Cami De Bellis Releases Kathmandu (VNKT)

Saturday, May 9, 2020

Solo scenery designer Cami De Bellis has released her latest payware airport today, with Kathmandu the newest in the developer's quite varied range of products.

Originally created as freeware back in 2009, De Bellis' the 11 year old scenery is dubbed a "bike" in comparison to today's scenery, considered a "Ferrari" in her hypothetical example.

"After 5 months of hard work, sometimes - for most days - 10/12 hours a day, researching reference photos, charts and every kind of information, I [built] the most beautiful scenery I ever did in this 13 years of X-Plane presence", De Bellis says in an X-Plane.org Forum post.

Considered the starting point on the trek to Mt. Everest Base Camp, numerous flights bound for the world's tallest mountain depart every day, whether it be carrying passengers to Lukla or sightseeing trips around the Himalayas.
