Asian or Indian Airports.

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend good airports in Asia, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, or India please for GA planes, as there seems to be a lack of them for P3D v4

Thanks 🙂

Nathan

First, I would recommend you to go here: http://www.freewarescenery.com/fsx.html or http://www.flightsim-scenery.com/fsx.html and look at the scenerymaps for the countries that interest you. On those maps you can choose to only display P3Dv4 native airports (blue pins). There's all kinds of payware and freeware airports available, perhaps more than we can list off the top of our heads. Here is the scenery map specifically for freeware scenery in southeast Asia: http://www.freewarescenery.com/maps/scenerymap.php?region=SAS&sim=FSX. As you will see, there's a number of blue pins, but the quality varies. So it's all about what your standards are.

That said, the only two (semi) natively P3Dv4 compatible airport I have in south/southeast Asia (which is what you seem to be predominantly inquiring about) are these two:

  • FSDG Paro, in Bhutan, where I haven't actually ever flown yet... But it certainly looks good!
  • A freeware Chiang Mai VTCC scenery, converted from an older scenery by Tic: https://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=206225 In my experience it's a pretty solid scenery, definitely for a freeware!

Other sceneries that i know of being P3Dv4 compatible in those regions are:

  • Imaginesim's New Delhi VIDP, which looks dated from the screenshots.
  • FSDG's Bangalore, which looks quite nice
  • Some sceneries froma  developer called "Stinn's creations", who made one or two sceneries for India
  • Imaginesim's Singapore WSSS, which people seem to like.

Now, sicne you mentioned southeast Asian airports, I wasn't sure if maybe you are still interested in east Asia as well? There's more P3Dv4 compatible airport sin that area:

  • FlyTampa's rendition of the old (and now closed) Hong Kong Kai Tak is beautiful
  • PacSim offers Xiamen and Taipei. I quite like the latter, but am less enthused about the former
  • A little further away PacSim also offers Manilla, which is very nice!
  • Imaginesim has Shanghai Pudong ZSPD, which I've heard mixed things about.
  • Chengdu was done by Bridge
  • WF Scenery Studios did Beijing, Xian, Hangzhou and Shanghai Hongqiao
  • All the way in the west of China there is Kashgar by BGD
  • Dalian by BF flight scenery
  • Shenyang, Taoxian by Destination
  • Mohe Gulian by Dazzle Color Games
  • Over to Japan now there's several, such as Chubu Centrair and Nagasaki by PacSim
  • BDO Aviation did Osaka Kansai
  • Technobrain has done Naha and Tokyo Haneda
  • And I shouldn't forget MFSG which have done a greta number of smaller airports throughout Malaysia and Japan.

I think most if not all of these airprots cnam be found at simmarket and definitely they will show on the 'payware scenery' map I liked to above in the first paragraph of this post. But,. e.g. here's China: http://www.flightsim-scenery.com/maps/scenerymap.php?country=china&sim=comFSX

I should also indicate that I have a lot of not-native P3Dv4 airports nevertheless working in P3Dv4. Examples are Taxi2Gate's Hong Kong VHHH, Armi Project's Bangkok VTBS, Wingcreation's Tokyo Narita, Thai Creation's Kathmandu and Aerosim's Fukuoka. I also have myriad freeware sceneries installed and working that were originally for as far as back as FSX. Among those are a rendition of Hanoi's Noi Bai airport, and the new intl airport of Kunming (a beautiful scenery btw).

So, really, there's quite a lot of choice, but you may have to resort to older sceneries. Even in P3Dv4 there's still remarkable chocie, but not necessairly the bigger hubs that may be of interest to you. Personally I'd love to Kuala Lumpur and a new version of Bangkok Suvarnabhumi released native to P3Dv4.

Hope that helps!

Hey Nathan.  That's quite a comprehensive response from Benjamin... very thorough and helpful.

Here are two additional sites showing payware airports around the world.

  • DCTRY (link)
  • Google Maps for Prepar3Dv4 (link)

This one is really one of the best, an intriguing airport, with not an easy approach. And Airbuses land there in real life, but only with specially trained pilots.

Cheers, Ed

Pity no one else sells Asian airports other than simMarket. I refuse to go anywhere near them after their pathetic Support last year. I'd rather do without than patronise a seller with zero Support!

Nathan, I don't know any real GA airports in Asia and I am afraid that due to market demad most airports develped are big airliner-type ones.
But, all in all, people also fly GA aircraft into some bigger airports.

However you may check Aerosoft's Lukla, whcih could give you a lot of fun (and challenge). 😉

Bhutan doesn't even allow private pilots to land there without one of their pilots right-seating.

After watching the vid -- I understand why.  That's worse than Toncontin.

Check out A_A sceneries. I have their Kuala Lumpur, Phuket, and Bangkok sceneries which are all very nice. They are from FSX (if I remember right) but I have them working fine in P3Dv4.4. The freeware Chiang Mai is also nice. And the Don Mueang airport from Thai Creation is enjoyable. Hope that helps!

Well there is the old one from Thai Creation... It’d definitely be nice if FSDG took that one I think, to match their very nice Paro scenery!

And Nathan you’re welcome! I realize there’s many people looking for Asian sceneries, so it seemed like a good opportunity to make something of a list.
