WELCOME TO COLOMBIA

It was in Cartagena where Colombian aviation took its first steps.
At the end of 1919, the Cartagena businessmen Nemesio De la Espriella and Guillermo Echavarría from Antioquia began negotiations to import French aircraft from the Farman de Aviación company, the only inconvenience was the arrival of the aircraft in Cartagena, unarmed, in a box. In September 1919, Echavarría and other Medellín industrialists founded the Compañía Colombiana de Navegación Aérea, or CCNA, with Cartagena as its center of operations, but CCNA's headquarters remained in Medellín.
Immediately a hangar of palm trees was erected on the Boca Grande land, which at that time was a simple peninsula covered with mangroves, icons and the occasional farmhouse. The hangar has the following specifications: 30 m (meters) from Boca, especially to be able to leave the bay with seaplanes and land vehicles, from where the Columbia Air Navigation Company departed in 1920.
On February 22, 1920, the mail flight to Barranquilla caused so many surprises that a week later the first stone with which Colombia's national airport was built was buried in the sand and they thought of importing a new plane, El Goliat, baptized as Barranquilla. In 1920, the first Cartagena airport, owned by the Colombian Air Navigation Company, was established on land in Boca Grande. On January 26, 1928, Cartagena received at this airport the greatest pioneer of transatlantic aviation: Charles Lindbergh, who landed at the helm of his ship "Spirit of St. Louis". After several accidents, French technical problems and competition with SCADTA in Barranquilla, the CCNA was dissolved in 1922

In 1930, a new airport owned by the Colombian-German Air Transport Society (SCADTA) was inaugurated on the island of Manzanillo. Later, in 1939, during the German seizure of assets, SCADTA was forcibly merged with the state-owned company SACO (Colombian Air Service), renaming itself and renaming itself Avianca, short for Aerovías Nacionales de Colombia.3.

In 1947 LANSA appeared, located in Crespo and built two runways; one main runway was 1,600 m long and the other 930 m long for the crosswind. At the time, Cartagena had two airports, but in the 1950s LANSA sold these facilities to Avianca, which closed its operations in Manzanillo and moved to Crespo.

The Rafael Núñez International Airport of Cartagena is located within the urban area of ​​the city in the Crespo neighborhood, just 10 minutes from the historic center and the Cartagena de Indias Convention Center and 15 minutes from the hotel zone of the city. .

Currently the Rafael Nuñez Airport connects Cartagena de Indias with 8 national destinations: Bogotá, Cali, Medellín, Bucaramanga, Pereira, Montería and San Andrés, Cucuta; and 11 international: Lima, Panama City, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, New York, Toronto, Montreal and Amsterdam, Orlando and Mexico.

anthony
All the taxiways and taxiway signs are incorrect. Too many misplaced taxiways lights as well.
FSDG - NAIROBI XP X-PLANE 11
Elias
Poorly done FSX conversion. Textures, lighting, buildings not really standard level for payware. Not even a Tower-View has been configured. At least SAM integration, Marshallers (at the cargo stands) and Ortho compatibility. 2 Stars
TERRAINY STUDIOS - RV-8 - MSFS
Randy
It's just ok. The real RV 8 is known for it's speed and rate of climb. This one has a cruise speed of only 105 knots and the climb way is too sluggish.
SIAMFLIGHT - VTBS SUVARNABHUMI AIRPORT THAILAND MSFS

Excellent rendition of VTBS. Amazing & accurate detail, plus they continue to keep it updated. I look forward to more Thai and ASEAN airports from this developer.

FSCGAA - ULAANBAATAR INTL AIRPORT ZMCK P3D4-5
Mag. Johann
FSCGAA did a great job in creating the new Ulaan Baatar airport (ZMCK) for P3D V4/V5. The textures are high quality, and the performance (FPS) is great too. I can recommend this scenery to everyone, who wants to fly to the capital of Mongolia, with a beautiful asian countryside!
TERRAINY STUDIOS - RV-8 - MSFS
Philipp
Handles good but the performance is not as good as in the real one. Cruise speed and climb rate seem pretty low.
ARIMA - EDLW DORTMUND INTL MSFS
Pavel
Any work deserves respect, but I would give an average rating, maybe even lower. I'm sure the author could have done better if he'd put in more effort. The biggest drawback is the incorrect operation of the ILS on both runways. This is a glaring shortcoming and it is desirable to correct it.
SCENERYTR - ISTANBUL AIRPORT LTFM MSFS
Ivan
Excellent work! Guys, if possible, please make a custom differents in thresholds for more realism
SIMPORT TEAM - SORSTOKKEN STORD AIRPORT ENSO MSFS
Markus
The airport features nice modelling for buildings in a good amount of detail and using crisp textures. What I do not like is the fact that the paved ground textures (apron and runway) are not at all life-like, too clean and perfect. Adding to that are the ground markings which are also too clean and sterile looking with a cartoonish looking contrast. So the quality of the ground textures does not match the good quality for the buildings. A-
nother drawback is the lack of aviation-relate-
d attention to detail: - Windsocks are missing - Localiser antenna is missing (visible as blurry part of the aerial imagery) - A generic model has been placed where the VOR station is located, however it is not the model of a VOR station - Wrong type of approach lighting - PAPI lights do not match the position of the lights visible on the aerial imagery So overall this is a good effort on the part of the buildings, but lacking in ground textures, markings and aviation related details.
