Border To Border
Fly the entire state - BORDER to BORDER - of Pennsylvania in photoreal detail in 1 meter per pixel resolution throughout.
Cruising the skies above Pennsylvania is a pilot's dream come true - from the point of view of a flying challenge to an eye candy feast. Over 46,000 square miles of scenery varying from flatlands and farmlands to "strangely" formed striations that make the Ridge and Valley Appalachians which make for an amazing visual experience that this scenery captures every bit of.
There's over 120 state parks and national forests which make for some rugged remote bush flying or you can have some fun following larger rivers at low altitude such as the Susqehanna and the Allegheny.
There are over 511 airports for you to use as landing and departure points as you enjoy the scenery. The large size of this state enables you to enjoy flights of up to 350 miles from border to border. There’s many, many hours of flying to be done as you enjoy the eye candy of Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is over 46,056 square miles in size and has 511 airports. You'll see everything that you see in Pennsylvania in real life in the scenery.
Features New AtmosCLEAR™ Image Clarity
Pennsylvania imagery is processed using our proprietary AtmosCLEAR™ image processing. AtmosCLEAR™ is a post production image processing technique that simulates the image being photographed in a vacuum to eliminate all atmospheric haze and artifact. It's clear of atmosphere. The result is a crystal clear mathematically optimally contrasted image.
Fly Pennsylvania Both Day and Night
Pennsylvania blends seamlessly with FSX and Prepar3D night scenery so that dawn and dusk feature a blend of aerial imagery and night lighting while the scenery transitions to full day or full night where all default FSX night scenery displays.
Complete Pennsylvania Hydrography
Pennsylvania also features Flight Simulator water effects on all lakes, ponds and reservoirs greater than 3 acres from the national hydrographic database. If the water body is greater than 5 sq km, then its shorelines are hand etched pixel by pixel for highly accurate shorelines. Wide rivers also have hand etched shorelines and banks. The raw photographic water body is left untouched with the result being an authentic variety of different water colors that highlight specific properties e.g. mineral lakes whose color is maintained. Where possible water surface artifact is removed from the image. For users who like to see the water bodies as they are, then simply turn off the simulator water effects and you will see the native aerial images of the water bodies as you fly. Specific characteristics of narrower rivers require that we do not apply water effect to narrow rivers and creeks for a better scenery result.
