As well as the main state, this title also features all satellite islands of Tasmania enabling Island hopping adventure from the Australian mainland.
Tasmania is 26,410 square miles and has 11 public airports.
As well as Island hopping adventure, you get to fly over a variety of gorgeous Tasmanian terrain from the mountains in the west of the state to the farmland in the east. On top of that you have 1,200 miles of coastline. dozens of islands, rivers, estuaries and bays. This title also includes King Island and Flinder's Island in Bass Strait in between Victoria and Tasmania.

If you're training to be a pilot, are an actual licensed pilot or just a flight simmer with big dreams of flying, this scenery for the entire state of Tasmania is just what you need to enjoy a part of Australia in photoreal detail, as a training aid or to simply experience flying over a real Tasmania on your PC Sim - FSX, FSX:STEAM or Prepar3D.
Fly Tasmania Both Day and Night
Tasmania blends seamlessly with FSX and Prepar3D night scenery so that dawn and dusk feature a blend of aerial imagery and night lighting while the scenery transitions to full day or full night where all default FSX night scenery displays.
Selected Tasmania Hydrography
Tasmania also features Flight Simulator animated water effects and highly accurate hand etched shorelines all lakes, ponds and reservoirs greater than 1 sq km. Wide rivers also have hand etched shorelines and banks. The raw photographic water body is left untouched with the result being an authentic variety of different water colors that highlight specific properties e.g. mineral lakes whose color is maintained. Where possible water surface artifact is removed from the image. For users who like to see the water bodies as they are, then simply turn off the simulator water effects and you will see the native aerial images of the water bodies as you fly. Specific characteristics of narrower rivers require that we do not apply water effect to narrow rivers and creeks for a better scenery result.
PhotoScenery Optimized and Realigned Airports
Photoscenery tends to make misaligned airports and runways stand out. We've gone through the entire list of primary airports in the state and realigned any misaligned runways and removed all other airport infrastructure so that the airports are optimized for display over the photoreal scenery. We've also reclassified any misclassified runway surfaces, e.g. paved vs gravel, dirt, grass, etc. These photoreal optimized airports do not preclude you from using any 3rd party airports which, when created accurately, will properly overlay over the photoscenery.
