Custer Airfield and the nearby town of Monroe, MI. Custer Airfield is small public airstrip located just 20 miles south of KDTW Detroit. The airfield was created in 1946 and originally used as a bombing practice area. There are still signs to this day warning of digging and metal detecting as there have been recent discoveries of unexploded ordinance. Monroe, known for the partial meltdown of its Fermi II nuclear facility back in 1966 (included as POI), is located on Lake Erie’s western coast. KTTF Custer is in perfect range to some exciting destinations, such as New York City, Chicago, Cincinnati, Boston, Washington D.C. & Toronto.

Attitude Simulations has develop an airfield that will offer the real world pilot and avid simmer the ability to simulate realistic VFR training as well as a tough workload in instrument conditions. Working in the pattern at Custer (KTTF) you will notice an incredible amount of detail below that helps to bring in a great feeling of immersion as well as flying so close to DTW and having to be aware of the Class Bravo shelf and altitude restrictions in the area. When DTW is landing to the North the traffic comes in directly overhead of KTTF. This presents many challenges and for online pilots it will be a fun place to fly their GA aircraft on busy nights.

Helicopter pilots will find themselves getting lost in the details. With several helipads and fun landing zones off field, you air beaters will love simulating medical emergencies and police operations in Monroe, MI. I implore all of those police pilots to search for some illegal operations hiding in the bushes. Utility & charter helicopter pilots should depart from KTTF and give the raised platform at The DTE Fermi II Nuclear plant a shot. Gusty winds off of Lake Erie can make the final approach a bit rough but tons of fun!
