Overview: The USFS Cabins, Lighthouses and Oil Rigs

Thanks and Credit to the United States Forestry Service website for the linked information and pictures below.

Welcome to "The Cabins" page of RTMM. One of the most interesting features of Tongas X, PFJ and SAK software packages are the addition of USFS cabins, lighthouses and oil rig platforms into the beautiful FSX scenery of Alaska. Many are so tiny you will rarely see them at altitudes above 1200 feet. This page is dedicated to those "low and slow flying" pilots that enjoy seeking out the many cabins, lighthouses and oil rigs that are nested and often slightly hidden in the complex and realistic scenery of Alaska. These Payware addon programs added many of the cabins, but they did not add many that are actually there. RTMM has gone down the complete list of USFS cabins and has added all the ones that were missing from each area. We added over 80 locations to complete the package. This page now represents ALL of the USFS cabins in our area (Tongass/PFJ/SAK). You will be able to tell where the cabin came from. those from SAK will have a an "S" after the location name, Tongass X added cabins will have a "T", and PFJ will have a "P" after the location name. If you see an "R" after a cabin location, you will know this is one RTMM has added for you, and is included in the "missing cabins" download. No lighthouses were added by RTMM, as they are all present. Also, the only oil platforms are those put in by SAK in the Kenia area.

RTMM also has created a picture for each location from an actual screenshot (384 of them). Maps and flight plans were created for ALL cabins. Each location has a mooring or starting point. If you use the map feature in FSX, these coordinates will place you at the best mooring for the location, a magnetic heading starts you out lined up correctly at the location. You can start at a cabin and fly back to an airport of your choice. This gives you maximum flexibility in deciding how you want to use the information. On this page, you will find Installation Instructions and downloads for the following:

  • RTMM Missing Cabins. All of the cabins that were NOT included in the Tongas X, PFJ and SAK payware programs are included in this download. Adding this to your scenery folder will make sure you have ALL of the cabins of the USFS in our area. Click on the Zip button below to download it.
  • FSDiscover! dat file. All of the cabins, lighthouses and oil rigs are now in a separate "misty_cabins.dat" file that puts them into your FSDiscover program. So as you are flying with this program "on," you will see the cabin names listed on your screen as you fly. Click on the zip button below to download it.
  • RTMM Objects Library. You will find a link to the latest RTMM Object library file. Be sure you have
    this, not only for the cabins, lighthouses and oil rigs, but for all RTMM locations. Click on the zip button
    below to download it.
  • CSV File for Plan-G - Dieter Linde has added all of the cabins from the payware and RTMM's freeware to the Plan-G dat file that you can download below. All of them show up as waypoints in Plan-G. Click
    on the zip button below to download it.

All of the cabins on this page (except for 2 and so indicated) are real and actually exist. If you click on the name of the cabin, you will find you have linked to the actual USFS web page that describes the cabin and how to rent it, supplies you will need, etc. For the "rookie" FSX Bush Pilot, flying "the cabins" is great fun and a great learning tool. Each comes with a map so you can see what you trip will look like, each comes with a flight plan that will take you to it by using your GPS and autopilot. And all have a picture of the destination so you can be looking for it as you approach. We hope you enjoy the vast amount of informaion on this page and visit ofen for a new flight adventure. If you find a broken link, let us know (contact@mistymoorings.com). There are over 1000 links on this page, so a broken link can happen now and then.

Enjoy the journey ....

Installation and Instructions

Most of the USFS Cabins are part of the PFJ, Tongass Fjords X and SAK Scenery Packages. However, there are over 90 cabin locations missing. RTMM has created scenery locations for each of the missing locations and added them for you in the zip file (with installation instructions and NOTAMs) that you can download below:

Zip Button <--- "RTMM Missing Cabins" FSX Scenery File (updated 03.10.2016)

Zip Button <--- To/From Flight Plans to all cabin and lighthouse locations (Read Readme) (08.17.2014)

Zip Button <--- For FSDiscover! Only - (updated 05.03.2013) (View File)

Obj Library Button <--- Remember To update your libraries for FSXDX10 and Prepar3D if you have not done so.

Zip Button <--- CSV file for Plan G for the RTMM Cabins Page by Dieter Linde (updated 05 23.2013)

Zip Button <--- RTMM FLIGHT PLANS.ZIP - flight Plans for all Cabins and RTMM locations in one download.

NOTAM: Project statistics: There are a total of 231 cabins that have been created by Tongass X, PFJ, SAK and RTMM. Of those RTMM created 115 locations. Each location has a screen shot, 228 screen shots. Each has a map, 231 created maps, each has a flight plan again 231. RTMM created all of these for all 21 cabins. With links to the USFS for each location, the total number of links for the project is 912.

NOTAM: As of 07.08.2013, all of the cabins are DX-10 and P3D Ready. If you have DX-10 Previewed, download the zip file and replace the RTMM Missing Cabins folder with this one. All of the invalid scenery objects are now valid for DX-10.

The Lighthouses

The Lighthouses: Below are the lighthouses and lightstations that are faithfully represented by the PFJ and SAK. Be sure you have the latest service pack update for PFJ. Clicking on the "location name" will take you to the "Friends of the Lighthouse" page for that location. Each has a gps position for the actual structure and a gps setting for the "mooring" or probably starting point. As you visit each lighthouse, go to the Friends of the Lighthouse site and read about each. There are some fascinating stories about their histories. All of the pictures are per courtesy of their site. Please visit it by clicking on the LightHouseFriends.com image to the right. (See Special Comments for Plan G, etc.) HERE is a GOOGLE MAP listing all the lighthouses in Alaska. HERE is a GOOGLE MAP for all the lighthouses in BC. The PFJ Lighthouses are listed first, the SAK lighthouses are in the second group below.

Mike Mann's British Columbia Lighthouses

Mike Mans Lighthouses pic

NOTAM From Mike Mann:

I include for your enjoyment a selection of eighteen lighthouses from the Pacific Northwest area of British Columbia. The criteria for the selection of lighthouses was that they have a helipad and were staffed and operated by the Canadian Coast Guard. All these lightstations are based on their real world counterparts, no fictitious locations are included here.

The design philosophy of these lightstations was, from the outset of this project, keep it frame rate friendly. The simplicity of the structures and their remote nature help to ensure that frame rates are kept high even on fairly modest powered computers.

Although all the lighthouses I have included in this package have a helipad, this scenery will also benefit bush pilots flying coastal British Columbia; lighthouses make great VFR location indicators!

Regards, Mike Mann

2. BC Lighthouses Light Fix uses my new custom lighthouse light effect. This fix will only work with my BC PNW Lighthouses project.

Oil Rig Platforms

The SAK Software Package from ORBX has added oil platforms in the Kenai area. The "rigs" are the same scenery object, so don't expect to see something "different" when you find one. We are highlighting the rigs because it is an opportunity to sharpen your VOR Navigation skills. We have created a table (below) that gives you the latitude and longitude for the helipads at each oil platform. The table also gives you the radial and distance to fly from the ENA VOR (Kenai). If you use this link Flight Simulator Navigation, you will be able to learn many of the basic skills you will need to become an expert VOR Navigation pilot. Also, to add to your fun, we have created a new MM-Ops location scenery for you (see below). So you can fly from either Kenai Municipal or MM-Ops to "find" and "service" the rigs.

Helo Pilots: You can use the Latitude/Longitude data on the table below to position yourself on any helipad on any of the oil platforms. So you can start at a rig ready to fly back to base, or start at one to find another.

Float Plane: You can fly from base to the rigs and land nearby the rigs. At MM-Ops there is both a dirt runway (for amphibians) and a float plane dock. If you are looking for a starting position, add one "minute" to the Latitude ... this will put you near the rig using the MAP feature in FSX (NOTAM #1 below), but not start you out on the helipad.

Ships and Boats: You can "cruise" to and among the rigs to service them. This would be realistic navigation for a ship or a boat ... you can use the same data an aircraft uses. For a starting/mooring position, add one minute to the latitude and use the MAP feature in FSX (See NOTAM #1 below).

Using VOR navigation getting from base to a rig is a good starting training tool. But it becomes more complicated (and more rewarding) to fly from rig to rig, "seeking" a new radial and distance. All of this can be enhanced using FSDiscover. This program (outside payware) puts the name of all the rigs onto your "windshield" so you can be sure you are arriving at the correct target rig. The rigs are all in the "misty cabins.dat" file that you can download from the Installation Table at the top of this page. Below is the rig information table:

OIl Rig List

RTMM has added a scenery location called MM-OPS (Misty Moorings Oil Platform Services) near the Kenai airport. From this location you can fly to the rigs with float planes, helicopters or moor ships and boats and travel to them by water. This can be downloaded from the scenery page under "M" for MM-Ops. The package also adds a VOR object you can actually "see" near the airport, positioned at the exact location of VOR ENA.

MM Ops Pic

Flying to the rigs at night can be particularly fun. MM Ops is all "night lighted friendly" ... even with runway indicators as you are landing and taking off that will help you with night time operations. The rigs are "lighted" so they are easy to see and land on, or by at night. Starting locations (using the MAP feature of FSX) allow you to start at an exact point at MM-Ops. The starting points are as follows:

• Heli: N60 32.99 / W151 15.93 Mag 340
• Dirt: N60 32.99 / W151 15.75 Mag 238
• Float/Ship: N60 32.95 / W151 15.73 Mag 231

NOTAM #1: When you click on FSX "Map" ... enter the Latitude and Longitude, set your altitude for 0 (zero), and add in the Magnetic Heading. When you click "OK" to leave the MAP feature, you will be placed exactly where you want to be. For Heli Operations, you can use the Latitude and Longitude given in the table above and this will place you on the helipad at the oil rig. When you have this figured out, then learn how to use the radials and distances from the VOR to fly from rig to rig! (There is always more to learn!)

Oil Rig Sunset Pic

NOTAM #2: All of the oil platforms have been put into the "missing cabins.dat" file for FSDiscover. So if you are using that program, the names of the rigs will appear on your screen as you are flying, helping you to locate them. You can find the misty cabins.dat file at the top of this page under Installation.

Special Comments from RTTM

Updating "The Cabins" Page - (What to Expect)

With SAK being added, the number of cabins has increased significantly. SAK put in a few of them, but by far, not all of them. If a cabin's co-ordinates are in RED, then that cabin is not yet in the "Missing Cabins" zip file. We will be adding these one at a time, hopefully, until we have them all. When an "area" is complete it will show in the site's NOTAMs. When that happens, the FSDiscover! file will be updated, the Readme for the Missing Cabins will be updated and the zip file for the missing cabins will be updated. But for now, any cabin that is in bold and has both structure and starting point coordinates is "active". There is a picture of it, a map of how to get to it, and a flight plan you can download.

"Still" Missing Shelters.

There are four structures that cannot be accessed by aircraft, so these were intentionally left off this list.

FSDiscover! Databases

FSDiscover! Database: All of the above locations, including the missing cabins, have been added to a special "dat" file for FSDiscover called mistycabins.dat this and the "dat" file for over 400 special Misty Fjords locations and featureS (USFS Cabins and Lighthouses) are available at the top of the MAP ROOM.

Flying Misty - In the Air!

(M) Maps and (F) Flights: Looking at the Plan-G (M) map will give you a rough idea where the structure is located. If you use the Flight Plan (F), you will see the route on a gps and can either follow the route or take a shortcut of your choice. These routes are not meant for boats, only planes, as they use islands for waypoints.

Cruising Misty - On the Water!

(S) Sail Plans and (C) Charts: We are adding an "on the water" aspect to Return to Misty Moorings. We are developing "sail plans" that are safe boating gps routes and "charts"of PLAN-G maps to see the cruise. (The first one of these is for Phocena Bay, you will notice the "S" and "C" at that listing above. "S" downloads the gps route (flight plan) and "C" will either download a detailed Cruise Plan or a Simple Map of the route.

Bear Safety in Alaska

Bear Safety PicIf you're in Alaska, you are probably in bear country!
One of the things that make Alaska special are the three types of bears that call this land their home. Whether you are hiking in the wilderness or biking on a city path here in Alaska, it is important for you to know bear safety basics.  

Bear Cubs Pic

Here are some things to keep in mind when you are traveling in bear country:

 

  • Be a Noisy Hiker. Have you ever had a friend sneak up behind you and yell "BOO!"? Bears don't like surprises any more than people do. When you hike make lots of noise to avoid startling bears. Sing, talk, or wear a bell. Traveling in groups is a good idea too.
  • Give Bears Space. Bears have a big personal bubble. Give them lots of room so they don't feel threatened.  
  • Respect a Bear's Meal. A stinky dead moose near a trail could be a bear's lunch. If you see a dead animal leave the area. Bears are protective of their food. 
  • Keep a Clean Camp. Cook and store food away from your camp. Food smells can tempt bears. If they learn that they can get food from humans, bears can become dangerous and may have to be destroyed.
  • Leave Your Dog at Home. Fido is a great friend, but barking dogs can really stress out bears. Dogs have been known to lead angry bears back to their humans. Remember; bears and pets don't mix!
