Delchdork Airport (ICAO: SLDD) was a public fixed platform airport located primarily in the 'Delchdork' region of eastern Nautilus. From June 2014, the facility also expanded into the neighbouring 'Tschotcke' region which was re-purposed as a heliport.
- Airport is a free-floating platform above the surface at appox 37m elevation. Facilities located below airport platform. Recommended minimum approach 40m.
Formerly occupied by the Black Bird Skyport, in May 2014 'Delchdork' became host to a large commercial airport named after the region. Located on a region-sized platform suspended above the water, Delchdork was equipped with dual runways and a spacious dock underneath capable of accommodating most water-craft. Also located at sea-level was 7seas fishing and a retro-style 50's Diner.
The facility also had a mid-sized, modern terminal building with ATC tower, vendors and a waiting lounge with bar. During June 2014, Delchdork Airport expanded into the neighbouring 'Tschotcke' region where a large heliport with extra hangar space and vendors was constructed. To the south-west a hospital facility was also constructed for role-play purposes.
Following a spate of attacks on the airport by deliberately disruptive visitors (griefers or trolls), Delchdork Airport closed its doors in late October 2014 and the land was put up for rent.
There are no longer scheduled services to and from Delchdork Airport, as of October 2014.
