Atmore Municipal was known as our one week airport build. This scenery was developed back in our early days of development. Although it uses mostly default items, this is still one of our favorite legacy airport builds.

FSX P3D v2.5 P3D v3 P3D v4 P3D v5

Bear Island has been completely recreated in incredible detail utilizing nearly all custom objects. Bear Island v2 includes custom hi-definition textured models depicting South Florida native vegetation, trees, and more!

MSFS > Airports

MSFS

Best known from the Pilot Yellow YouTube channel,  BC Helicopters is a flight school in British Columbia, Canada. BCH was also the first operator of and is now a dealer for Cabri helicopters in Canada.

MSFS

Bear Island, Florida for MSFS is the third iteration of this popular island airstrip scenery, which started its journey with FSX back in 2013. The scenery was later reduxed in 2017, adding custom objects and vegetation.

ℹ Lite MSFS

Bowman's Beach Helistop is a helipad located on Sanibel Island, near Fort Myers, Florida. The helipad is a utility pad, operated by the Lee County Mosquito Control District. The helipad was also featured in the movie Day of the Dead (1985).

MSFS

Davidson Strip, located on the southernmost end of Amber Lake, features a complete overhaul of the airport and improves the surrounding area, adding water to multiple lakes and ponds, improving tree placement in the area, and more!

MSFS

Located in Polk City, Florida, Fantasy of Flight is home to Kermit Weeks collection of vintage aircraft. This scenery is based on the original FSX scenery by Vassilis “Dimus” Dimoulas, and has been "converted" to MSFS with his permission!

ℹ Lite MSFS

Kantishna Airport has been rebuilt from the ground up. Airport elevations have been corrected along with a custom texture for the gravel runway and parking area. Some fixes were also made to the river near the airport, excluding the water that covered areas that it shouldn't, and much more!

ℹ Lite MSFS

Montana Creek is a private airstrip located 14.5 NM South of the town of Talkeetna, Alaska. The airstrip is located in a marsh field, with the runway being surrounded on all sides by trees, except for on the North end, which is cleared.

ℹ Lite MSFS

Pine Island Helistop is a utility helipad located on Pine Island, near Fort Myers, Florida. The helipad is operated by Lee County Mosquito Control District and has been created from the ground up using default MSFS objects and materials.

ℹ Lite MSFS

Rangeview airstrip has been rebuilt from the ground up. The scenery features custom gravel textures, overhauled tree placement and roads in the vicinity of the airstrip, and more! A nearby challenging, unlisted airstrip has also been included in this package!

MSFS

Snowflake Lake is an unregistered backcountry airport just 5 NM / 9 KM to the North of Talkeetna, Alaska. Fictionally designated AK64, Snowflake Lake has a 1500 FT / 457 M long gravel runway, which makes it perfect for a wide class of general aviation and larger twin engine aircraft.

MSFS

Stampede Airport has been reworked from the ground up and includes updated 30cm/px aerial imagery, improved autogen placement and scaling around the airstrip, as well as custom object libraries, including vegetation, with the integration of Emerald Object Library.

ℹ Lite MSFS

Talkeetna has been rebuilt from the ground up with custom textures for the runway, aprons and gravel areas. Tree placement in the vicinity of the airport has also been completely redone, now exposing the marsh area to the east of the airport, as it should be.

MSFS > Regions

MSFS

Alaska Lakes: Matanuska-Susitna Valley addresses the hundreds of lakes in Alaska's Matanuska-Susitna Valley that are missing water in the default scenery. All lakes have been hand-traced, and if needed, have also been flattened to make them more suitable for floatplane operations.
