Flight Rules

Eden is a series of over 50 wonderful scenic sims in Second Life that link together to form a massive, landscaped estate of waterways and islands for naturists to enjoy the clothes-free lifestyle. You have flying and sailing access to all the Eden sims and the Fruit Islands sims – that’s over 190 sims!

  1. To use this airport, you have to accept the Estate Covenant
  2. Take note of the Eden Air Traffic Rules:
    • Armed aerial combat, whether Air-to-Air or Air-to-Ground is strictly forbidden and will be treated as a griefing attempt being dealt swiftly and permanently by the issue of an estate ban and a report to Linden Labs.
    • The minimum operating ceiling is 70m AMSL .
    • Jet powered aircraft, specially the military type have a minimum operating ceiling of 150m AMSL
    • Amphibious fixed wing aircrafts and helicopters can touch down and take off in any of the SIMs as long as they do not enter private parcels while taxiing and as long as they can take off within 1 single SIM leaving enough room to clear the islands across the SIM without danger of crashing.
    • It is strictly forbidden for any aircraft to enter SIMs with a race line from 30 minutes before until 1:30 hour after the announced start time for a sailing event within that SIM (The SIMs with race lines are Breadnut, Eden Auk, and Eden Siskin) After that period a race line SIM is considered as any other and the general estate rules apply.
    • Amphibious capable aircraft will respect the ROW laws that rule maritime traffic when they touch down or taxi on water, being considered motor water crafts while taxiing and so being forced to give ROW to any purely sail driven vessel that crosses their path.
  3. Eden is a naturist resort so the wearing of any clothes, whilst not being banned outright, is actively discouraged. Remember that The North Sea to the South is not naturist, and the Fruit Islands, further South, are certainly not naturist.
  4. Tortuga Bay Airport is intended to be a tropical island airport with seaplane facilities. Large jets are not really suitable and we prefer that you use smaller piston or turboprop planes, although small business jets are allowed.
  5. Please keep your aircraft and equipment within the space allocated to you if you are a renter. If you are a visitor be mindful of where you keep objects. Do not block runways or taxiways. Keep the airport looking tidy.
  6. No griefing, harassment or trouble making. If you are found to be doing any of these thing, you will be banned from the airport, the estate and the region.
