Cape Canaveral is best known as the location where NASA launches its spacecraft
but those who been there know it is also a very beautiful location where sea and
land merge. So far there was no good coverage of this location Aerosoft and
Thomas Hogstrom decided to set that right.
Cape Canaveral 2005, Space Coast, is build on a photographic base and
incorporates the objects included in FS2004 by Microsoft, supplemented with a
large collection of objects, autogen scenery. The imagery used is meticulously
color corrected and matched to suit FS2004. If you use FSX, you can now get
To make it a complete product we
also added a fine aircraft so you can explore the space coast. The Piper Super
Cub in the amphibian version is perhaps the most versitile aircraft possible.
Light and small enough to get into the smallest fields while the 160 Hp engine
on this version is strong enough to get you up in some serious wind. Just don't
get into IFR conditions (you'll need the complete version of the Super Cub we
also offer for that). The 57 page manual, that includes all charts for the three
included airports and all checklists for the Super Cub plus a set of well
documented startup situations will get you up and flying in no time. Both the
scenery and the aircraft are designed with framerates in mind and will give
excellent results, even on less then stellar hardware.
There is no better way to show a photographic scenery then to compare it with
real areal images, so you can make up your own mind if we succeeded.
There are three airports on Cape Canaveral, but only one of them is a
'normal' airport, Merrit Island, a rather industrial small airport. The other
two have massive runways, to handle the Space Suttle and the other special
aircraft used by NASA (for example the special B747 used to transport the
Shuttle). KTTS, known under its old code X68 in FS2004 btw, for example has a
15,000 feet runway, wide enough to land on actually in a Standard Cub.
