Googly scenery for MNPC Puerto Cabezas - a small international
airport in Nicaragua for which no facilities are provided in Microsoft Flight
Simulator 2004. These scenery files create the airport and add taxiways, aprons,
buildings and other airport features, so that you and your "AI" traffic can land,
taxi, park and take off in a realistic manner.
The airport, with its new Rigoberto Cabezas terminal opened in 2000, serves the
city of Puerto Cabezas and is surrounded by beautiful beaches and lush scenery.
Unfortunately, the country of Nicaragua has been embroiled in civil unrest almost
continuously since it became an independent republic in 1838, most of which is funded and fuelled by other countries seeking to interfere with Nicaragua's politics. For this reason, the country has no national airline or international flights of its own - the major powers refuse to accept its currency - and commercial traffic is confined to local flights operated by small craft from adjoining countries like those of Atlantic Airlines de Honduras and TACA Regional.
Fortunately, in Flight Simulator you do not need to worry about world politics
and you will be assured of a "virtual" welcome when you call in here. Please
say a small prayer for world peace when you do.
The scenery does not purport to be ultra-accurate. Based on high-detail satellite
imagery from Google Earth, the layout is proportionally correct but the added
airport features, such as buildings, are built from default Microsoft objects
and add-on libraries so will not look exactly like the real thing.
You are not obliged to download and install any additional scenery libraries,
but to enjoy this scenery in its entirety, you may wish to. It will work fine,
with or without. [File re-uploaded at request of AVSIM]
