There are nine major Azorean islands and an islet cluster, in three main groups. These are Flores and Corvo, to the west; Graciosa, Terceira, São Jorge, Pico and Faial in the centre; and São Miguel, Santa Maria and the Formigas Reef to the east. These extend for more than 600 km (370 mi) and lie in a northwest-southeast direction. The vast extent of the islands defines an immense exclusive economic zone of 1,100,000 km2 (420,000 sq mi). The westernmost point of this area is 3,380 km (2,100 mi) from the North American continent. All of the islands have volcanic origins, although some, such as Santa Maria, have had no historical activity since the islands were settled. Mount Pico, on the island of Pico, is the highest point in Portugal, at 2,351 m (7,713 ft) in altitude. The Azores are actually the peaks of several of the tallest mountains on the planet, as measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean, breaking the surface of the Atlantic.

These 9 islands have naturally evolved into three recognizable groups located within the Azores Platform; they are:

The Eastern Group (Grupo Oriental) of São Miguel, Santa Maria and Formigas Islets
The Central Group (Grupo Central) of Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial
The Western Group (Grupo Ocidental) of Flores and Corvo.

CARENADO - C185F SKYWAGON BUSH FSX P3D
Christopher
I love bush planes, I've flown just about all of them out there but this plane is one of my favorites to fly. You get three variants of the plane, Tundra Tire, Floats and Skis. It does not however come with the standard tire variant, it seems Carenado had released that as a separate plane. This plane is so much fun to fly. The unique characteristics of the C185F Skywagon makes each variant fun and sometimes challenging. The engine sounds are quite good, both inside and outside the plane. I could listen to this engine running all day long. I can verify it works just fine in P3Dv5 like most other Carenado planes. So why four stars and not five (I probably should've knocked off two stars but I just like it so much otherwise)? It's VC is pretty dated looking compared to most other Carenado planes. You have to be able to get past that in order to really enjoy the plane. If not for that, it would be a 5 star plane easy. It is still definitely worth the cheap price in my opinion. I would give anything for Carenado to redo the cockpit and do the C185F proud but I guess it's better than having no C185F.

TROPICALSIM - ALBUQUERQUE INTL KABQ MSFS
Eric
For a Payware airport this should be a self install rather than a manual extract to proper file location. After follow the directions from this developer scenery still fails to load. This try of scenery really is meant for location on AvSim. If developer reaches out for better install instruction; or better yet, how about a .exe file extension for auto install.

Very good performance and aerodynamics and a surprising product. The plane is not so far from Aerosoft and PMDG standards.

Very good scene my friend, I love your work, keep up the good work, the Caribbean comes to life on MSFS.
HIFI TECH - ACTIVE SKY CLOUD ART FSX P3D3-5
Pierre-Olivier
Flying only in VR , ASCA combined with Active Skyv (meteo engine) is a "must have". Huge diversity of clouds , real time clouds texture, the immersion is perfect and the impact is very low even if the clouds layer is covered.

Adds life and drama to the night and I especially appreciate that there are multiple emergency light patterns used. Highly recommended, especially given the wide coverage area.
