Unity Airport Bagheera Airstrip (ICAO: SLBG) (formerly known as Bagheera Airstrip) is a small public skyport free-floating 200m above the surface of the 'Bagheera' region in southern Satori. It is the southernmost airstrip in the combined Nautilus/Blake/Satori landmass. The airstrip has been rebuilt, and is under new ownership.

Background

In January 2014, Meesterp Resident established Bagheera Skyfield to offer a challenging destination for skilled bush pilots and, in particular, for the purpose of serving as third anchor in SL Grid Flight's (SLGF) Satori grid flight route.

The airstrip was also utilized by long-range search and rescue (S.A.R.) helicopters.

Located at the southern tip of Satori, the skyport was equipped with a single 90m x 12m runway, and direct access to the starting point of Route 8 road network designed by the Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW). 

Following renovations in mid January 2015, the airfield's Sky Lounge and medical emergency post were removed due to resizing, and the facility was renamed "Bagheera Airstrip" in May 2015.

As of Christmas Day 2016 Bagheera was acquired by the United States Navy Second Life (USNSL) and operated as a public Aerodrome as well as a Naval Air Facility, designated 'NAF Bagheera'. A remodel was carried out at the end of 2016 and the facility also housed part of the USNSL Parachute School. In June 2017, the airstrip was then purchased by two members of Two Tangos Incorporated group, Akasha Finisra and Nicholas Philly. As a consequence, the facility was remodeled by Philly Designs (former designers of WYC Executive Airstrip on the Thalipolli region of Nautilus).

Finally, in July 2018, to better support the fast growing air transportation system of Second Life®, Bagheera Airstrip was acquired by the Unity Airport group, owned by Fey Twin and Gota Blackheart, and redesignated Unity Airport Bagheera Airstrip. The mission will be to continue the five-year history of this landmark.

Bagheera has a 60 minute auto-return policy on rezzed items and a sim-wide limit of 500 prims.
