Interesting Fact: The Tauban runway was built using an erosion technique: washing dirt from the top of the runway to the bottom. Tauban also serves the village of Lundo, since YAJASI cannot use Lundo’s airstrip because it does not meet JAARS standards.
Time Saved: From YAJASI’s home base in Sentani to Tauban is a 50-minute flight. Overland travel is virtually impossible due to jungle, swamp, mountains, and rugged terrain void of roads. Pilot Brad McFarlane says, “The end of last week I flew eight people from Tauban to Oksibil for school and saved them a 6-day hike with a 20-minute flight.”
