Great airport, everything works, and spotlessly clean.
A bit surprising that Timor Leste has been an independent nation since 2002, yet still appears listed under Indonesia. I notice it is that way in the Jeppesen manuals too.
Lots of high terrain to the south, necessitating a steep descent when quite close to the airport. Runway is pretty rough, but adequate. Lots of helicopters here, mainly associated with UN work.
I enjoyed my visit here, but it is a long way from everywhere.
Of particular interest are the huge crabs (Robber Crabs) that are everywhere, including on the runway. Check for availability of fuel.
Beware of the powerlines on approach.
A former WWII RAAF airfield, with plans to develop it as a residential airpark.
