Hualien Airport (IATA: HUN, ICAO: RCYU) is a commercial airport located in a civilian area of Chiashan Air Force Base in Xincheng, Hualien County, Taiwan. Hualien Airport currently has a main runway length with 2750m (9000ft) and a military runway (Chiashan Airbase) 2km west side of the airport with length 2400m (8000ft) with a very long connecting taxiway. The Chiashan Airbase is famous for its large caves under the mountain that can store hundreds of fighter jets where China’s war threat is imminent. With domestic flights to Taipei (RCSS), Kaohsiung (RCKH) and Taichung (RCMQ), local carriers use ATR-72, B737, or A320 to fly the community routes. Some international charter flights to South Korea, Japan, China and Macau are available as well. However, this airport is practically a major Taiwan air force base. F-16 fighter jets are highly active in this area. This package provide updated airport environment, and updated aerial imagery.
In MSFS, Chiashan Airbase are embedded into Hualien Airport and the military runway are renamed to 03L/21R (originally same number as RCYU RWY03/21) for sim usage. The connection between Hualien and Chiashan are available. Some military bunkers are available for parking, including bunkers covered under the mountain.
I have to thank Houting for his approval of his brilliant RCYU FSX package to make this project come true. And I also need to thank ranehwa for his magic hand to further enhance this airport. My old friend Rudolfliu also contributes to this project at the early stage. Everything credits to these wonderful people.
