Hi guys, as you know it is a little bit difficult take pictgures in a miltiary base...

 

I have other doubt.

 

In San Javier (LELC), the Runway 23R 05L (the real use), is only for turboprop and piston engine aircrafts, and here in the POH the ATC usually send us to this runway, Is any chance to change it ?

 

Thnks guys

The problem is that I do not think BMS distinguishes between turboprops/pistons engines and jets, neither civ vs mil but I don't know. And as in general the Runway 23R-05L is considered military and 23L-05R civilian, may have been the reason that it is so.

I mean that if that is the case, rather than being able to do it by realism, it may be a decision based on the preference of the editor because technical limitations to discriminate between turboprops/pistons engines and jets.

 

Then, is best move traffic to 23L-05R? Can it be to not have problems with the length of the runway for jets aircraft?

 

Dispone de dos pistas. Una de ellas designada como 05R–23L es de uso civil, y tiene
2.320 m de longitud y 45 m. de anchura. La otra, designada como 05L–23R se utiliza
para la operación de aeronaves militares, y sus dimensiones son 1.577 m de longitud y
45 m de anchura.

Hi KaFeTe,

 

 

Thanks for the feedback, but it's already fixed ;)

 

I've followed a friend's request from the EdAV and it's been recently changed . The AI will only use runway 23L-05R from now on.

 

I'm already using internally an update that has that fixed, including new photorealistic buildings for LEAB, LELC and LEZG.

 

The problem is that I would like to reach Joe Labrada (the project leader) and see with him if we could prepare and update for POH 0.8.0 but I haven't heard from him for tha past months...

 

If you like, I can prepare an unnoficial update and post the download link here, at least you can use it if you want.

 

Cheers ;)
