Aeropuerto Alejandro Velasco Astete, also known as "Cuzco airport" is well known as one of the most chellenging airports in the world. Just go to YouTube and you will find enough video`s to proof that point.

There are three main reasons, for starters it is located in a narrow valley with peaks towering over 2000 feet on both sides. Second, the main approach is a complex circle approach that gets you close to mountains a few times. Lastly the airport is located at 10.800 feet in a climate where temperatures soar to three digits (or >30 Celsius) often in summer. Density altitude becomes a main problem under those conditions. To make matters worse, the airport is not very well equipped and the runway and taxiways are uneven and build on sloping terrain. That’s why only pilots with a special training are allowed to land there. Of course in FSX its possible for everybody.

In FSX this airport is challenging and entertaining, it allows simpilots to do procedures that are not standard. It is in fact difficult, in our HQ we all flown this airports and all of us managed to crash at least one time. Just flying a simple circuit in a Cessna 182 means forgetting a lot of what is normal at other airports, in fact even STARTING some aircraft is difficult at this altitude!

Features:

  • Custom terrain, landclass and LOD11 mesh of Cuzco and surroundings (reaching to the famous Inka site Machu Picchu)
  • Custom landclass textures and seasons
  • Cuzco scenery with city, landmarks and airport
  • Extremely dense and realistic autogen buildings (typical ochre roofs)
  • Custom aerial image with night effects
  • Special sloped runway for highest possible realism
  • AI aircraft and airport vehicles *
  • Circle approach mission (including audio)
  • Very easy on frame rates
  • Manual contains chapters about high altitude operations
  • Simple installation (without DRM)
  • Owners of Cuzco X get 50% discount on the Flight Calculator (very useful to calculate how the altitude affects your aircraft performance).

* Due to the runway slope and FSX limitations no AI takeoffs or landings are possible at this moment (except in missions).

DOMINICDESIGNTEAM - KIND INDIANAPOLIS INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Brian
The Good: ---------
- o - Gorgeous Terminal with fully modelled airside interior with animated peeps. o - Detail models in general with HD texturing with PBR materials. o - Most buildings 3D modelled. o - 72 FPS in the PMDG 737 sitting at the terminal with no AI traffic running on my HIGH/ULTRA settings. o - Nicely lit terminal area and cargo area at night. Interior lighting good. The Bad: ----------
- o - Disonnected Jetways. They are off by a foot or two on many gates. o - HOLY BLUE EDGE LIGHTS BATMAN! Way to many edge lights. These need to be hand placed. Wish devs would stop relying on the SDK's stringer placement system. Make a 3D light model and hand place it in the proper locations! o - Night lighting missing from areas where it should be such as the parking lots and the west side ramps of the airport. There are HUGE 32' tall ramp lights there in real life. o - Lumberjacks need to cut down some trees on the airport grounds. Way to many trees taht don't belong on the airport grounds. o - Extremely low LOD level on the ground taxi markings making them pop in to view from the cockpit. We should never see taxi line textures popping into existence in visual range from the cockpit. o - Lack of clutter in cargo area and across the whole airport in general. Needs more lived in look. o - Weird terrain mesh in places but at least its not near the terminal area. o - Some poor ground marking mistakes Ove-
r all a decent start to KIND but there are some pretty bad mistakes/ommiss-
ions that show a lack of quality control. A few more days in the developer oven would have made a far better product worthy of 4 to 5 stars. I own all of Dominic's scenery and they get better with each new product as they learn the SDK. Nudge the jetways to the building, remove the excess edge lights, fix broken ground markings and bad LOD and toss some cargo containers and palettes in the cargo ramps and we'll have a winner!

Very disappointed. Color adjustment leaves trees and building shadows blue. Too many red roofs for houses, which is not usual for Montreal. Only conifer trees, when it is mostly broadleaf for Montreal. Many flat roofs are shimmering, which is annoying. Density of trees is also too sparse. I should not have bought it.

Tried the free 7-day trial and couldn't fly without the camera shake effects again after that. Great customization options and great developer support as well.

SPINOZA - LAUSANNE LSGL MSFS

A really nice work, with many lovely details, like hangars doors open which allow to see aircrafts inside. Those who know La Blécherette, will recognize the very old typical hangar, with its metallic armature. The restaurant in wing form, is also modelized, including the transparent glasses. There is also some other landmarks around the airport, like the new football stadium. The agricultural farm, in the border of the runway, which was transformed in some very horrible buildings by MSFS, are now fully modelized in details, including a tractor and the farmer! You can choose between 3 helipad, near the REGA building, if you are helicopter pilot. Final-
ly, you have a lot of nice night illumination.

Visited EFIV last nite. Much better than the MS/Asobo generic airport, but… - the airport ground texture seems to be taken from a winter shot, because they are very bright (snowy?) - which does not really fit for summer. Also, I found the resolution to be rather low. - the runway signs at the threshold have runway numbers inverted. This should be corrected asap, because it so wrong
SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - CANADA - EAST MSFS
Dewald
Yes, yes , yes. Keep the regions coming. It was the very first animals of any kind that I saw in the sim. I cannot fly without FS Birds. I cannot wait to go look for the Penguins in Antarctica or the Condors in South America. FANFRIKKINTASTI-
C addon. Thanks for your hard work. Please keep the regions coming.
