Today third-party developers have graced Microsoft Flight Simulator with a new release and new assets for upcoming scenery add-ons.
First of all, Aerosoft and Terrapearl Studios launched Molokai Airport (PHMK) in Hawaii. It’s currently available on the publisher’s own store for €13.32 including applicable VAT.
Below you can watch a trailer and read an official description and features list.
Welcome to Molokai – Known as the “Friendly Island” where no building is taller than a coconut tree!
This rendition of Molokai Airport is extremely carefully hand crafted, packed filled with detail to include absolutely hand-crafted and custom pavements/tarmac, countless custom objects and features from a fully modeled baggage claim area interior to tie-down ropes in the General Aviation ramp. This release also comes with beautiful and custom night lighting which includes custom taxiway light models with a “halo” effect.
This airport is serviced by Mokulele Airlines with non-stop service to Honolulu, Kalaupapa, and Kahului. What are you waiting for? Load up your Cessna Caravan 208 in Mokulele Airlines colors or your favorite airplane and enjoy some inter-island flights through this one-of-a-kind pristine area of the world!
