EPKK Kraków XP is a highly detailed scenery of EPKK John Paul II International Airport in Kraków (Cracow), Poland.

Kraków, also spelled Cracow, is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland. Situated on the Wisła (Vistula) River in the Lesser Poland region, the city dates back to the 7th century. Kraków was the official capital of Poland until 1596 and has traditionally been one of the leading centres of Polish academic, economic, cultural and artistic life. Cited as one of Europe's most beautiful cities, its Old Town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It began as a hamlet on Wawel Hill and was already being reported as a busy trading centre of Slavonic Europe in 965. With the establishment of new universities and cultural venues at the emergence of the Second Polish Republic in 1918 and throughout the 20th century, Kraków reaffirmed its role as a major national academic and artistic centre. The city has a population of approximately 760,000, with approximately 8 million additional people living within a 100 km (62 mi) radius of its main square.

Kraków John Paul II International Airport (IATA: KRK, ICAO: EPKK) is an international airport located near Kraków, in the village of Balice, 11 km (6.8 mi) west of the city centre, in southern Poland. It is the second busiest airport of the country in terms of the volume of passengers served annually.

The airport opened for civil aviation in 1964. The Balice airport was a military site until 28 February 1968. Four years later the first passenger terminal was built there. Kraków Airport is the second busiest airport in the country after Warsaw Chopin Airport. The airport has good growth prospects, as almost 8 million people live within 100 km (62 mi) of it. The airport also has a favorable location on the network of existing and planned motorways in this region of Poland, but it faces stiff competition from the nearby Katowice International Airport in Pyrzowice, as well as other Polish airports.

Krakow Airport is equipped with the ILS, NDB, and DVOR navigation systems. In the direction 25, an ALPA-ATA cat. II approach lighting system with flashing lights installed. In the direction 07, there is a simplified IDMAN approach lighting system. The airport apron equals 90,000 m2 and currently provides space for 19 C-code aircrafts. In accordance with the ICAO standards, the Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting services provide Category Eight in terms of airport rescue and firefighting protection.

Kraków Airport as a facility is used by both military and civil aviation. The 8th Aviation Transport Base in Kraków-Balice is intended for securing and carrying out air transport tasks in favor of military units of the Polish Armed Forces and for the Polish Military Contingents. The Base uses two types of airplanes: CASA C-295M developed in Spain and Polish-built M28B/PT/GC, a derivative of Antonov 28.

Kraków-Rakowice-Czyżyny Airport (ICAO: EPKC) is one of the oldest permanent airfields in Europe, open for occasional traffic by certain types of aircraft. A portion of it is now the site of the Polish Aviation Museum with a 720-metre long and 60-metre wide segment of the original concrete runway restored for use by the museum for light planes (to 7,500 kg) and helicopters.

What is a nicely modeled product becomes marred by incredibly bad performance. In order to make sure it was not my system or addons I was using, I had three other folks with this airport compare against my performance and all of us had the same results. There is no excuse for an airport of this size to have such a huge performance impact. My system can barely sustain 30 FPS on High settings with this airport installed. Why does an airport of this size and detail run at 30 fps while the giant KLAX down the road runs at 60-70 fps? There is something flawed with this airport's performance. It is clearly a bug in the airport. It needs another sweep of optimizations. Running the freeware KSNA which looks decent yielded 45+ FPS on our test systems. The-
re is also an ortho flaw with this airport in general. I believe it is on Asobo's end to fix. Coming in for final at this airport the ortho ground colors and quality will morph before your very eyes. It is extremely distracting and ugly to witness.

A beautiful, very accurately reproduced plane. The systems work as you can see in the videos on the internet.The flight model seems to be very well made,you have to be careful with the choice of airport,because a fully loaded plane actually needs more than two kilometers of runway,and landing with cargo is about three kilometers.Ther-
e is a huge difference in the behavior of an empty versus a fully loaded aircraft. Starting systems and engines is a lot of manual learning,fortun-
ately there is an option to auto-start systems and engines,especia-
lly starting the various systems of the aircraft is very satisfying.An additional advantage is the ability to switch to the cockpit mode in English (Russian by default),you can do it at any time in the pop-up Configurator (SHIFT + 1). In particular,the autopilot is very complex and works differently than in Western airplanes,but after turning on the English cockpit,it can be managed.Interes-
tingly, after a closer look at the autopilot,it turns out that it has a lot of different functions that make flying easier,e.g.the plane can make 90-degree turns by itself,or circle non-stop. The plane carries several loads on its back,I liked the Molniya mini-shuttle the most. The sound of the engines is also polished,especi-
ally the roar of the engines at high revs and when starting.The plane's volume is adjusted so that it is the first plane where I did not have to silence the game to a minimum so as not to go deaf.
BEAR STUDIOS - MIG-15BIS P3D4-5 FSX FSXSE

After many years of owning Bear Studios older (and at times, frustrating) MiG-15 offering for FSX I came across this. At first I thought it was just an update of the old offering for P3D with FSX compatibility. It is not. It is an all new offering and it looks great in FSX. Gone are the baked in shadows of the old version with modern texturing applied. The planes are all really shiny, which is good because a a few of the textures represent civilian or museum owned MiG-15s! They are N15YY from the Combat Air Museum of Topeka, Kansas, 079 from the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington, NX87CN from Planes of Fame in Chino, California, NX90589 from the Oakland Aviation Museum, Oakland, California and my favorite (as it was the first MiG-15 I had ever seen in person on the ground and in the air) PLAAF 4115. The version in the sim has no N number but the former Combat Jets Flying Museum MiG-15 N15MG (now residing at EAA in Oshkosh) represents this plane. Best of all, this sim had done away with whatever would randomly cut out your hydraulic pump in the old version! Now the two items that kept it from getting the fifth star. Textures. While they look great and are reflective and shiny when appropriate, the camouflaged aircraft are also shiny (as are flap internals, landing gear and wheel wells. Planes. While it's great that all the planes in this addon come under one entry in Sim Objects (vs the myriad of offerings in the old one) there is no two seater offered this time around. I can only hope that comes later along with a similar update for their MiG-17!

I have to agree with one of the other reviewers as well that's it just OK. It certainly is pretty, but it's really slow. It's not nimble as far as handling and a big part of the realism for a plane for me is the sound, and this little baby sounds like it's got the default Cessna 172 sounds. That is a definite killer for me! I did give it 3 stars because it's a pretty model.

If you enjoyed the FSX version you are going to love this one. The plane itself is simple to fly but many mechanical features have been implemented to generate an extra challenge. Gre-

Very fun to fly. Very good options. Just well done.

Airport textures and gates are good. I see a distinct lack in any interior modeling and just feels like the airport is a little bare with no vehicles moving or more detailed ground objects besides textures

Good airport and ground textures. Happy with it except the interior modeling is nonexistent. If you find it on sale for under 10 euros its worth it for the beautiful area and airport itself
FLYSIMWARE LLC - CESSNA 414AW CHANCELLOR MSFS

I will have to give this 2 stars for the level of detail it does bring to MSFS. The other 3 stars I deducted for two primary reasons. First, the plane is well done; however, for $13 U.S. less, you can purchase the C310R which is by far more comprehensive and accurate than what Flysimware offers in the C414AW. Second, I have witnessed support members from Flysimware embarrass and disrespect members of their Discord who ask questions. I was one such person who took the brunt of a verbal assault for asking a question. Poor customer service is no way to establish a long-term positive relationship with the same people you want to purchase your software. In summary, if you are looking for a challenge in a twin-engine Cessna that offers a level of accuracy and system depth near unrivaled along with world-class customer support, save yourself money and get the C310. You can use that saved money to purchase other products.
