Hong Kongs Kai Tak Scenery

Recommended Posts

While i wait for the 747-400 to arrive on stand i have decided to train initially out of Kai Tak! A stupid decision maybe, but the approaches will sure as heck test my flying abilities!I was searching through FS2004 and found Kai Tak is still there as Hong Kong Old Airport!I was just wondering if anyone out there can recommend some really good, high detail scenery for the airport and surrounding area?Kind RegardsJamie

I have Aerosofts Hong Kong 2004. Its about as good as your going to find; re-creates the checker board approach fairly nicely as well as adding all the buildings in downtown. Its not the greatest thing Ive ever seen but it sure beats default.

The scenery by Roger Mole I got from Simaviation is a frame rate killer and brings my AMD 64 3800 + X850XT combo down to single digits on approach - without AI traffic! Unbelievable and totally unflyable. Are there any other freeware attempts as this available anywhere else than Avsim?

Also, for variety, add Princess Juliana airport (TNCM) on St. Maarten to your repertoir. It has a relatively short runway but 747s land there every day. Withouth any ILS to rely on it is great place to test your stick/rudder skills. Michael J.
