UGMS Mestia Queen Tamar Airport


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately not a lot going on in this Division. I will try to make a little more advertising for it. In the meantime I will continue to introduce some of the airports and their sceneries, as it can get quite interesting.  This scenery is available for FSX and Prepar3Dv4.


Mestia is a little mountainous village in Georgia with round about 2,000 inhabitants. Despite its small size, it serves as an economic and cultural center for the Svaneti region. In 2012, large parts of the city were renovated and cleaned up to promote tourism. In winter Mestia is a popular ski resort and in summer mainly hikers and mountaineers come to visit.

The Airport

The airfield in Mestia was named after Queen Tamar, who ruled the country in the 12th and 13th centuries. In 2010, the airfield was completely rebuilt. Before there was only a grass track whereas today there is a paved runway (02/20) of 1,200m length. Due to the high mountains and narrow valleys the approach is considered particularly demanding. To make matters worse, the airfield has no navigation aids. So you are completely dependent on good visibility.

Since 2015 Vanilla Sky flies regularly to Natakhtari (near Tbilisi) and Kutaisi with a LET410. In 2017, more than 7,000 passengers were handled at Mestia Airport. A 70 percent increase over the previous year.







Next time it'll get more interesting for the tubeliners ?
