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.

Great Product to use with your F35 or any helo - static but very detailed and a bargain for the price - if you're getting the f35 - get this too when you check out - otherwise you'll be coming back to get it later.

Well, could be even better, but this is a nice DTTA rendition... with special mention for those who are still runningFSX. Very worth the money. Well done Prealsoft. Do recommend adding that Maghreb area airport to your Africa/Mediterr-
ean area sceneries.

As a resident of Indiana and been to this airport hundreds of times, use to ride my Harley around the perimeter road to watch planes, I will say the DDTeam did an awesome job on the terminal and a very good job on the surrounding area. It's not perfect but very close. Indy in MSFS definitely needed some love as it was one of the worse modeled major airports in the sim and is the world headquarters to FedEx so we needed this. I rate this product 9/10 and would def recommend the purchase of it. Looking forward to maybe an update and Looking forward to future offerings from the DDTeam. Thank you DDTeam for showing KIND some love! Good job!

Nice work from Author, for the price point I would have liked to see gate numbering on top of jetways as in real life to better find the gate.
DOMINICDESIGNTEAM - KIND INDIANAPOLIS INTL AIRPORT MSFS

Nice work on terminal and buildings, the design team could better align runways with ground polygon as you can see approach lights and runway lights a bit off and they did correct the taxi light issue quickly. DomincicDesign to earn a 5 star in my opinion needs to improve the detail of the ground textures (use of custom textures/colors away from MSFS default) to the level of other vendors at this price point.

Just like in real life, you don't get to choose where you will be flying. APL v2 did just that. Put you out of your comfort zone, try and survive until you have enough experience.

This app is very powerful. Initially it was a bit difficult to use. It gets easier after watching the youtube video tutorial and practice. In order to get the best angle, u need to familiarize yourself with the drone camera, no shortcut on these.
