Novofyodorovka (English spelling varies) is a Ukrainian Air Force base (ICAO: UKFI) (formerly Soviet Naval Aviation) on the Black Sea coast at Saky, on the western Crimean Peninsula, Ukraine.

The Soviet Black Sea Fleet used Novofyodorovka as a major air base; however, the base was also home to the only Soviet aircraft carrier landing trainer and test site, the Nazyemniy Ispitateiniy Treynirovochniy Kompleks Aviatsii (NITKA), with arresting gear and a ski-jump ramp that is a full sized replica of the bow of Admiral Kuznetsov. It continues to be leased by the Russian Navy.
During the 2008 South Ossetia War, the President of Ukraine, Viktor Yushchenko, stopped Russian pilots from using the carrier training facilities. This decision was reversed in April 2010. The Russian Navy has begun to build a similar facility at Yeysk in the Krasnodar Krai region by the Sea of Azov.
The airbase has two parallel, south-west/north-east runways, a smaller east-west carrier landing facility, and an extensive 'dispersal' complex to the north and west. The main base hangars and workshops are to the west of the runway complex.
The carrier take-off trainer faces north-east on the northern parallel runway. The carrier landing trainer is on the south-west end of that runway.
The base is modelled as it may have looked pre-1989 in it's Soviet Naval Aviation days.

About Team SDB
Team SDB, a joint effort from developers based in the UK and USA but primarily consisting of Mike Dews in the UK and Frank Safranek in the USA have been developing flight simulator scenery add-ons for over a decade. Originally beginning with work published by Alphasim (Phil Perrott) also known for Virtavia, they now release independantly.
Team SDB generally focus on UK/US airfields, airbases and military precenses and bring them to life as scenery add-ons in the simulators. They have released many titles that have been well received by the community compatible with a range of simulators such FS2004, FSX and Prepar3D. They also have other projects releases such as aircraft carrier add-ons compatible with the latest sims.
Team SDB also hope to remaster and release their scenery add-on portfolio for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.
