Eagle field- 09PA Port Matilda PA Private Glider field Owned by Karl Striedieck. Karl is a world record setting glider pilot and a member of the U.S. Soaring Hall of Fame. He was an early pioneer of ridge soaring in the Ridge-and-valley Appalachians in the 1960s, ultimately setting nine world records flying gliders there. He was selected for the U.S. national soaring team 12 times, and won a silver medal in the world championships in 1978 and 1983. Mr. Striedieck was a U.S. Air Force pilot from 1959 to 1962, flying the F-86 Sabre and F-102 Delta Dagger, then continued his military service until 1981 in the Pennsylvania Air National Guard, where he transitioned to the A-7 Corsair II. A year before graduating from Pennsylvania State University in 1965, he started flying gliders when he and Bill Clark co-founded the Nittany Soaring Club, flying out of the former State College Air Depot. He has over 15,000 flying hours, with nearly half of that total in gliders. Mr. Striedieck moved his home to the Eagle Field private airport on top of Bald Eagle Mountain, near State College, Pennsylvania in 1966, and now lives there with his second wife, Iris. Basically a manicured farm field, this private glider field offers access to the famous ridge lift of central Pennsylvania. Nearby Ridge Soaring is another one of my airfields available.

Ridge Soaring 79N Ridge Soaring Gliderport (79N) is a public-use glider airport located two nautical miles (4 km) southwest of the central business district of Unionville, in Centre County, Pennsylvania, United States. It is privately owned by Knauff & Grove, Inc. Tom Knauff and Doris grove are among the whos who in American and International soaring community. Portions of the 1999 movie The Thomas Crown Affair were filmed here. Co-owner Thomas L. Knauff set five FAI world records, and over 50 NAA national records flying from this airport. Co-owner Doris Grove set three FAI feminine world records flying from this airport, and was the first woman to fly a glider more than 1000 km. This FBO airport is world famous for ridge, thermal and wave soaring. It is located on U.S. Route 220 (alternate) 8 miles south of Interstate 80, between Unionville and Julian, at the base of the Bald Eagle Mountain ridge. It is approximately 10 miles from State College and approximately midway between Altoona and Lock Haven in the Bald Eagle Valley. Visitors can look at an entire wall of U.S. National and World records that have been set from this airfield. Sadly as with so many small airports, Ridge Soaring is in risk of disappearing. for sale for many years, with no takers it may be sold to developers and disappear forever. In FSX the airport was on the wrong side of the highway and cut into a mountain, I moved it to its proper location and heading, made the runway the correct size and heading, and added all the current buildings.

Harris Hill Emergency Field This is a simple add on for those who want the ultimate realism for their Harris Hill scenery by me. See my Harris hill scenery here. This is the Emergency landing strip for gliders that can't make the main field due mostly to congestion at the end of a busy competition day, but also serves for those who find themselves to low to make the field. There is no ICAO code for this field so it is simply designated HHEM for FSX. I changed the land class for the valley in which it resides so as to reflect more accurately what is actually there.If your using another landclass product you may see some difference from the screen shots. I tested with ORBX World and UTX.

4NY8- Harris Hill Harris Hill is known as the soaring Capital of the U.S. because of its' history, Martin Schempp(German soaring pioneer) "discovered" the area while traveling on business in the 1930's. (He worked in Pittsburgh PA at the time) Elmira NY is situated in a valley surrounded by hills facing several different prevailing wind possibilities. Presented with outstanding bungee launch points for any wind condition, several national soaring contests were held there before World War Two. Harris Hill is the only remaining of the original slope sites, and is now home to Harris Hill soaring Corporation and the National Soaring Museum. The former Schweizer Aircraft Co.is located below Harris Hill at KELM, was before its closing, the only family owned sailplane manufacturer and aerospace contractor in the U.S. They ceased making sailplanes in the 1980's and continued in the Aircraft manufacturing business until selling to Sikorsky in 2004. If you like this scenery I also plan to publish a new KELM - Elmira Corning Regional Airport, as well as the Harris Hill emergency field with new land class. Feel free to contact me via email directly if you are interested and can't locate it online. All my sceneries will be published on AVSIM, and Simviation. Included: This package includes Harris Hill field, The Harris hill Youth camp site, and Harris hill Park and Driving range.All buildings are represented as close as possible to the actual structures.

KELM, Elmira Corning Regional Airport, New York. This is an expanded airport package including all the most recent buildings at Elmira Corning Regional Airport KELM. Included are the Sikorsy building and recent runway extensions. I added some staic aircraft to the now defunt National Warplane Museum, and Schweitzer plant. These are a historical reference to better days in the past for KELM. Now that Sikosky has closed, there are a lot of disused structures there. I also added the local Mall and a local industrial park that was once home to an RC club, the field was sometimes used as a glider emergency landing field. It no longer exists in the real world. Look for it north east of the airport.
