MCAS Chase Field (ICAO: MCAS) is a public military airfield located in the Baitoushan region of western Corsica. MCAS Chase Field is home of CNATRA and Training Air Wing 3 (TAW-3) of the SL Marine Corps.
- Elevation advisory: Landing surface located at 67m elevation. Minimum recommended approach at 77m.
Originally located in the 'Fridericus' region of north-eastern Satori, MCAS Chase Field initially lacked a runway and featured two helicopter pads and made use of the adjacent Blake Sea Airport's runway 27L. However, following a major reconstruction of the airfield in February 2014, the airfield was upgraded with its own runway, with taxiway connections available to the south if necessary.
Situated on a platform at 48m elevation, the airfield was mainly composed of a large parking apron (with over a dozen group tie-down spaces) and taxiways, leading to its single 254m x 22m runway along the western edge of the region. At the north end of the facility there was a single helipad and an ATC tower, with two large hangars and an administrative building located along the eastern edge (underneath which there was a retail space featuring numerous vendors).
In early 2017, MCAS Chase Field relocated to the historical sim of Baitoushan, in western Corsica , which previously hosted Baitoushan Intercontinental Airport. The current runways' elevation is at 67 meters and, as of October 2017, the airfield had a 60 minute auto-return policy on rezzed items and a sim-wide limit of 9400 prims.
