What could be more fitting for any flight simmer wanting to
fly a photoreal world than the state that brought us flight. 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.
