City of Gilgit from MSK for FSX

110899_GC (9)It was hard to select a header picture for this release which shows both the surrounding terrain and the airport details, so let us start by pointing you directly at the product page, where you can see more promotional pictures.

If you’d rather wait until you’ve read the rest, Gilgit Airport serves the city and District of the same name in Northern Pakistan. Because of the surrounding terrain, the airport isn’t available to the usual commercial aircraft types, instead being served by PIA ATR-42 turboprop, along with visits from Air Force C-130 Hercules transports. With high amounts of detail such as airport vegetation, birds and humans, the developers do recommend turning off scenery shadows to improve FPS, but it looks like an interesting challenge to visit! MSK’s scenery comes not only with the airport itself, but also the entire city around it.
