In my own search for airport glory I have compiled a list of Payware companies that I am aware of that make good quality airports for the United States area.    I have no desire to fly overseas or in Europe so this thread is only for US airports.    If you know of anymore airport makers and what airports they make please add it to this thread.   Super high quality Freeware counts as well.

 

FlyTampa

-------------

Chicago Midway - KMDW

Buffalo - KBUF

Boston Logan - KBOS

Tampa - KTPA

(I did not include any of their legacy airports)

 

Flightbeam

--------------

San Francisco Int. - KSFO

Phoenix Sky Harbor - KPHX

Washinton Dulles - KIAD

 

FSDream Team

---------------------

JFK Int. - KJFK

Los Angeles Int. - KLAX

Dallas Fort Worth Int. - KDFW

Fort Lauderdale Hollywood - KFLL

Las Vegas McCarran - KLAS

Chicago O'Hare - KORD

 

ImageSimulation

---------------------

Atlanta Int. - KATL

Denver Int. - KDEN

Charlotte Douglas - KCLT

San Jose Int. - KSJC

 

 

I am aware of BluePrint Simulations but they are off my list as I don't like it when people hide fine print and then when you buy their products they won't work on a 64-bit system and you out your money.  No refunds.   I also think their airports look to sterile, like a clean pristine shiny white hospital ward.   Just my opinion.

Orbx - Jackson Hole, Juneau, Ketchikan (they make way more stuff obviously, but I don't know if you're just geared toward more "major" airports suitable for airlines)

Aerosoft - Anchorage X

ImagineSim KMCI

Aerosoft Fairbanks, and Dutch Harbor

I know PADU is quite small, but definitely capable to handle the 737 - at least the smaller versions - and possibly also the 757 (with a bit of luck), and landing those planes there is a nice challenge.

A few others.

 

Ontario KONT by Shez - http://library.avsim.net/search.php?SearchTerm=kont&CatID=fsxscen&Go=Search

 

Toledo KTOL by Shex - For FS9 but works fine in FSX http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=&Name=&FileName=tol2011.zip&Author=&CatID=root

 

St. Louis KSTL by Taxi2Gate - http://secure.simmarket.com/taxi2gate-st.-louis-international-airport-kstl-fsx-(es_6339).phtml

 

Orlando KMCO - Once version out now sold via FSDT but produced by Cloud9 and also Taxi2Gate is almost done with a new version of KMCO.

 

LatinVFR has Key West.

 

Drzewiecki Design is doing KEWR, KLGA and KJFK.

 

 

Plus there is KIAH coming from FSDT and KDEN in progress by FlightBeam. Hopefully KDEN will be out by the end of the year. KIAH probably wont be done until March or later.

 

SunSkyJet is wrapping up Detroit and is looking good so far.

I dunno about Latin vfr Miami. It's a bit harsh on frames. IMHO it's not as good as FSDT or Flightbeam.

The newer V2 is much better in looks and frames...

It is indeed, but since Southwest Airlines doesn't fly there it slipped my mind to include it.   :P    Same reason why I didn't include Anchorage X but this should be an ALL inclusive list of all 50 states.    Don't stone me!  Forgive!  FORGIVE!

Regarding OBYX PAJN AND PAKT airport sceneries, do we need to buy OBXY base scenery in order to buy and operate OBYX PAJN AND PAKT airport sceneries or can those two airports run without OBXY base scenery?

Orbx airports are designed for Orbx regions.  Will they work without the underlying region?  Generally yes, but you may be missing a few things and will probably have some elevation issues as they assume the underlying mesh from the region.

I can confirm what Scott says... There is a lot of elevation problems... That's when I got the PNW... And then the rest just kinda happened after I saw how good it was...

yes indeed. But we are used to hearing visitors tell us they are going "back to the states".

Tttocs and Maple Syrup,

 

Thanks for answer. So in order to use OBXY PAJN and PAKT sceneries, I should buy OBXY's Alaska base scenery first. Right?

Yeah, that's recommended. PAJN is a part of their South Alaska region and PAKT is part of their Pacific Fjords.

Looking at this thread makes me glad I have no interest in airliner simulation, I have saved a ton of money (and performance issues) not having 99% of these, LOL.

Wondering that nobody mentioned Aerosofts Anchorage PANC which comes along with LHD and Z41 and alot of goodies (moving trains with signal horns, automated crossing gates, nice AESlite traffic, ...) I really love this one.
