Northern Sky Studio Releases Kahului Airport for MSFS
September 12, 2021
Northern Sky Studio has quietly released Kahului airport in Hawaii, United States. The scenery is the most detailed and accurate replica of the real airport for flight simulation, and incorporates custom modelled buildings and structures that populate the airport and the adjacent areas surrounding the airfield. All of the assets are textured with full PDR and is natively developed for the new Flight Simulator, all of this is grounded with custom satellite imagery that covers the airport itself and the surrounding areas.
A fun little Tidbit: the IATA code OGG pays homage to aviation Pioneer Bertram J “Jimmy” Hogg, a pioneer that worked in what is now known as Hawaiian Airlines.
The real airport was launched in 1952 and the majority of the traffic comes from Honolulu’s main airport (Daniel K Inouye Airport). The route between Hawaii and Honolulu is one of the busiest air routes in the United States which sits at the 13th most busiest in 2004 with over a million and half passengers traveling in the corridor.
Not much additional information was provided on the product page outside of a Wikipedia copy-paste description and a brief feature list. However, the images do speak of a reasonably well done product, to purchase the scenery (and see more screenshots), visit the product page on Simmarket. The scenery costs 18 Euros.
