Plus, a 400-page guide to re-enacting the historical events surrounding the liveries above.  Each scenario provides the following guidance:
* Real-life background information and/or a creative situation presentation
* Aircraft payload and fuel weight requirements
* An aircraft failure rate appropriate to the airframe age at the time of the event
* Start, intermediate and ending locations at default X-Plane airports ...no add-on scenery is required
* Detail flight plans specifying the route, flight parameters and potentially other requirements
* One or more graphical navigation references, each with an associated online map provided by skyvector.com
* Revelation of the real-life outcome of the scenario
* Bibliographic and circumstantial references

 

Other features of the Flight Scenarios guide include:
* The Portable Document Format (PDF) file allows a rich presentation across many hardware platforms
* A fully populated Table of Contents
* Three lists of the scenarios sorted by region, duration and difficulty to provide quick access to a desirable scenario
* Over 130 embedded Internet links
* Numerous photographs of related real-life subjects
* Many images derived from screenshots of X-Plane activity
* Separate instructions for the setup of custom navigation aids (in the form of Non-Directional Beacons within the simulator), which are required to successfully complete five of the scenarios

 

Also, two bonus liveries associated with the list above:
31. N19924, supposedly seized by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency but for which no additional information could be learned
32. N87664 (again), when it served the legitimate Canadian carrier Millardair and was registered as C-GGCS

 

Features of the liveries include:

* Each exterior texture is customized to represent the targeted paint scheme.
* Generic interior textures are designed to depict the aircraft's cabin space.
* Interior parts that may be visible on the default liveries (such as the passenger seats, passengers, cargo and mid-deck aisle walls) may be intentionally made invisible by SimSmith representations.
* Proprietary normal/bump maps are included, implementing Physically Based Rendering ("PBR") when appropriate.
* Custom ski textures are also provided.  Skis are activated in the simulator by a knobbed lever near the captain's left shoulder.
* Exclusive night-time textures (LITs) are provided, with guidance on their optional activation.
* Optional replacements for the spinning propeller texture (whose tip color is red by default) are included, along with installation instructions.

Customer Reviews
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
Graham
Brilliant scenery, and excellant after sales service from Richer Simulations. I had problems installing in P3D v5.3, but after an exchange of two messages with RS, it was all sorted out. Extremely fast response on their part. Turns out I had a problem with my SODE installation which prevented the tarmac and aprons showing. Uninstalled and reinstalled SODE and hey presto! All good. Very pleased. This scenery is compatible with P3D v5.3.
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 2 MSFS
damon
Acceptable quality. mainly use of photo textures, low res in places. good pricing and cost effective way to build up some airports in the sim. not at quality level of some of the better well known developers but to be fair, not marketed that way either and priced well. 3 star quality but extra star for price
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 1 MSFS
damon
Acceptable quality. mainly use of photo textures, low res in places. good pricing and cost effective way to build up some airports in the sim. not at quality level of some of the better well known developers but to be fair, not marketed that way either and priced well. 3 star quality but extra star for price
FRANCE VFR - LFRK - CAEN CARPIQUET MSFS
damon
One of the best France VFR airports so far, texture quality appears better than some of the earlier airports from the packs. I think the earlier airports are 'ok' quality but priced accordingly, but I was surprised how much better Caen was. still not completely on par with the big name developers but not at that price point either, I think for the price represents very good value and great addon with the France VFR NW pack. 4 star quality but 5 overall due to price
TROPICALSIM - BUENOS AIRES EZEIZA SAEZ MSFS
Peter
This is a decent Tropicalsim airport. It's basic, but does the job.
PAULO RICARDO - SANTOS DUMONT AIRPORT (SDU) RIO DE JANEIRO CITY LANDMARKS (INCLUDE) MSFS
Peter
Really well modelled. Currently this is my favourite South American airport in MSFS. Great attention to detail and makes full use of the textures, PBR and night lighting MSFS has to offer. It also has some scenic and challenging approaches!
JUSTSIM - LARNACA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Peter
Overall disappointing. Textures are not great. Night lighting is poor, except for the car park! Hopefully it gets an update.
MARIO NORIEGA DESIGNS - CAPRONI-VIZZOLA C-22J VENTURA MSFS
Kenny
Phenomenal bang for your buck with this one. This little jet is tons of fun to fly around. I enjoyed the cockpit modeling a lot, as it really does give off that strong 1980's aesthetic vibe. Fuel consumption feels about where it should be for a jet like this. Systems functionality is decent, though as with the vast majority of MSFS modules, don't expect 100% fidelity. Everything that really counts is there though, and more than just the bare bones. The flight model is fairly forgiving, though that's pretty much true for basically all MSFS aircraft. You will want to ere towards the longer options of municipal airport runways, as you're not going to have the same stopping distance as something like a 172, but that makes sense given the type of aircraft it is and the amount of energy you'll have on touchdown. All in all, would recommend. I kind of wish the civilian variant had actually entered into full production and had been a bit more popular. (Though it did see service with the Italian military as a trainer.) This must have been a joy to fly.
ONET VALLEY - PHNOM PENH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX
Adam
Scenery is incorrect, lighting doesnt exist, taxiways appear to be dirt. Dont waste your money. Default is better.
FLYTAMPA - KAITAK FS2004 FSX P3D
Christopher
If your considering the purchase of this don't wait. By far my favorite airport to fly into. The level of detail, the vehicles, the static aircraft with equipment there at the aircraft, the surrounding area around the airport--Awesom-
e. To top it off with that level of detail framerates not even noticeable. You wont find a more detailed airport anywhere.
