G'day fello flight simmers. Today I would like to share with you something new and special for the Australian flight simulation community. For many years the demand for PR sceneries and detailed airports and regions has been constantly growing. Now little know developer Norm Gibson from Gibsonsceneries has been toiling away for many thousands of hours to bring us all his first commercial software addon. Like many of us, Norm wanted more from his flight sim experience and has taken his passion to the last frontier of Australia. The Northern Territory. This product is compiled from resampled from 15m Landsat 8 Satellite Imagery produced by Earthstar Geographics, the same Imagery is used in various Commercial and Military Simulators. The goal of Gibson Sceneries is to cover large areas of real scenery at economical prices for the flight simulator enthusiast or professional whether it be for simulating fast Tactical Jet Fighters, Military Transport flights, Commuter and Domestic Airline flights or General Aviation Aircraft flying at medium to high altitudes.The scenery is perfect for enroute flight simulation. Take-off from a detailed airport, climb and fly en-route over "real" world scenery then descend into one of your other detailed airports. This is PR only, so Airports or autogen are not included. But I can say that Aussiex, Ant's, Aerosoft & Orbx sotware package addons work perfectly with this pr. The blends are extremely welldone. The scenery is not suited for low level VFR flights in slow aircraft, although the scenery is acceptable in low and fast Tactical Fighter aircraft.The scenery adds to the realism of simulated flight whether it be for recreating historical missions, commercial airline flights, military training or general aviation interest. This is best suited at this point in time to High altitude flying, be it IFR or VFR as thats where you will get the best and the most out of this package. Shallow coastal water imagery is blended with the simulated water to give a natural look to the coastlines. The PR also shows every real world and existing Airport, airfeild, farm or private strip throughout the entire Northern Territory. This initself allows for the increased development of Third party airfields to be included into this fantastic Package. The PR covers border to border coverage and shows some of the most spectacular locations across the NT. I have spent many hours flying the NT package and throughouly enjoyed every minute of what I see out the window of the aircraft. I love the fact that I can see clearly every creek, river, mountian, key locations such as Kakadu, Lichfeild national park,Mines, Bush fires and the list goes on. If you do decide to do a low level run up one of the many creeks and rivers, just watch out for the crocs.. Ok so lets look at which platforms are supported with this awesome PR package.The PR package is ready for purchase and Downloading for Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX & SE, Lockheed Martin Prepar3d v1, v2, v3 & v4. You can get it buy simply going over to http://www.gibsonsceneries.com and purchasing the NT. The pricing is very reasonable $19.95 USD. If you want to see more of Australia get the PR treatment, then do yourself and your flying experience a favour and get over to Gibson Sceneries and not only support Norm, but also the growth of the Australian flight simulation community. I firmly believe that this is a worthy investment for my flight simulation experience and realistically the $19.95 USD will never cover the cost of the thousands of development hours that has been put into making this package for all of us. Below are a whole series of pictures that I took whilst I was flying all around the NT. These are not the Developers images and do not reflect the quality of his fantastic images that he has taken to showcase this product. Like the old saying is for the NT, If you never never go, you will never never know and no greater statement could be said for this PR package. For those of you who are skeptical about screenshots, there is also a link below which I loved.

Remember buy purchasing this product, this not only supports Gibson Sceneries and the Global flight simulation community, but it also significantly contributes to the purchase of more PR for Australia. If there is enough support for the Product, Gibson sceneries may even be able to purchase a much higher Resolution PR supply to truely make our flying experience "As Real As It Gets". A Special Thanks must got out to Norm & Gibson Sceneries for creating a fantastic product.

View File 340+ Selectable Ozx airstrips If you want the OZx airstrips (340+) to show up in FSX airport selection list and being able to select to fly to and from them, you can download the BGL files at the bottom. That will add these airstrips to FSX list of airports/airstrips. The download contain one BGL for each region. This is very basic. It does not contain afcad files, but you can select the airstrips in FSX list of airports, and start at a airstrip or fly direct to an airstrip by using the FSX flight planner and GPS. The airstrips that did not have an ICOA code I have allocated a YZ.. code so to facilitate selecting the airstrip by name or by code. I have added an excel spreadsheet for all the airstrips with their ICOA codes that is included with the download file. If u don’t want to see the airstrips, they just remove the BGL. A very easy process. Submitter JayKae Submitted 05/29/2011 Category Utilities
Hi, I thought I would post here about a post I read over on the ORBX forums about a new freeware mesh for Australia available at simviation. Apparently it comes in 8 parts. I have not tested this myself, although I will be soon, I'm just re-posting the information here.

25,746 downloadsThis package includes the complete collection of Ants Aussie Airports Volumes 1 to 9. It includes 33 airports, airfields and helipads across Australia. Most of these airports include photoreal ground textures which are designed to blend best with the payware FTX textures. It is therefore recommended that you have these installed to see the airports at their best. I have also taken the oppurtunity to make a few minor tweaks and nug fixes to the scenery since its original release as separate volumes. The most visible change is that Cooma, Tumut, Tindal and Darwin now have more accurate runway markings. Here is a list of all the airports included: New South Wales and Victoria Cooma YCOM : Regional airport Tumut YTMU : GA airfield Polo Flat YPFT : GA airfield Khancoban YKHA : Snowy river hydro company airstrip Geehi : Landing ground (nrst YKHA 14910) Adaminaby YADY : Light GA airfield Gundaroo YGDO : Private airfield Wedderburn YWBN: GA airfield Wilton YWIO: Sydney Skydiving Evans Head YEVD: old RAAF base Casino YCAS: GA and glider airfield Sth Grafton YSGR : GA airfield Warnervale YWVA : GA airfield World Trade Centre Helipad YWTC : Helipad on the Yarra River, Melbourne Yarra Bank Helipad YYBK : Dual Helipads on the Yarra River, Melbourne Queensland Longreach YLRE : Regional airport Barcaldine YBAR : Regional airport Rockhampton YBRK : Regional airport Bundaberg YBUD : Regional airport Hamilton Island YBHM : Regional airport Lady Elliot Island YLTT: Private island resort airfield Northern Territory Darwin Intl YPDN : International, Regional, GA and RAAF Base Tindal YPTN : RAAF Base shared with Regional airport for Katherine Darwin Hospital YXDH : Helipad Robertson Barracks YRBK : Army helicopter base Emkaytee YMKT : Light GA airfield Batchelor YBCR : Skydiving airfield Crab Claw Is : Small airstrip (nrst YDLV 19710) Delissaville YDLV : Small airstrip Dum in Mirrie Island YDII : Small airstrip Albany Park : Old WWII RAAF base (nrst YBCR 18002) Dundee Beach : Small airstrip (nrst YDII 18005) Coomalie Creek YCCR : Old WWII RAAF base
