South Australia Fund Raising Project by IZ0JUB 2020

  • Shall we call it the South Australia Fundraiser project? I've discovered there are 300 airports in SA, but I could focus on Adelaide Int'l and 4 or 5 others within your ortho. https://ourairports.com/countries/AU/SA/


  • IZ0JUB

    Changed the title of the thread from “Australia by IZ0JUB 2020” to “South Australia Fund Raising Project by IZ0JUB 2020”.
  • Can you suggest one particular fundraising site? We could simply trust people and say if you download the scenery please make a donation to it. Maybe they could also add a comment to flight sim.org of how much and it would be possible to know what the total is.

    Thank you guys for your interest in the Aussie situation. As far as where to donate goes this one is probably one of the best single points, and it has a section for overseas donors.

    They are also a large organisation with proven integrity so you know your money is going to be well spent.


    On the other hand, and as I mentioned a few posts ago, if you want to donate to support ecological regrowth and the ongoing efforts to aid wildlife (1.25 billion animals dead or will die because of the bushfires) you can go to this site. Also a large and well organised group.

    I have started a thread called Bushfire donations and made an initial donation where you can record what you have donated. I am not fond of doing this as folk will give what they can afford and sometimes it is not always as much as they would like to. But, it does give some idea of what your efforts have raised for the charities.

  • Here are some more of the organisations that are accepting donations:


    Red Cross

    South Australian Country Fire Service Foundation (SA)

    Victorian Country Fire Association (VIC)

    Queensland Rural Fire Brigades Association (QLD)

    NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW)

    The Association of Volunteer Bush Fire Brigades (WA)


    Regarding Adelaide region airports ...


    Here is a quick rundown on some key airports which provided support in the area.


    Adelaide International - International Hub (used for bringing in firefighters from all over the world)

    Parafield - Regional GA (used as base for flight training)

    Gawler - Glider, Small GA (used as base for firebombing in the Adelaide Hills)

    RAAF Edinburgh - Large airforce base (used as base for large firebombing aircraft across the region)

    Kingscote - Regional GA (used as base for firebombing in the Kangaroo Island)


    Flying over this area in AFS2 really gives you an appreciation for the size and extent of the fires (still burning today)

    The extent of the fire front / burnt area can be viewed at the following link:

    Your donations are gratefully received and thanks to everyone who is contributing to this project

    Having spent time looking at the three areas Adelaide is of reasonable quality with some cultivation whereas both Kangaroo Island and Warooka are poor quality images with very little cultivation. With this in mind I'm looking at maybe making another tile or two, Perth has been mentioned in the West any thoughts and or suggestions please and remember I'm not out to conquer Australia!


    Sample Pictures of Kangaroo Island and Warooka areas.
