SLAD: Tori Bay Airport

world-map

If you are looking an airport destination that’s perfect for flying and sailing to, the mainland of Satori has several airport destinations to select. This destination I chose for my third Second Life Airport Destination an airport as it took my immediate attention while exploring Satori by helicopter.

Located at a sim called Adergrove is, Tori Bay Airport. A mountain themed airport.

First opened as a maritime paint store in April 2015, Tori Bay was converted to an airport in October 2016 with a Japanese theme based in part of the owner is of Japanese descent and having a love of birds. Which is why this airport is called, Tori. A Japanese word for bird. Tori is also the gate one passes through to sacred space for meditation and spiritual enlightenment.

Tori Bay Airport was built as a non-traditional airport which has three levels. The first level is located at 30m. Hangers are caves with an office with spacious room. Relaxation activities includes a 7Seas vendor and tent with campfire but more important is the calming water effect.

The second or mid level airport is 85m. It is the mid mountain used for the transport of cargo and goods. From my own personal perspective, the mid mountain level is also for commercial airlines to access as there is a terminal for human passage. Located here.

The third or top level of the mountain is the research level for scientists. You can also find Airplane Paint Shop(Asgard Aviation) at 240m.

To move from level to level you can take their TP points or if you are anything like me and want to add a little fun, fly. Takes a little longer but it’s more fun than hopping on a TP stand.

If you are looking for transport activities, these include Skyward Fly-In’s which is  a smuggling game where you earn rewards and GTFO money. There also various parties so bring your dancing shoes to wiggle to the DJ’s tunes.

Don’t hesitate to contact anyone from Tori Bay Airport management. I found Ravin Asgard easy to get in touch with as well as being a friendly ball of energy keen to help with inquiries.

For access by air, Tori Bay Airport was easy for me to navigate with minimal issues which is amazing considering the internet connection issues I was experiencing this week. My first trip was by helicopter which was easy to approach with though I don’t remember seeing any helipads so aim for the grass in the mid and top levels of this mountain airport.

If you are traveling by boat or seaplane, there are several Linden Islands to visits to stop by including pirate islands. And don’t drink all the rum. You don’t want me asking, “But where’s all rum gone?”

Tori Bay Airport is part of the Valhalla group. If you enjoy this beautiful airport, you may enjoy their Aztec themed airport, Asgard Aviation North found at Silver Serpent. Check it out here.

Oh, do you want to know what I found myself wanting to do at Tori Bay while exploring one of the buildings? Self enlightenment through the practice of martial arts. You need to bring your own skills if you find yourself in the same motivation is me. And a little rest in the tent nearby.

If you want realism, this isn’t the airport for you but it has some realism in the runway set up and minimal lighting. This week’s airport destination is one you should visit to relax. To get away from all the concrete and mechanical noises so whether you travel by air or sea, Tori Bay Airport is one awesome destination.

I used several aircraft this week; D-300, D Arrow VI, D 139, Wilder Seawind, Grumman F6F Hellcat, JM Avanti and Farman III. As well as by boat; Bandit R25.

Remember, if you have a destination you would like me to consider whether it is aviation related or anything else really, contact me through Second Life by IM. I’m easy to find in search as; Sheree Honeyflower(LifeOfSheree) or at my office located at Sheree’s Garden Cafe.
