At over 53, 818 square miles North Carolina is a massive and geographically diverse state that lets you experience all kinds of terrain, from challenging mountain flying in the Smoky Mountains to large expanses of flat yet detailed farmland. On top of that you get an Atlantic coastal flying experience as you navigate the outer banks and the Atlantic coast to the east of the state.
While neighboring state, Tennessee has the general perception of being home to the Smoky Mountains, the southern side of the Smokys is in North Carolina and as a result it’s in the scenery to give you stunning, high res mountain scenery that lets you get right down in those valleys as well as soaring over peaks. The highest point is Mt Mitchell at 6,684 feet (see screenshot below).
As well as the diverse land forms, you get to flying into some well known cities such as Charlotte, which is one of the country’s busiest hubs and the progressive modern twin cities of Raleigh-Durham – all, of course recreated in stunning high detail from 50 cm resolution imagery.
There are over 334 airports for you to use as landing and departure points as you enjoy the scenery. The large size of this state enables you to enjoy flights of up to 500 miles from east to west. There’s many, many hours of flying to be done as you enjoy the eye candy of North Carolina.
