SOUTH CAROLINA, 19 JULY 2005. Flight Sim Add-On Software publisher, PC Aviator, today announced the fifth title in its MegaScenery series of photo-scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 – MegaScenery Volume 5: Washington DC/Baltimore/Mid Atlantic

Known for its busyness both on the ground and in the air this region of the USA gives flight simmers plenty to see and enjoy from the air including flying into 3 of the major international airports this area is renowned for – Washington Dulles International (IAD), Washington National (DCA) and Baltimore Washington international (BWI). These 3 airports combined handle 4,000 movements a day and are all within a 40 mile radius of each other.

This busy area, 5,000 square miles including the cities of Washington DC and Baltimore, is recreated in MegaCITY source resolution of 2 feet per pixel aerial photos supplied by the world’s leading aerial photograph provider AirPhotoUSA. The remaining 15,000 square miles of rural regions are sourced from 5 meter per pixel satellite imagery.

This is the first time that this Mid Atlantic region has been covered at this size and in so much detail as scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator. It will give flight sim pilots hundreds upon hundreds of hours to soar and explore the very busy Mid Atlantic skies on their PCs with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
