Wright Brothers Regional Airfield (ICAO: SLWB) is a dual-runway public airport situated in the 'Jadu' region of north-western Jeogeot. The aerodrome is located on the coast of the Jeogeot Gulf and as such has access to its large rez-enabled combat area designed for World War II and modern naval warfare. This is the home too for SLCG Substation Jadu.

Landing Advisories

  • Content-restricted Airfield
  • Airspace is uncontrolled. Pilots are advised to communicate on channel (Group) 122.8 Unicom, to declare their intentions.
  • Paved runway has a displaced threshold of 20m on the 27 Approach. This is due to a raised retaining wall on the eastern edge of the Airfield. The runway is lit and marked, and has a PAPI style VASI on both ends.
  • Grass Strip is marked but unlit.
  • Ban lines to the East, on the northern edge of 'Satang' . Pilots are advised to extend their  27 Approach / 09 departure to avoid them.
  • Small Parcel Ban lines along the northern edge of airport (single dwellings on either side of the seaplane ramp). Northern retaining wall marks the airport property boundary,

Background

Founded August 5th, 2014, Wright Brothers Regional Airfield was a response to a Linden Initiative to help resettle the long neglected continent of Jeogeot, and has been constructed with an "aviation community first" attitude. In terms of design, the airport is envisioned as a "County Regional Airport", which was formerly a U.S. Army Air Corps bomber training base. Three large corrugated hangars on the south side of the airfield sit as reminders of those days.

The airfield is set up for general aviation and small-to-medium commercial traffic. It possesses two runways; a paved and lit east/west runway, and an angled, unlit grass strip (both 250m x 20m), crossing the paved strip in the center. Facilities available for rental include eleven hangars, eleven tie-down spaces and five boat slips (all of which are clustered to the north and south of the property). Refuelling is provided by a dedicated fuel truck located in the north-west corner alongside an airport beacon and the aerodrome's FBO (Field Base of Operations) - a mid-sized wooden building based on a real-life FBO located at Dare County Regional Airport (ICAO: KMQI) in Manteo, North Carolina. The FBO serves as the airport's main administrative building and is also home to the SL Coast Guard's (SLCG) Substation Jadu.

In September 2015 the facility underwent some minor construction-work in the north-west corner, replacing the airfield's small, and somewhat steep, seaplane ramp with three rentable quonset huts and an underground bomb shelter/tunnel system (located directly underneath the airfield's FBO building).
