Dien Bien Phu Airport (IATADINICAOVVDB) (VietnameseSân Bay Điện Biên Phủ) is located at Điện Biên Phủ in Vietnam.

 

History[edit]

Điện Biên Phủ Airport was established in 1954 as Mường Thanh Airfield. The main purpose of it is to serve the French HQ in Điện Biên Phủ at the time of the First Indochina War.

4 years after the French left Điện Biên Phủ, in 1958, commercial flights to the airport started, operated by the Air Force, but only for a while due to the low demand at the time. In 1984, along with the 30th Anniversary of the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, flights from Hanoi to Điện Biên Phủ resumed, operated by the Antonov An-24. 10 months later, in January 30th 1995, this route is once again suspended because of the runway needed to be repaired. After the repair, flight resumed, this time being operated by the ATR 72. In 2004, the airport's apron is extended to 12000 square meters, with 4 parking stands for ATR 72 aircraft.

Facilities[edit]

Today, Điện Biên Phủ Airport is the largest and only commercial airport serving the city of Điện Biên Phủ in particular and the entire Northwest region of Vietnam, after the closure of Nà Sản Airport in 2004. It is located in the middle of a basin at an altitude of 1.611 meters above sea level. The sole runway (16/34) has a concrete surface and a length 1830 meters (6003 ft) long and width of 30m (98.4 ft), large enough to accommodate aircraft such as the ATR 72 or the Fokker F70 and potentially the Embraer E190 and E195 with some payload restrictions as demonstrated by Bamboo Airways' use of the jets at Con Dao Airport, which has a similar-length runway.

The apron and taxiway is 7500 square meters wide, with 4 parking stands for aircraft. The terminal is 2500 square meters wide and is capable of serving 4 flights per day.

Challenges[edit]

Due to its geographical position, the airport's runway cannot be extended to serve larger aircraft such as the Airbus A320 familyBoeing 737 and similar. The installation of night lights and modern guidance systems is also not possible due to the atmospheric and weather conditions at the airport, render it only capable of serving daytime flights. Also, the cancel rate of flights to Dien Bien Phu is also higher than other routes, due to the unpredictable and inclement nature of the weather at the airport.

And due to its short runway and the aircraft type serving it, the airport can only serve short-haul routes, such as Hanoi- Dien Bien Phu or Hai Phong-Dien Bien Phu.

The Good: ---------
- o - Gorgeous Terminal with fully modelled airside interior with animated peeps. o - Detail models in general with HD texturing with PBR materials. o - Most buildings 3D modelled. o - 72 FPS in the PMDG 737 sitting at the terminal with no AI traffic running on my HIGH/ULTRA settings. o - Nicely lit terminal area and cargo area at night. Interior lighting good. The Bad: ----------
- o - Disonnected Jetways. They are off by a foot or two on many gates. o - HOLY BLUE EDGE LIGHTS BATMAN! Way to many edge lights. These need to be hand placed. Wish devs would stop relying on the SDK's stringer placement system. Make a 3D light model and hand place it in the proper locations! o - Night lighting missing from areas where it should be such as the parking lots and the west side ramps of the airport. There are HUGE 32' tall ramp lights there in real life. o - Lumberjacks need to cut down some trees on the airport grounds. Way to many trees taht don't belong on the airport grounds. o - Extremely low LOD level on the ground taxi markings making them pop in to view from the cockpit. We should never see taxi line textures popping into existence in visual range from the cockpit. o - Lack of clutter in cargo area and across the whole airport in general. Needs more lived in look. o - Weird terrain mesh in places but at least its not near the terminal area. o - Some poor ground marking mistakes Ove-
r all a decent start to KIND but there are some pretty bad mistakes/ommiss-
ions that show a lack of quality control. A few more days in the developer oven would have made a far better product worthy of 4 to 5 stars. I own all of Dominic's scenery and they get better with each new product as they learn the SDK. Nudge the jetways to the building, remove the excess edge lights, fix broken ground markings and bad LOD and toss some cargo containers and palettes in the cargo ramps and we'll have a winner!

Very disappointed. Color adjustment leaves trees and building shadows blue. Too many red roofs for houses, which is not usual for Montreal. Only conifer trees, when it is mostly broadleaf for Montreal. Many flat roofs are shimmering, which is annoying. Density of trees is also too sparse. I should not have bought it.

Tried the free 7-day trial and couldn't fly without the camera shake effects again after that. Great customization options and great developer support as well.
