Kittyhawk First-Flight Airport, by Verticalsim – FREE

Verticalsim Studios has given us a precious little gem in the history of aviation: Kittyhawk First-Flight Airport (KFFA), the site where the Wright brothers performed hundreds of pre-flight gliding experiments before finally taking off in their first powered flight.

Right beside the airport is The Wright Brothers National Memorial, located atop nearby Kill Devil Hill. It’s a 60-foot granite pylon paying homage to the Wright Brothers and the first sustained heavier-than-air flight. The default scenery is missing this memorial and also some typography in the runway, but this is all fixed in this FREE airport. An emotional location for any aviation history fan!
