Take off from the local airport and enjoy this beautiful Island in the Tasman Sea close to Australia. Recreated with the latest FSX technologies and done right to the smallest detail (you will learn how to read a newspaper in FSX!) it is just a stunning place to fly to.

Lord How Island is a small bit of paradise on earth and its only problem is that it is incredibly far from where most people live. The Australians are lucky to be able to spend time there without having to fly half the globe! For Aerosoft it was easy to decide to do this project when Mat Dalton proposed it to us. His work is excellent quality and fits perfectly in our idea to cover the more special airports with dense scenery.

Although far from our main customer base this was a scenery project we really liked as it is a prime example of what we like in FSX, a high detail environment, difficult short runway and with an additional danger as there is no alternate airport in the region.

We visited LHI 5 years ago for our wedding anniversary, so this is a bit of nostalga for me! The screen shots don't fully do this justice, as the textures give height and depth to mountain and ocean in an unprecedented maner! I had my FSX settings maxed and the island remained smooth and clear! The autogen even seems to place the houses in the right spots, and they have the &amp;quot;look&amp;quot; of the real island buildings. The airport itself is superb, except they are missing the cows in the field across the road!
I already have Lukla and German Airfields 1, but each time these people seem to raise the bar again!
Despite the isolation of this little island it is a real gem - go fly from Sydney, Brisbane or Coffs Harbour on Australia mainland (there is an excellent Coffs Harbour freeware at Avsim I think).
Well worth it, I just hope they bring out the Catalina flying boat soon with a QANTAS livery!

I just purchased this product, and must say it looks great. Every thing this product promises, it delivers.

The textures are great, so my 1048 MB Graphics card had no problems running this product, but smaller cards will do the job just the same.

Nice work Aerosoft.
I can highly recommend this product to every one with FSX on their system.

I have been waiting for this product for some time now, and now I have it.

Perfect in every possible way.

ROLAND LABORIE - VOUGHT CRUSADER F8-E MSFS
Kent
External model is beautiful...my major beef is that this airplane is ridiculously overpowered. So here is my list of things to make this airplane get a 5 out of 5 stars: - Get engine/flight model parameters correct...not even close currently - Add visual AB effect - Make the default be NO external stores - Add a paint kit - Add a an RF-8A or G variant ...a-
nd BOOM! It's a 5/5.
FLYTAMPA - LEGACY - COPENHAGEN FSX P3D3
Ian
Overall another excellent scenery from FlyTampa - great quality textures. A couple of technical issues noted. Unlike their LOWW scenery, the EKCH configuration gives only two options for runway operation. This should probably be based on wind direction on a given day, especially with those of us that use some type of real weather software. Also, I find it quite hard to believe that runway 22R would be used for arrivals with the final approach being made over the apron/gate/term-
inal areas. A more realistic set up would be using 22L for arrivals and 22R for departures.
BRSIMDESIGNS - ERCOUPE 415C MSFS
T
Went 3 stars because I love the Ercoupe so much I'm still flying this a lot, even though it's got very annoying problems. 1. The external model is absolutely beautiful, canopy may be a little oversized but not bad. Internally it's nice, but the viewing angle of the dash is strange, as if it's pointed toward the co-pilot. 2. rudder pedals, not sure if this is a limitation of the game or if it's even possible to tie in rudder controls with the yoke to match the missing pedals. By the way, in response to another reviewer here, it depends which one you have whether it has pedals or not. The one I've flown does not and all steering is by the yoke. I think ground steering is still the yoke even when one does have pedals, but can't swear by that. 3. Window fixes as mentioned in reviews would be nice, opening animation, partial opening, etc. Likewise custom call signs would be nice. 4. Feels very overpowered, but that can depend on what engine one has in it I suppose. 5. Cowl and even tail shaking with engine vibration is overboard. and 6. This is the big one I'm really here for... as mentioned by others, please fix the floating! This does feel like a glider, even at 40 knots. The Ercoupe I've flown sinks quickly, and does not bounce like mad once you're on the ground. And doesn't want to squirm all around once you're on the runway. Sure, there's no flaps, but the Ercoupe has a ton of drag with the design, wheels out, and double tail. Although it does feel stable, even a bit too much on stalls. You do feel some stall motions irl, although it really is remarkably stable even in that situation. Not trying to be nit picky, I love that BR Sim made this available and am very thankful! Even with my gripes I'm a little obsessed with this mod. If I could have anything fixed it would be that floating/glidin-
g issue for landing.
WINGSIM - MWCR, OWEN ROBERTS INTL AIRPORT P3D4
Ruston
A solid product - certainly a significant step above default scenery or typical freeware. Th-
ere are some issues to note: 1) The photoscenery is low definition. It doesn't look genuinely good until about 5000 ft AGL. Though it makes for a nice initial stage to approach in a passenger jet, maintaining immersion into the lower stages of the approach would require much more in the way of hand-placed 3D buildings and vegetation. Some is included, but not enough to dispel the "flying over a blurry carpet" sense that photoscenery produces at low altitude. 2) The photoscenery has some clouds and "sunken" cruise ships in it. Those familiar with photoscenery know that this is not uncommon with Caribbean locations. 3-
) The lawn surrounding the main terminal flickers noticeably when taxiing or overflying it. 4) Hand-placed trees ended up in the water in several places south of runway 26. In spite of these issues, there are also some nice touches, such as the animated flags and dolphins. The 3D objects are well-crafted for the most part. They took the trouble of creating a night-lighting effect on the photoscenery for evening flying, and the tarmac water and night-lighting effects look quite nice as well. Though I'd probably have felt a bit disappointed had I spent the 17 Euro full price on this purchase, the sale price is very reasonable. I'll be watching to see how this developer progresses, as there is definitely promise here.
RARA-AVIS SIMS - ZIPPY SPORT MSFS
David
This plane is completely unflyable, as it is not compatible with the new (increased torque) prop physics in MSFS SU9. Regardless of the payload, fuel and CofG settings, the plane will tumble forward onto it's prop (and cannot be recovered) as soon as any throttle is applied. The developer needs to completely reconfigure the CofG config, to account for the new prop physics. I have reached out to the developer, and if the plane is fixed and becomes actually usable, I will update this review.
COCKSPUR - AEROPRAKT A22-LS MSFS
Michael
I have a real one of these aircraft so was eagerly awaiting for an MSFS 2020 sim version. Well, here it is. I love it! The one supplied is a 'glass' cockpit and therefore different to my factory(2014)la-
yout but the rest is there. It flys like the real thing. Has the great visability that the real one has and just like the real one, its a dream to fly. I praise this highly. Rega-
rds. Mike
INDIAFOXTECHO - MB-339 - MSFS
Thilo
For the price you pay you get a very nice aircraft with some nice liveries. Flig-
ht dynamics feel really nice to fly but who does really know how it should fly! Only a real MB-339 pilot could tell us. But fore sure a nice ac to fly around in MSFS.
JUSTFLIGHT - HAWK T1/A ADVANCED TRAINER MSFS
Thilo
Top aircraft with very nice paints and cool configuration tool inside cockpit. Flys very nicely even I am not a Hawk pilot who can really assess it.
SIM SKUNK WORKS - LOCKHEED FRF-104 G STARFIGHTER MSFS
Thilo
Clickspots are very difficult and do often not react. But model itself is nice.
MEX HIGH FLIGHT - GMMX MARRAKECH MENARA INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Guy
Great airport which I owned previously when using P3D. This MSFS version looks and runs very well, and it's an interesting new location to fly to/from. Very pleased to see this scenery ported over and I hope the this developer, or others, brings new locations to this part of the world.
