The talented folks at NZA Simulations are just about to launch their latest scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator. Following a series of stunning releases like Christchurch Airport, Mount Cook, and Nelson Airport, just to name a few, NZA has now revealed that their highly anticipated Milford Sound Region pack for Microsoft Flight Simulator is set to launch within a few days, on September 13th!
This upcoming release promises to offer an incredibly realistic scenery of this beautiful region in New Zealand, not just focusing on Milford Sound Airport (NZMF) itself, but also including seven additional airstrips and multiple huts scattered throughout the region.
But that’s not all! On the same day, NZA Simulations will also release a free Milford Sound Region Expansion. This expansion, available exclusively from the NZA Simulations’ website, will add even more locations to explore in the greater Fiordland area. Note that this free expansion will require the base “Milford Sound Region” pack to function, which simmers will be able to purchase from the NZA webstore, Orbx, or the MSFS Marketplace upon release.
Milford Sound, located in Fiordland National Park, is one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand. It’s a destination that captures the essence of New Zealand’s natural beauty and offers a very unique flying experience. The area is characterized by steep cliffs, lush forests, and stunning waterfalls, all of which make for an incredibly scenic flight. The topography challenges pilots to navigate through narrow fjords and mountainous terrain, offering a flying experience that is as challenging as it is breathtaking.
NZA Simulations’s rendition of Milford Sound pack will include not just one but eight different airstrips, each with its unique challenges and vistas. This variety allows for different types of flying experiences, from landing on short, grassy airstrips to managing more complex approaches in variable weather conditions. It’s a playground for general aviation enthusiasts who love to test their skills in diverse settings.
Milford Sound Airport is in itself very interesting. Although small, it’s bustling with activity, primarily from tourist operators.
