Aerosoft and LimeSim release Lukla Airport for Microsoft Flight Simulator

Aerosoft and developer LimeSim have released a new airport series for Microsoft Flight Simulator, and it promises to be designed with the most audacious pilots in mind. Aerosoft Mt. Everest Airports is the name of this series and it kicks off with the iconic Lukla Airport – the legendary gateway to Mount Everest and arguably one of the world’s most challenging and renowned airports.

Lukla Airport is unique in the world of aviation for its sheer extremity; while there may be airports situated at higher elevations, with shorter runways, or even with more severe upward slopes, Lukla stands out for embodying all these extreme factors in one location.

This challenging environment is compounded by unpredictable weather, the absence of navigational aids, and an uncontrolled airspace that accommodates both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. It presents a unique test of piloting skill and nerve, unmatched by any other location.
